By Gosh, who is Cal Bigosh?

The other day I ate at Palomino downtown. After the meal they give you a small card with a saying on it (without any edible part, making it a rather disappointing fortune cookie substitution). The quotation I got was:

There are two keys to life:
1. Don’t tell everyone your secrets.

Cal Bigosh

OK, that’s kind of a cute, clever quotation, but who the heck is Cal Bigosh? Google, Yahoo and Wikipedia have all failed me, with no mention of a Cal or Calvin Bigosh. The Oshkosh B’Gosh history doesn’t mention anyone ever named B’Gosh or Bigosh. Who is this guy? Every other place I’ve found this quotation mentioned has always had it listed as anonymous. Did they just decide to make someone up?
