Thread Name: Bob Dylan: Nobel laureate
Subject: RE: Bob Dylan: Nobel laureate
"Rock and roll legend, Bob Dylan, acknowledged in a recent interview that he has perpetuated an elaborate hoax on the public for more than fifty years. 'I can't sing, half of the time I don't even say real words, I just mumble, and my lyrics make no sense.'...

...Dylan, often referred to as a 'poetic genius,' claims he never knew what people were talking about. 'How profound is "don't want to be a bum, you better chew gum. The pump don't work 'cause the vandals stole the handles?" I just made up simple rhymes. Any child could have done what I did.'...

...'Apparently, Lincoln was wrong. You can fool all of the people, all of the time,' Dylan added."
