Hahaha I remember a rumour that Redbone was really Frank Zappa in disguise. I'd forgotten about that one.

I think you're missing the point completely. One of the things a lot of the people have found cool about this forum is learning things about Zappa or related subjects that they didn't know before. So, there could have been some interesting anecdote behind your juxtaposition of Bruce Springsteen and a Pizza, so why not share it? That's one of the things I've enjoyed about this forum, the sharing aspect. And how has he ruined your gag by asking you to explain it? Anybody who got it straight away wouldn't be put off by anyone else asking about it. I just don't get what's gotten you all wound up about this.

All jokes are ruined if they have to be explained.

This is way over generalising, if it's a trivial joke, fair enough, but I've often come across more elaborate jokes that I didn't understand because I lacked the background and being filled in with the background enabled me to appreciate them and friends that have done that for me didn't resent it in any way.

You see, that I agree with, but we're not watching a movie are we, this is the official Zappa fan forum and a lot of people come here for information about Zappa.

Maybe those of you who were all too happy to ruin the fucking joke should put me on your foe list. I don't think I have anything to say to either of you ever again.

If you are contemplating suicide, please don't do it. I don't wish to wind up on CNN as part of a group who sat idly by, and did nothing, as you slowly expired.

Ah you got nothing to worry about. I just gotta remember that there's a reason Zappa fans have a mondo-shit-smearing-all-over-your-face reputation amongst other members of society. But hey it helped. At least I found the foe list, right? :-)

All jokes are ruined if they have to be explained. When you watch a movie and a gag goes by that you don't get, you don't turn to your friend and ask for an explanation. If you do, he's not going to be watching many more comedies with you. You let it go. You just simply didn't get the gag -- and you wait for the next one.
No, I ask! Then hear, "Oh, didn't you see the movie, '_______________________'?" (Fill in the blank.) "No." "Oh, just about everyone else has seen it and that was in reference to a scene from it." "OK, now I know why I didn't get it." No problem! I didn't know, "When you watch a movie and a gag goes by that you don't get, you don't turn to your friend and ask for an explanation. If you do, he's not going to be watching many more comedies with you. You let it go. You just simply didn't get the gag -- and you wait for the next one." was a universally understood etiquette observed by all. And I still don't!

I'll take FZ anytime.

Either way, here's something that struck me: on the left it's BBP aged 5. On the right, it's the ice-cream decoration I got from St Nicholas because it's named like my name.

You're separated at birth... That doesn't guarantee that you get the same hair or that the other guy doesn't turn into an idiot.
