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

What's The Big Deal About Rocks?

Stan Freberg here. Have you ever seen a bunch of scientists as excited as the guys at JPL in Pasadena, since the rover landed on Mars? And what they're all so excited about [:60 SPOT BREAK]

Freberg again. Every so often the TV news will cut to the Jet Propulsion Lab again, and once again they're cheering. I understand their initial excitement when the rover landed, but since then, they're mostly cheering some rock...then a different rock. Am I missing something here?

They've given the rocks cute little names--"Scooby Doo," "Barnacle Bill," "Souffle"; I've already advised them they'd better name a rock for my pal, Ray Bradbury. But the rock stuff is getting kind of old. What? The rocks are old. Oh, yeah. But there's only so long a bunch of rocks can hold my interest.

Pamela Anderson in her "Baywatch" swimsuit better come out from behind one of those rocks pretty soon. Is that sexist? I hope so.
