Who has the best gift of gab?
According to Irish legend, a kiss of the Blarney Stone endows the kisser with special, superhuman smooth-talking abilities, known as "the gift of gab." Kissing the stone isn't easy—to do it, you have to bend over backward at the top of the Blarney Castle wall (usually employing the help of a friend), and kiss the stone while upside-down—but millions are said to have done it, including actresses, politicians, and famous writers. Which famous figures do you think were actually blessed with the gift of gab?
