Yep, for those of you who didn't know, or are a little slow on the uptake, he was the model for Robinson Crusoe. However, there was no Friday, not even a deflated volleyball named Wilson. Just a bunch of goats and cats, refugees from Spanish ships. Because a man has, you know, needs, however bizarre, he tamed the goats and cats, and spent many nights teaching them how to dance. There is no record of whether or not he made banana-leaf prom dresses for any of the goats, however.
