Dream Dude: Cab "The Reefer Man" Calloway

Cab Calloway was a stoner, a scatter, and a Christmas Day Capricorn. As if I could resist a dude who nicknamed himself "The Tarzan of Harlem"! I agree with everything Cab Calloway ever said and did. If I ever have a third-born son, I'm going to name him Cab Calloway Jane Faulds.

In good old 1944*, Cab Calloway released an awesome-seeming book entitled The New Cab Calloway's Hepster's Dictionary, and don't that just beat it all?

It's so cool, in my opinion, to call "practicing music" "frisking some whiskers." What's more, clarinets are called "licorice sticks," and trombones are called "slush-pumps"!

I agree with everything Cab Calloway ever said and did.

*The year Ray Davies was born
