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

Unanswered Questions Of Our Time

Stan Freberg here with a few unanswered questions. For example, now that most young people are wearing tennis shoes and Timberline boots, what will happen to shoeshine men?

Will we have to explain to kids what those three theater seats up in the air with the place to put your feet on were for? "Daddy, what were you s'posed to watch sitting in those seats?" Be back, after this. [:60 SPOT BREAK]

Freberg here with more unasnwered questions. For example, if Forrest Gump really thought that life was like a box of chocolates because you never know what you're gonna get, why didn't he just buy the kind that has a picture on the lid that shows what each chocolate is?

Another question. From time to time, I hear one of those food trucks cruising the neighborhood, announcing to construction workers and everyone else that they have arrived, by playing a musical horn. It goes (Melody of "La Cucaracha"): "Da-da-da-dah-daah, da-da-da-dah-daah..." I wait, but the guy never finishes the phrase! "Da-da-da-da-da-dah-daah..." Never gets to that part. Drives me crazy! Is it that he doesn't know how the rest of the song goes? Naah. What's the story?

Furthermore, the song is "La Cucaracha," which means in Spanish, "The Cockroach"! Wouldn't you think that a guy selling food out of a truck with perhaps less than spic-and-span sanitary conditions would pick a song OTHER than "The Cockroach"?

THERE! I just heard him AGAIN! Has the man not thought this through? What's the story?

I'll be back again soon with more "UNANSWERED QUESTIONS OF OUR TIME!"
