Like a Complete Unknown



So how does it feel, Bob
To be on your own
With no direction home
Like a complete unknown?

Oh, dear. Bob Dylan, who is like the fifth member of our household, was questioned by a New Jersey cop last month after acting suspiciously and looking scruffy in the seaside town of Long Branch.

The 24-year-old officer apparently was not too familar with Dylan's catalogue of work. When she asked what he was doing there, alone and palely loitering, Dylan stated, "I'm on tour". Well, that didn't wash with the young officer who later said, "Now, I've seen pictures of Bob Dylan from a long time ago and he didn't look like Bob Dylan to me at all."

Personally, I don't see what she's getting at (insert winky face here), but to be on the safe side, Paul McCartney should start carrying before and after pictures in his wallet in case he gets busted for jaywalking.

Well hey now, should famous people be allowed to flout our jayloitering laws at will?

Ahem.

Wasn't that a wonderful story? Poor Bob - "acting suspiciously and looking scruffy" indeed. So what else is new?
