This winker's a stinker:
True or not? I don't feel like researching, so... whudduyal think?Felix Winker invented the wink - as we now know it - in 1823.
Due to a loophole in early 19th Century laws he was able to patent the technique and collected royalties every time someone winked.
He became fabulously wealthy and lived to the ripe old age of 104.
In 1879, two years before his death he was immortalized in the year's most popular song entitled "Happy as That Old Winker"
