Perhaps there's a folk-musician template personality out there. I laughed so much when I first heard this song! Haven't laughed so much since, except when watching Bienvenue chez les ch'is and Dīner de cons. But the personality - the description reminds me of James Clarence Mangan, who normally wore green sunglasses and a huge swinging overcoat and carried four umbrellas. Obviously a kind of cultural reincarnation is in place here.
