The Legend of Red Adair

While we are on the subject of Red Adair, he's the subject of an interesting urban legend. I think it was in the 1970s, Red's popularity had waned a bit from his 1960's peak (peaking again in 1991 when his company helped put out the Iraq War I oil fires), but he was still a C-list celebrity. Anyway old Red was in an airport lounge, and he sees two guys staring at him, talking between them. Then one of them approaches Red. "Say, you won't happen to be that guy, Red Addair, would ya?" Red says, "Yes, yes I am." The guy yelled to his buddy, "See, I told you!" Then he turned to Red and in an liquored-up whisper asked: "Tell me buddy, are you still f***ing Ginger Rogers?"
