'''Shel Silverstein''' (1930-1999) was best known as an author of offbeat children's poetry. He also wrote picture books, songs, song lyrics (most famously "[[Music/JohnnyCash A Boy Named Sue]]", "[[Music/TheIrishRovers The Unicorn]]" and "The Cover of Rolling Stone"), one-act plays and films. Fans of his mainstream work may be rather [[BleachedUnderpants stunned to hear]] that many of his songs are ''very'' adult in tone, and that he personally was a real-life ChickMagnet who lived for several years in the actual [[Magazine/{{Playboy}} Playboy Mansion]]. He died from a heart attack in May 1999 and was buried in a Chicago cemetery.
