After the legendary musician Eric Clapton. A stud that makes magic with his hands and mouth when with a woman. A true Clapton can make a snobby, stuck-up woman turn into warm butter in mere seconds.
I'm playing hardball tonight, competing against that Clapton over for that woman up at the bar.

Bowing and praising the one and only God Clapton. All Claptonists(people who bow to Clapton) must know most of the songs that mede Clapton famous such as Cocaine, Layla, Crossroads and so on. Claptonist must also praise the perfect god-like guitar known simply as the Fender Stratocaster and anything that is Fender. In the end Clapton will show us the right path when we have to choose in the "crossroad".
"Mom I am gonna go practice Claptonism with my friends because we heard clapton pay and we wanna be his slaves"
