More Confusing Names

Stan Freberg here. As you know, I'm always confusing names and things, like the bill a waiter hands you, the bill on the front of a golf hat, and the Bill who lives in the White House. Be right back. [:60 SPOT BREAK]

Freberg here. I say to somebody, "Michael J. Fox? Oh, yeah, he owns the Fox Studios and the Fox Network." "Umm, no, that's owned by Murdoch." "David Murdoch?" "No, Rupert Murdoch. David Murdoch is a whole different billionaire Murdoch. Among other things, he owns Dole Pineapple."

"What?" I say. "I thought Bob Dole owned Dole Pineapple!" "Ha! No, he wishes! Then he wouldn't have to worry about campaign funds."

"Well, next you'll tell me that Naomi Judd and Naomi Campbell aren't related." "Umm, not that I know of. One is a country singer, the other Naomi is a high-fashion model." "Yeah, but Naomi Campbell is from the Campbell Soup family, though, right?" ""

"WHAT??? Next, you'll tell me that NBC doesn't stand for the 'National Biscuit Company'!" " used to; a few years ago they changed it to 'Nabisco,' so they wouldn't be confused with 'NBC', the broadcasting giant. By the way, that's owned now by General Electric."

"Hunh. Well, whoever he is, he made a very good buy. And I know, I know, 'GM' is owned by a whole different military man, General Motors, right?"

"Umm...let's just forget the whole thing!"
