I thought, since I was talking to a make believe chimp, people would catch the irony in my voice.
I guess not.
GET OUT!!!!! Bonzo is my friend, he sends us a Christmas banana every year. How dare you question that damn dirty apes existence.
Yeah, and Bonzo texts me a picture of his banana every Saturday night. :roll:

Now I'm really worried.... are you sure that's Bonzo's banana? You do know who his alter-ego is, right?

Can you believe these people think they're actually talking to Jimmy? :roll:
It's good harmless fun.
Speaking for myself, I never said I thought I was actually talking to Jimmy or more specifically that "Jim Buffett" is "the" Jim Buffett. Having said that, much like the children who send their letters to Cinderella and some intern signs a photo and sends it back and the child shows it proudly to their friends, there is no reason to put down people who might just have the hope that maybe it really is him. When I go to the mall in December, the man in the big chair is Santa Claus. I call him Santa. I say "Thank you Santa." That doesn't mean I believe he is Santa just like I don't necessarily believe that it really is Jimmy Buffett. When a person goes to confession, they are talking to a priest with faith that someone else is listening to what they have to say. If people wish to come here and say "thank you" or throw out a request or have something personally meaningful to say in the off chance Jimmy might see or hear about it somehow, what's wrong with that?

I guess nobody, not Jimmy nor anyone in his camp, would ever actually bother with anything that goes on here. Why would they? I suppose that is really pathetic to think that could happen. Nevermind that we know that at least one of the Reefers posts on here occasionally, as recently as this morning.

Oh..... and there's one other reason to maybe just have one iota of faith....



Yes Virginia, there is a Jimmy Buffett...
I would have loved to have been there, if only to see the expression on your face.  I'm sure it was PRICELESS!!!

I had been sent a pretty clear indication online about 5pm that day that it was going to happen. Then a photo of the setlist had leaked to BN around showtime and made it around to several BN'ers in the crowd. Fortunately, I don't have a smartphone, so I wasn't online to see any of it and nobody texted or called to spill the beans, so I was completely surprised when it happened. My buddy had left to go to the bathroom at the encore break and never found his way back. I was in the middle of the lawn all alone. It was pretty blurry because I got kind of teary eyed. How I felt in that moment is so hard to explain. I was overwhelmed. I wish all of the BN people there could have been in one spot to sing along and enjoy the moment together.

Morbid curiosity compels me to ask how you acquired this knowledge.
And BTW, the name should be in UPPER CASE.

It's a possibility. To my knowledge they've never been seen in the same room together.
