Satiric radio commentary for the 90s from the man who drained Lake Michigan and filled it with hot chocolate!!!

T.M.I.(Too Many Initials)?

(1998 Version)

Stan Freberg here. Is the world getting initial heavy? From PMS to MSG, the mind reels, or TMR. Be right back. [:60 SPOT BREAK]

Freberg here. I hate initials to abbreviate things. When I was in the Army we were initialed to death, from memos from HQ to that old standby in the mess hall, S.O.S., or creamed chipped beef on toast, which I happen to like, by the way. But S.O.S. stood for...Something On a Shingle. The first word wasn't "something." I cleaned it up for radio, ahem...

I guess we can't take time to spell everything out. "AARP" is definitely shorter than "American Association of Retired Persons"; we know "SS" has nothing to do with Nazis now; it means "Social Security." But "CD" could mean either something you put money into at the bank, or a compact disc.

I have to get off the www now and go choose my HMO, so I'd better get outta here p.d.q.
