Purpose of this Foolishness
As we celebrate his birth today
Many of us have something to say.
He danced naked on a bar
And drove for a sandwich from afar,
So many cheers to El Guapo with a thunderous hooray.
Happy birthday to a one of the blogosphere’s good guys – the master of Friday Foolishness – El Guapo! For your birthday, I sense you would enjoy this ride.
