People who talk about "Dylan's sense of humor" can sound as stuffy as people who discuss the same thing about Shakespeare, but the fact remains that "As You Like It" really is pretty funny, and Bob gets a nifty joke off from time to time also. He was in fine form on "Theme Time Radio" this week. Part of what is so good about the show is that he is totally in on the joke-- he's Bob Frickin' Dylan, and he knows it. Bob Dylan knows perfectly well that he sounds like Bob Dylan, so when he does a Sean Connery imitation-- which was spot on-- it's Bob's voice doing that lispy Scottish burr. It was so unexpected it cracked up the engineer, who you could hear laughing in the background.

I'll bet Shakespeare could have done a pretty good Connery too.
