Lucy the Dog was so busy dilly-dallying with our economic stimulus package yesterday that we completely forgot to give a Happy Birthday salute to Fird “Snooks” Eaglin, Jr.

So tonight we’ll stick 72 candles in a pot of red beans and rice to celebrate. Here’s to 72 more, Snooks. Or at least a decade. No need to get greedy.

Also yesterday, Richie Havens turned 67, Baby Spice turned 32, and Bill Clinton took a nap. Awwwww. He’s so gross when he sleeps. Like a bulbous-nosed, shriveled angel.

  1. “Richie Havens Sings The Beatles & Dylan” is the most disappointing CD I have ever bought. Everybody knows the awesome Richie Havens, rocking out with his unique jangle style at Woodstock — but what you don’t realize is that he sucks at recording great Beatles and Dylan songs. He did the whole thing with like a kiddie synthesizer and no tempo at all. I actually threw the CD out the window of my car I was so disgusted with it.

    So there’s that.
