Sonny and Cher

Salvatore Bono The short and older half of the Sonny & Cher show hit a tree skiing and then was gone. . . But like his gravestone says: “the beat goes on.” Cherilyn Sarkisian, AKA Cher, known for her low singing voice and long black hair, poked fun at her hubby on TV in ‘71. Her daughter, now named Chaz, has turned into her son! *Sonny and Cher were a very famous wife/husband duo of the 60's and early 70's. Cher continued singing even till today. When they broke up, Sonny became a politician and served in the House of Representatives. His skiing accident was a great tragedy!

Terrific blend of the facts, fascination, and fun! So well-done! You really, really nailed it, Andrea. Congrats on your richly-deserved first-prize winner. (After all the clerihews I've been cranking out lately, you'd think I could have given you a 'run for your money,' but yours is truly head-and-shoulders better than mine or any other. The judging was expert, spot-on). A FAVE for me! Best wishes, Gershon
