Knwo*, etc. (for Know*)

"I know you are but what am I?" one can imagine Pee-wee Herman and Bigfoot both saying—with knowing, kitschy outsiderness. First of all, let me say, I loved "Pee-wee's Playhouse" and I love Bigfoot. Once upon a time, when two relative wee ones would set foot in my house (repository of the complete set of "Playhouse" videos), the littlest one would instantly cry, "Pee-pee!" (It didn't mean what you might think.) "Pee-wee," the bigger one would correct him, rolling her eyes just a bit. You may roll your eyes too when I tell you that a Minnesota Bigfoot was recently caught on tape by a couple of skeptical hunters. Okay, I know how it sounds, but you know, who knows? Knwo* was found eight times in OhioLINK, Konw three times, Kowled* and Knwl* twice, and Knolw* once. Takes one to know one.
