Also, fun fact: even though Jeeves is now regarded as the iconic butler-type, he wasn't a butler but a valet. They're different things.

Jeeves referred to himself as a 'gentleman's gentleman', that is, a valet. He strenuously objected to being described as a butler and on those occasions when Bertie Wooster asked him to 'butte' he made sure he extracted a suitable concession from Bertie, typically agreement from Bertie not to wear an article of clothing that Jeeves found to be particularly egregious.

I inherited a copy of a record he released entitled "Best, formerly of the Beatles." On the cover, the 'formerly' is so small as not to be noticed. I hear it sold a lot of copies.

I did some searching, because I really wanted to see that album cover. It's pretty funny - it has a picture of all 5 Beatles (Stuart Sutcliffe was the other that didn't make it), with a small circle around Pete's face. Oh, and the official title is actually just "Best of the Beatles". It was released by Savage Records in 1965.

I have that album. Yep, I was duped back then, too. Best of the Beatles indeed!

That's what NaCl is. It's "better known" as salt. We don't say please pass the sodium chloride.

In the medical field, NaCl is Sodium Chloride... I agree with Sadmin, it should be accepted

"Better known" means he's asking for common name. "Sodium chloride" is what's written in the question, albeit in symbolic form.

Let's be honest here. If you know it's sodium chloride, you know it's salt. Stop being a pedant.

And regardless, if you know "sodium chloride," then you probably also know "NaCl," so it is equally known, not even better known.

I think his appearance in Black Adder series is even more famous, a classic of British comedy. It was super weird seeing the utterly stupid Prince Regent as House ...

Check out the series "Jeeves and Wooster". It's hysterical. And then there was Blackadder....

I knew him originally from "Jeeves and Wooster". The first time I tried watching "House" I couldn't get Bertie Wooster out of my head, so I gave up. Later on I did watch it though. And as ColoHarpare says - the series is hysterical.
