Some friends and I were playing Pictionary in the late 80's. The person whose turn it was to draw drew a man in a bowler with a large nose holding a card. It was immediately and unmistakably Karl

Malden from the Amercian Express commercials. It was the most astonishingly accurate and abstract free hand rendering caricature I have ever seen, and to this day none of us forgets it.
