I was snooping around for the source of “Many hands make light work” to use on 5 for Fairness and, lo and behold, landed on John Heywood’s Wickipedia page. As Middle said when he was about three and a half and was informed that someone dressed up in a very unfamiliar  costume was called Woody Woodpecker,

“Woody Woodpecker?  Never heard of him.”

John Heywood?  Never heard of him.

My bad.
