by Amanda Flinner

All this time we thought Jonathan Goldsmith, the guy from the memeworthy Dos Equis beer ad, was "The Most Interesting Man in the World," when the title should've gone to Jimmy Buffett. The tropical troubadour has been making music - and, at times, trouble - for decades. The "Margaritaville" singer has made headlines a number of times for his misadventures, whether he's crashing his seaplane, befuddling French authorities, angering referees, or surfing in a hurricane. So it's about time he got his own Fact or Fiction. Let's see how well you know Jimmy Buffett.
