Bob Dylan? Never heard of ya

I try not to roll on Shabbos. But being the house goy, I was asked by the VideoJew for this one favor.

The impetus is a story about Bob Dylan, who recently was stopped by cops along the Jersey coast who were so culturally clueless that they had no idea who they were hassling:

“What is your name, sir?” the officer asked.

“Bob Dylan,” Dylan said.

“OK, what are you doing here?” the officer asked.

“I’m on tour,” the singer replied.

A second officer, also in his 20s, responded to assist the first officer. He, too, apparently was unfamiliar with Dylan, Woolley said.

The officers asked Dylan for identification. The singer of such classics as “Like a Rolling Stone” and “Blowin’ in the Wind” said that he didn’t have any ID with him, that he was just walking around looking at houses to pass some time before that night’s show.

The officers asked Dylan, 68, to accompany them back to the Ocean Place Resort and Spa, where the performers were staying. Once there, tour staff vouched for Dylan.

The officers thanked him for his cooperation.

“He couldn’t have been any nicer to them,” Woolley added.

What a mensch. P.S., Bob, you look great in gold.
