Ryan recently came across a newspaper clipping from 1984 mentioning Cyndi Lauper hanging out with Rizzo the Rat for some unspecified event. Jog found two pictures of the pair, each from a seemingly different occasion as noted by their attire and her hair. One is a photo that appears to have been scanned from a magazine, and the other is a screenshot with a watermark indicating that it may have aired on VH1. I couldn't find anything more about either appearance, but Carolyn messaged Steve Whitmire on his Instagram who said he remembers it and may write about it in a future blog.
I just wanted to park this all here so we have a record of it and also as a reminder to keep an eye out for the launch of Whitemire's future blog. And of course to open it up for anyone else who may have more information. —Scott (talk) 15:40, August 22, 2020 (UTC)
