What verb do these four names have in common?



If you get stumped on Tina, don't worry. It's a lesser known reference, and if you have a solution for the other three names, then Tina will probably fit in!

Danny and Roger are both first names of celebrities.

Danny is the pseudonym of a Lebanese-American actor.

Roger was in an English rock band.

Copenhagen is a brand name.

The all have the verb spit in common

Copenhagen is a smokeless tobacco brand which is not smoked but chewed and spat. It is also known as spit tobacco.

Danny Thomas is an actor and is well known for the 'Spit take'.

The Bassist Roger Waters of Pink floyd was known to spit on a fan in Montreal 1977.

Tina is a pet Llama in Napoleon Dynamite 2004 and they are known to spit.

Partial Answer

Perhaps it is:


Copenhagen is a type of smokeless tobacco

Danny Thomas is Lebanese-American actor famous for (among other things) founding St. Jude's Hospital which is known for fighting cancer--which is sometimes thought to be caused by smoking

Roger Daltrey is an English rock musician famous for his allergy to smoke.

My biggest problem, however, is that I don't have the faintest idea how Tina fits into this, hence why this is a partial answer.
