ALL YOU LADIES OUT THERE IN RADIOLAND, YOU HAVE HELD YOUR BREATH SO PATIENTLY FOR ALMOST A MONTH, BUT THE TIME IS FINALLY HERE…………………MR APRIL, HE HAS ARRIVED, AND HE IS HOTTER THAN EVER. 

HOPEFULLY HIS PRESENCE IN WATERS IN THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER WILL STAY THE FLOOD OF 2011. NO LEVEES OR ANIMALS WERE HURT IN THE SHOOTING OF THIS VIDEO EXTRAVAGANZA, EXCEPT FOR THE SLIGHT GRAZING OF ONE FERAL, COULD-ROOT-UP-THE-LEVEE WILD BOAR. EVEN HE DID NOT DIE, AT BEST HE WAS GRAZED, AND HE SWAM OFF INTO THE LAND OF BACON AND HONEY!

BOYS AND GIRLS, AS ALWAYS NOTHING FROM THE DELTA BOHEMIAN IS SCRIPTED, SO DON’T TRY THIS AT HOME! YO MOMMA JUST WON’T UNDERSTAND!!! 🙄

WATCH the VIDEO!

  1. Mr. April is by far my favorite of all the monthly Mr.whoever!!! Billy, I always knew you had in ya to spit out some rap. Theme song for Mr.April is dead on. I couldn’t help but laugh out load the whole time. Mississippi kind of had that guligan’s island vibe. if we don’t watch it now, clarksdale will become, “”
    Ya know….Mr.April looks like he’s gettin’ his buff on. No…not buffin’ his wood. Get your head out of the there. If I ever need someone to ever come remove an alligator from my home, I’ll make sure to call on Mr. April. Maybe putting some florescent duct tape on that walking stick may help. Spazzzz them gators out with some fast moving, flying, neon sticks.

    • Love me some Chastodon! We had a ball doing it! But, the sad thing is we didn’t do it! It was just another day in the life of the Delta Bohemians, and Magical Madge worked her voodoo piecing it all together!

  2. Congratulations, your Livin’ the High Life!

  4. I can always count on ya’ll making me smile! Thanks for putting yourself out there!

  5. Glad y’all enjoyed Mr. April!!!! (Chastadon–your favorite so far??!!! WOW) We may have some follow-up video on this subject–with Mr. April being whisked away in the rapidly moving currents. Quite frightening, actually. The river is swelling in unprecedented ways and we are about to witness a historical event. Let us all pray the good Lord will protect our man-made levees to hold the 3rd largest watershed in the world as it rises to crests of heights not seen since 1927.

    My voice, Laurie?!?!! 😎

    With encouraging words like yours, Ute, it gives us motivation to continue. Thanks for being a DB and for subscribing! sweet

    Billy,

    Somehow I knew you had to be a Mollydooker (AUSSIE for left hander). Keep on livin’ the High Life!

    Nice AR!

  7. Mr. April is a crazy man. I would never get in the Mississippi river with that amount of current.

  8. David, you are wise to feel that way. Poor William can’t help “hisself” in certain situations. It is part of why I love him. He WANTED to jump into that turbulent water at the beginning of the video but was highly advised against doing so! Thankfully, he listened.

    Have you seen Mr. April REDUX in May? It shows him diving into this current of water spilling into this field. Oh My Goodness.
