"It's a Blimp It's a blimp...Look Frank it's a blimp"


Is that a reference to something?


Yah, the Goodyear Blimp. See, us young 'uns know more than you think. :P

The blimp reference is a Zappa reference, from (I *think*) Penguins in Bondage?

I'm telling you, whenever a Goodyear blimp would pass by, people used to say "its the blimp!" Shelly may also be right though.

I'm leaning towards the Zappa reference right now, seeing as he says Frank

Hmm... Captain Beefheart song "The Blimp"

Sounds like something he did with Zappa... I believe they toured together?

I must confess, I remember reading *something* about the reference on the NG when the album first came out, but couldn't remember what specifically, and that post is gone on the NG, and I don't know how to find an archive of the posts.. so I did a little leg work.
