Charlie Daniels


Charlie Daniels was a well known country music singer-songwriter. The Devil Went Down to Georgia (think Tenacious D’s Tribute, but with less jokes) was a worldwide smash hit in the 1970s, reaching the top 20 in the UK charts and third in the US Hot 100. “I don’t know where the idea came from” said Daniels, but we suspect the many hundreds of Devils Bet folklore tales might have had a hand. Outside of music, in which he wrote some very good songs, he was vocal about his politics and opinions, which included disagreeing with evolution, comparing abortion legislation to Auschwitz, and suggesting the feeding of rapists to wild alligators. Daniels survived cancer, heart problems and snowmobiles in his life, but he finally met his end, dying of a stroke after spending all day raging at Democrat over Benghazi on Twitter. Yes, in 2020. He also timed his scheduled tweets to release the video of him singing “I’m Alive”, an hour after the first obits appeared. This makes it the second dodgy supporter of Jimmy Carter to die in as many months, after masked wrestling villain and real life rapist Mr Wrestling II died. Although it can be safely argued that, no matter the flaws and positives of the man, few things are as heinous as his above plans to poison innocent alligators…

He was a unique hit for Weird with a Beard. The jokes just write themselves…
