A Few Random Frebergian Thoughts

Stan Freberg here with a few random thoughts. For example, with the Middle East in the news lately, I hear a lot about the West Bank. Is that the bank where Yassir Arafat keeps his money--the West Bank? Be right back. [:60 SPOT BREAK]

Freberg here with a few odd news items and more Frebergian thoughts.

Beijing, China - It turns out that a remote Asian village worships the singer, Eddie Fisher! The most popular male name for newborn children in remote Nepal village is "Eddie Fisher," pop singer and one of many husbands of Liz Taylor. Anyhow, Fisher remains a superstar in that Asian country, according to a Chinese university study. Photographs of Eddie Fisher are on the walls of huts in the most remote areas, said a researcher. What I want to know is, did Eddie send them 8x10 glossies, or did they just cut the pictures out of old supermarket tabloids? Go figure.

I always thought "Engelbert Humperdinck" would have been the most popular children's name in that Asian village. But the Asians in the village of Nepal should be happy; I just read that Eddie Fisher is recording a new CD with some symphony orchestra.

Speaking of singers, it occured to me that the Pope's name is half of the Beatles: John Paul. What are the chances of having a Pope someday named "George Ringo"? Umm, I guess about one in 500 billion. Meanwhile, we have two of the Beatles in Pope John Paul. Well, that's a start.
