I always thought "Po-Jama People" was pretty freaking funny, but not necessarily the funniest FZ tune.

Then I married a Thai woman, and found out that the Thai slang word for pussy is "hoi." So every time I hear ol' Frank singing "Hoi hoi hoi" (or Hoy hoy hoy, if you go by the spelling in the liner notes), it's like he's going, "Pussy, pussy, pussy." So yeah, Po-Jama People is now officially the funniest one for me.

I highly doubt if Frank knew that it was a real (foreign) word, but I can't help thinking he would have LOVED that little factoid and found it hilarious.

same with bamboozled by love

weirdly, I'm finding baby take your teeth out amusing.
I'm wondering if the person requesting said teeth to be removed is 'bald-headed john'?

I actually like "Howard Roark's" vocal performance of "Bamboozled By Love" from the Torture DVD. "Baby, Take Your Teeth Out" is just funny period. I can agree with the "Jumbo" comments, although I don't skip any tracks when I listen to Zappa. I don't find anything wrong with skipping tracks, if that's what floats your boat. I just don't because it doesn't bother me that much. I even listen to "Valley Girl" when I play Ship Arriving.

Recorded, for posterity, on Frank's concert "Rhein-Main-Halle, Wiesbaden, Germany 1979 03 27 - Early show", Frank explained the song because "it" had happened again, the previous evening, on an elevator.
"It" being the way Denny, when he's in a bar, seems to always attract women who's heads are too large for their body. NOT fat women! Regular sized women with large very heads, who want to put that head between his legs."
