A friend emailed this, says it's in the new Rolling Stone. Test your Beach Boys knowledge (this friend and I were once in a band that covered this tune, if you must know, though I sang it about an octave lower than the BBs):
Match the character in the Beach Boys' "Sloop John B." with his maritime mishap:
A. First Mate
1. Had his trunk broken into
2. Got drunk
3. Arrested the first mate
4. Caught a case of the "fits"
(But they left out my favorite line, a touching culinary detail. For a bonus, which one of the above "ate up all of my corn"?)
