"crab-grass baby" is a cipher for Capgras Syndrome, a mental delusion diagnosed in modern psychiatry. The chronic, systematic delusion diagnosed by Capgras has to do with misrecognition - where a middle-aged woman suddenly announces that the husband she's been living with for twenty years has been replaced by a "double".

{did someone say "over-educated shithead"? :wink: }

I went with He's So Gay, but I really like the textures on Crab Grass too...

I had this album before the Zoot Allures album, by the way, so "Artificial Rhonda" was my only familiarity with the "Ms Pinky" theme for several years. I still sing "A-R-T-I, F-I-C, I cry, A-L, don't be shy, Artificial Rhonda with the plastic pie" when singing along with the original sometimes.

The Crab-Grass Baby is a VERY close second though.
