Quick Frivolous Question
A question for Ed's legions of devoted readers: who or what is the "Dobb" in a Dobb kit (men's toiletry organizer)? The question came up at a family gathering and I have so far been unable to answer it.

I read this question and thought "oh, I always thought it was a Dopp kit. Hmm, that's kind of embarassing." Turns out it is a Dopp kit, named for Charles Doppelt. See this site for who Charles Doppelt is.
oops, apparently you can't use html, or i'm a dumbass. It's http://www.worldwidewords.org/qa/qa-dop1.htm.
