    Sorry guys. The extent of my knowledge of "Wavy Gravy" is from looking at the web site linked by RK. Never heard of him, maybe because I didn't live in the country during the 60's, and was too busy supporting myself and my family during the 70's.

    Wavy Gravy certainly marches to the beat of a different drum, but that's not necessarily bad. Wasn't he one of the guys from The Hog Farm that busted his butt feeding kids at Woodstock?
    I know enough, I just can't think of most of it.

    you may want to tone that down until you know the man. as a child, he lived near albert einstein in princeton and took neighborhood walks with him as albert had a fondness for the vivacious kid. he is a quintessential hippie, but with a huge heart. he developed a tye-dye clown persona thinking he was safer delivering his message of peace and love and all that, and in the long run segued into developing some impressive accomplishments with world poverty as it affects children. here is one effort he founded:

    so, he is not such a bad guy afterall.


    hey - you gotta be SOMEBODY if ben and jerry's names a flavor after you, right?

    LMAO.....

    Being called "classless" by the one and only.......I feel privileged!

    I post a funny t-shirt being "pushed" by your man, and I get accused of "pushing an issue"??

    Too much, Dave...too much!

    ps....he does look just like your picture though....you sure that's not you?
