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

The Susan B. Anthony Dollar Returns? Well...

Stan Freberg here. I can't believe it! After the Susan B. Anthony silver dollar bombed a while back, how can the Treasury Department claim they're about to put out a new version, possibly with some other woman's face on it? Be right back. [:60 SPOT BREAK]

Freberg here. Congress has ordered a new gold-colored $1 coin, to replace the ill-fated Susan B. Anthony silver dollar, which died at the box office...uh, bank office.

Sorry, Susan. You might've had impressive legs, but your coin didn't. People kept confusing it with a 50 cent piece.

Being gold-colored may help. Treasury says they haven't decided on which woman's face; Eleanor Roosevelt maybe.

You think Hillary Clinton is telling Bill, "Put my name in!" And I can hear Barbra Streisand now: "Forget them, how 'bout me? Look at this profile!"

Sorry, Barbra--the person on the coin can't be living. But you have got a great profile.
