Dylan jokes #1

Richard O Smith, who runs the entertaining Eccentric Oxford walking tours -


- is a long-time Dylan nut, as a well as a long-time semi-pro wag.

He’s just had this joke published in The Independent daily newspaper:

“Times are a-changin': Bob Dylan, having only once previously provided permission for lyric alteration, has finally allowed his famed protest song "Blowin' in the Wind" to be used in an advert for the Co-Op ("Dylan co-operates with TV advert", 28 January).

“How many rows must a man walk down, before he can find the milk?”

Ahem… .
