Hey,I've just re-discoverd this!<br>(from "arf")<br><br>From: GWORSHAM@ix.netcom.com (Gary Worsham) <br><br>  OK, here's the scoop: In issue 3 of Society Pages, the amazing Den Simms, Rob Samler, & Eric Buxton pose the question to Frank. (sorry guys, for excerpting w/o permission, but this is an important question! Also, you guys are behind the times, never having mentioned the alt.fan.frank-zappa thing in your mag. so there)  <br>  Rob asks, "What is a Fembot in a wet t-shirt?"  <br>  FZ replies, "Do you remember the Six Million Dollar Man...?"  <br>  RS: Uh-huh . sure.  <br>  FZ: ... there was an episode where they were being attacked by fembots...these 'Female Robots"...[if] she enters a wet T-shirt contest, what happens?  <br>  DS: Sparks fly.  <br>  RS: So, why did you change the title on the CD?  <br>  FZ: Why, what does it say on the CD?  <br>  :-)))))))))  <br><br> :D

The song is "fembot on a wet t-shirt", on Joe's garage!<br><br>But maybe the intended title was "wet t-shirt nite".

It was 'Wet T-Shirt Night' then became 'Fembot In A Wet T-Shirt,' and on the list of scores on the back of mine for Black Page #2 it says 'Fembot In A Wet T-Shirt Night.' I kid you not.

...and Toad O'line became "One The Bus" - which makes some sense. But it is Mary who is taking part inthe wet t-shirt contest, right? Is she a fembot? No! So why the hell did FZ change that name? (Did he even know about the change, regarding the quote above...?)
