Q: Where did the Rolling Stones get their name?
A: The band took their name from a Muddy Waters tune called “Rolling Stone Blues.”

The one time I feel pretty
Is when I’m pretty sure
That one day I’ll be selling
In all the local stores.

To critics everywhere
And all poetic fans:
My naked soul I bare…
And I thank you in advance.
