Happy Birthday, Willie Nelson



On this day in 1933 in Abbot, Texas, singing, songwriting, and joke-telling legend Willie Hugh Nelson was born. Okay, okay, I might be a little generous with the “joke-tellling legend” part, but what the hell—it’s his birthday!

When I was looking up his birthday today, I saw that Willie was born in the same year the United States outlawed weed. Word has it that Willie was so angry about this that upon exiting the womb HE actually slapped the doctor (that’s no bullshit either).

Anyway, happy birthday, Willie, I love you!
