Not only was Will Rogers funny, but he was a very talented man. If you read some of his quotes, you'll find that he considered the government fair game for his many barbs and snide comments! A man after our own hearts, that's for sure!
Will Rogers 1879-1935
Born William Peen Adair Rogers, a Cherokee-Cowboy, “Will” became best known as an actor, a Vaudvillian, a philanthropist, a social commentator, a comedian, and a presidential candidate. Known as Okalahoma’s favorite son, Rogers was born to a well respected Native American Territory family and learned to ride horses and use a lasso/lariat so well that he was listed in the Guiness Book of World Records for throwing three ropes at once—one around the neck of a horse, another around the rider, and a third around all four legs of the horse. He ultimately traveled around the world several times, made 71 films (50 silent and 21 “talkies”), wrote more than 4,000 nationally-syndicated newspaper columns, and became a world-famous figure. He died in a plane crash in 1935.
I'm just guessing here, but I suspect that if he were alive, ol' Will would have a ball with everything going on today in the world of politics! What do ya think?
Let's have our coffee inside this morning. I have some Chocolate Fudge Pie that I'll share!
