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

The Freberg Data Bank

Stan Freberg here with a few little-known facts from the "Freberg Data Bank." First, what is the dot over an "i" called? Give up? It's called a "tittle." Be right back. [:60 SPOT BREAK]

Freberg again with more obscure but true facts. How far does an office chair with casters typically roll in a year? Answer: 8 miles.

Rolling right along here, what do beavers, swans, Canadian geese and wolves all have in common? Give up? Well, unlike many humans, they mate for life.

Next, you could say the Chicago Cubs were the first "organic" baseball team. Why? Because the first stadium organ was at Wrigley Field in Chicago.

And finally, if you piled a billion $1 bills on top of each other, how high would the stack be? Answer: 70 miles high. Oh, yeah, Bill Gates does that sometimes when he's bored.

That's all from the "Freberg Data Bank."
