Old McDonald Celebrities

This tweet got me wondering: how many others meet the same critera?

Googling around found a stack overflow question where someone helpfully harvested a list of about 4,000 people that's good enough for this. Grepping turned up four candidates with the vowels in the right order, but with confounding ones.

Celine Dion
Eddie Cleanhead Vinson
Jennifer Aniston
Leslie Twiggy Lawson

Eddie "Cleanhead" Vinson meets the bill if we don't consider his nickname. He was a jazz musician who lived from 1917-88 — I think I'll check him out. And TIL Twiggy's real name.

Also: Thank you, George Takei, for finding worthwhile things on X and crossposting to Mastodon. You are a national treasure.
