At the beginning of his career as a comedian, Don 
Knotts was a ventriloquist.  When he eventually grew 
"tired of playing straight man for a hunk of wood ... he 
tossed the dummy overboard off a ship in the South Pacific. 
He swore that he could hear the dummy calling for help as 
the ship sailed on, leaving him bobbing helplessly 
in the waves." (Wikipedia)
