Daft Daffy Baker

The title of my previous post, Daft, is a play on the surname Taft.  And since this is likely another prompt of the inner twin world, lets investigate the etymology: 
  • daft (adj.) Old English gedæfte "gentle, becoming... from PIE *dhabh- "to fit together" (see fabric).  .... influenced by analogy with daffe "halfwit" (see daffy)
And so now enters Daffy Duck... or is that Drake?!  Following the leads on Daffy's wiki page, note the following info:
  • Frederick Bean "TexAvery (February 26, 1908 – August 26, 1980) creator
  • Robert Emerson "BobClampett (May 8, 1913 – May 2, 1984)creator
  • Melvin Jerome "MelBlanc (May 30, 1908 – July 10, 1989) voiced by
  • Dee Bradley Baker (born August 31, 1962) 
  • Charles Martin "ChuckJones (September 21, 1912 – February 22, 2002)  
  • Isadore "Friz" Freleng (August 21, 1906[2] – May 26, 1995)
So as I "wright", it's May 30th ... here in Canada that is... Mel Blanc's birthday.   And note the August additions to the cluster in my previous post:
  • August ... 16 (x4 ), 17 , 18 , 19(x3), 20, 21(x3), 22, 23(x2), 24, 25(x2), 26 (x2), 27, 28, 29, _, 31(x2)/Date Sequence" pattern-cluster
And the cryptic key phrase is "is a door for her clamp/clam-pet dee/four/for chuck young friz baker bob".  It is cryptic, butt if you study the language it make perfect sense.
