It would appear that hiding out in treetops and shouting out rude names didn't quite work out.

Moribund the Burgermeister still on the run?

This is all an evil plot orchestrated by Phil Collins.

I suspect they've now shown him around their fruit cage.

/I was sure that's what the song said at the time.  There were no Googles

FTA:
"José Antonio Yépez, better-known as El Marro - or The Sledgehammer - was one of the most wanted men in the country."

Kill as many people as you want. Sell all the drugs. You never mess with oil.

"Mexican police had been closing in on him in recent months and had taken his mother and sister into custody." as hostages. They were later released.
FTFE.

Again, never mess with the oil.

He thought he could escape by climbing up on Solsbury Hill?
 
2020-08-03 6:18:33 AM  
 My monkey said he would never be caught. Boy was he shocked at the news.

My childhood buddy's mom dated him many moons ago.

They want to see him lead a normal life.
 
2020-08-03 6:33:32 AM  
I have been following this story for a while. While the article say his mother and (sister?) were arrested, I believe they were released due to lack of evidence, whatever that means. I would hate to be the judge trying this case.

She wasn't an unattractive lady.

Is he from a such a small town that they use small words?
 
2020-08-03 7:01:30 AM  
Hunh. He's gotten much smaller than the last time I saw a picture of him.

And younger.

And hispanic.

I guess you -can- reinvent yourself.

Him?  He's just a lawnmower.

You can tell him by the way he walks.

Extremely uncool story: I was of arthritic age before I realized that the song was about his err...sexual performance.

I had recently come to America when the song was popular and had just learned about the concept of a pinch hitter. There was some man that hit a home run and everyone said he hit that out of the park, how he was like a sledgehammer. I assumed the song was about those kind of big hitters. The guys you call on when you want a home run in a baseball sense. And thst Gabriel was saying he was one of them. The song was too innocent sounding for me and too popular for me, a person from a very different kind of society to have even contemplated something else.

A teenager explained it to me finally. It was very embarassing.

There's a place where he belongs.
