Cops fail to recognize BOB DYLAN
Recognize this fella staring you down? That man is named Robert Allen Zimmerman, better known as Bob Dylan. Bob Dylan wrote songs like "Like a Rolling Stone" and "Desolation Row". He's a musical legend. Bob was on tour and staying in the New Jersey seaside resort town of Long Branch. Bob decided to take a stroll through the Latin section of the town, as he normally does, because well, he's Bob Dylan and the man can do whatever he wants (Well, if the world was owned by Rolling Stone magazine, then it would totally happen, but that's for another story). So the people naturally get suspicious of an old Jewish man wandering around their neighborhood, probably dressed like a grifter from the Old Wild West. They called the cops on him, and when the cops came, the two young cops failed to recognize the legend.
God dammit New Jersey, stop listening to Bon Jovi. I can only assume that's what the two cops listen to regularly. Bruce Springsteen moves us so far, but Bon Jovi pulls us back. This tomfoolerly extends to not recognizing genuine artists like Bob Dylan. A legend. He's a LEGEND.
