[quote author=My_name_is_Fritz link=board=faq;num=1110255558;start=60#70 date=03/24/05 at 13:14:29]What does the cat say on the barking pumpkin records label ? Is it chinese ? Is it japanese ? Does it make any sense ? Or what ?<br><br>I don't know the answer. So please tell me nothing but the truth.<br>[/quote]<br><br>Here's FZ's reply to the very same question posed by Dr John Scialli <br><br>
Quote:
June 16, 1981<br>     <br>     Dear John:<br>     <br>     In becoming a doctor, you probably spent too much time learning to<br>     read Latin, and that is why you can't understand what the cat is<br>     saying. Medical professors in our country would probably be more<br>     advanced if they spent more time reading Chinese and taking<br>     advantage of some of the things the Chinese have learned in the last<br>     three thousand years in the art of healing...but never mind.<br>     <br>     I believe the cat is merely saying, ``radio'' and the cat's name is<br>     not ``Mao''; as a matter of fact, I haven't thought of a name for her<br>     yet but I suppose ``Wanda'' would be okay.<br>     <br>     Obviously you must be doing your job really well. There probably<br>     aren't any sick people in your area - you must have cured them all,<br>     otherwise you wouldn't have any spare time to write me a letter.<br>     Keep up the good work.<br>     <br>     Yours truly,<br>     <br>     Frank Zappa<br>
