My Mission

Robert Sale-Hill’s poem, The True Origin and History of “The Dude” (The New York World, January 14, 1883) introduced the world to the word Dude, and kicked off a full-on Dude craze. A-Dude-a-Day[i] Blog is dedicated to preserving and sharing pics, pieces and poems from the early days of the Dude-craze of 1883. You can read more about the history and origin of the word Dude on my blogpost, "Dudes, Dodos and Fopdoodles" on my other blog, Early Sports 'n' Pop-Culture History Blog.

Dude #13 - Dude Limerick

A Dame who was over particular, 
Seized forcibly by his auricular,
     A self-engrossed dude
     Who appeared to her rude,
And spoiled his correct perpendicular.

Life, Volume 1, Number 13, March 29, 1883, page 155.
