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

Leapin' Leopard Skin Hats!

Stan Freberg here. Mr. Mobutu, Zaire's deposed President, is never seen without his leopard hat. Says it brings him luck. Since he had to make a hasty retreat from his throne, maybe he oughta switch to zebra. Be right back. [:60 SPOT BREAK]

Freberg here. Jayne Mansfield wore a leopard bikini. Since most leopards are now endangered, today she'd probably wear a fake one. But the ex-president of Zaire, Mr. Mobutu, now in exile, wears a real leopard hat. Lately I've seen him in pictures sporting a matching leopard sport coat as well.

On my CBS Radio series, I wondered if Little Orphan Annie had just one red dress and rinsed it out at night, or had many identical red dresses. So with Mr. Mobutu.

Does he have but one leopard hat and jacket, and his aide rushed it to a Zaire dry cleaner once a week, or does he have a whole wardrobe of leopard hats and jackets?

In case you're picking me up off Armed Forces Radio, Mr. Mobutu, could you let me know?
