Trivia: "JimmyBuffettology"

  • Jimmy's birthday is December 25 --born in Pascagoula, Mississippi, in 1946. Yes, he shares a birthday with a slightly-more-revered superstar (although Jesus' actual birth date is, in reality unknown -- December 25 is just his recognized birth date.)
  • On a related note: actor W.C. Fields died on Jimmy's birth date, December 25, 1946.
  • Despite earlier speculations, he is actually not related to the tycoon Warren Buffett, although they are friends.
  • Jimmy is also a writer, having written 4 best-selling books: Tales from Margaritaville, Where is Joe Merchant, A Pirate Looks at Fifty, and Swine Not. He is one of the very few writers who have reached #1 in the New York Times bestseller list, in both fiction and non-fiction categories.
  • As for movies, he had cameoed in the movies Repo Man, Congo, Hook, Hoot, and Cobb, and also appeared as himself in FM and Rancho Deluxe.
  • As for TV, he played a re-occuring role in Hawaii 5-O (2010 onward version) as a helicopter pilot named Frank Bama. That was the name of a character in his aforementioned novel, "Where is Joe Merchant?".
  • It has been reported that he was offered a cameo appearance in "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl", but he turned it down.
  • Jimmy is a licensed pilot. He was fortunately not on board on his own plane when it was shot at by Jamaican police in 1996. Police mistakenly thought the plane was carrying drugs. This was the inspiration for Jimmy's song, "Jamaica Mistaica".
  • Jimmy is also known as "Marvin Gardens" and "Freddie Fishsticks".

Smart Parrot:

A magician worked on a cruise ship.

The audience was different each week, so the magician did the same tricks over and over again. There was one problem...

The captain's parrot saw the shows each week and began to understand how the magician did every trick.

Once he understood, he started shouting in the middle of the show "Look, it's not the same hat!" or, "Look, he's hiding the flowers under the table,"
or "Hey, why are all the cards the ace of spades?"

The magician was furious, but couldn't do anything. it was, after all, the captain's parrot.

Then one stormy night, the ship sank.

The magician found himself on a piece of wood in the middle of the sea with, as fate would have it, the parrot.

They stared at each other with hatred, but did not utter a word.

This went on for a day and then another and then another.

Finally on the fourth day, the parrot could not hold back and said, "OK, I give up. Where's the !#&@%!! ship?"
