Similar Sounding Names Too Confusing

Stan Freberg here. I'm still getting people confused. I'm the guy who confused Salmon Rushdie with "salmon grilled." Now I'm getting mixed up again with all these people who have similar names. Be right back. [:60 SPOT BREAK]

Freberg again. People with three names tend to confuse me. I'm always mixing up actors Mary Ann Mobley, Mary Stuart Masterson and Mary Tyler Moore.

Also, what's the difference between Sarah Jessica Parker and Jameson Parker? I think Sarah Jessica Parker definitely has better legs. And have you ever confused the Princes? The "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air," the Crown Prince of England, and the weird rock star who formerly went by the name of "Prince"? Three different "Princes." See what I mean? Even Prince, the rock star, isn't sure what we should call him. It's mind boggling.

I frequently mix up Alec Baldwin, Billy Baldwin and Stephen Baldwin. And I'm always confusing the three Lees: Jamie Lee Curtis, Kathie Lee Gifford, and Jennifer Jason Leigh.

"Tom would be perfect for this." Oh? Tom Hanks? Tom Cruise? Tom Berenger?

"By the way, Stone called you." Really? Oliver Stone? Sharon Stone? "No, Stone Phillips." Hmm.

"Mr. Freberg, Dole wants you to do some commercials." Really? Dole!

"Yeah. They want to know do you want to work on slices or chunks."
