GUEST,josepp BS: Lying about military service (46) RE: BS: Lying about military service 06 Jun 12


Once I was busking on a corner when these two guys come up to me. one had a guitar case. His buddy tells that this guy was Dickie Betts of the Allman Bros. I didn't believe it but then I hadn't seen a picture of Betts in a long time but I remembered him as being movie star handsome and this guy sure wasn't. He played guitar alright, sang alright but he sure didn't sound like Dickie Betts. In fact, he didn't have a Southern accent at all! So I played "Melissa" and he didn't even know the chords!!! How do these two yokels think they're fooling?? Finally, I left to go to a CD release party down the block that I got invited to. When I got there, I pulled out my cell phone a pulled up a photo of Dickie Betts online. Not even in the neighborhood if the hood was size of the continental shelf.

After the party broke up, I was on my way back to my car and I passed that corner. There was a long line of people lined up waiting to get their photos taken with Dickie Betts. His guitar case was absolutely brimming with cash. In four hours on that same corner earlier that day I made one lousy stinkin' dollar. They must have had at least $200. I just laughed and kept walking. I'd like to see these dumb people the next morning emailing the photos of themselves standing with this guy saying, "That's me and Dickie Betts! He was in Royal Oak last night!" And somebody sends back a photo of the real Dickie Betts saying, "I don't think so."
