Mensagem:  "O Lampeao" (Big Lamp) was the nickname of a man named Virgulino. (Just as "The Kid" was the nickname of William Bonney.) "Virgulino e lampeao" [Virgulino is "Big Lamp".] "O seu no-me e' Virgulino a a pelidoe lampeao E lamp'e, lamp'e, lamp'e, lamp'e seu no me'e Virgulino a a pelido'e lampeao". [His name is Virgulino and his nickname Big Lamp. (There appears to be something missing, but I'm guessing that is the text.) It is Lamp, it is Lamp, it is Lamp, Lamp is his name, and his nickname is Big Lamp.] Lindi, I'm not sure why he was called "Big Lamp", but he was not the kind of man that anyone would get away with calling a derrogatory name. Do you recall the scene with Baby Face Nelson in "O Brother, Where Art Thou?"? Well, O Lampeao was not known for taking lip from anyone.
