Although I was a big shocked by what he said in the fade out, the word is in the Bible, so I reckon it's still family-friendly.

I've been listening to this song a lot and I've been wondering, what does "Prince Albert in a can" mean? I've never understood that. :huh:

Prince Albert in a can was a type of cigarette (?) in a can, that was around in the early days of the telephone. Mainly the phone calls would be like:

"Hello, do you have Prince Albert in a can?"

"Yes"

"Well, you better let him out!"

jumping back to the ending bit with the pain in the a** thing, according to wikipedia, the whole thing he said was:Bet you think it’s funny when you’re driving folks right up the wall, but you’re just one pain in the a**.
the whistles go woooo-bubb rubb

Actually, Prince Albert was a brand of pipe tobacco, but, yeah, old, old joke.
4 words that Al said to me that blew me away:

"How's Problem Child doing?" - 7/12/11

So awesome!

Actually the Bible is far from being "family friendly."

Hearing Al say "ass" shouldn't be that big of a shock. I mean, look at it this way - how many songs have we heard from Al? And how many times did he swear?? We got...

* One "sh**" in 'Dead Car Battery Blues', which wasn't even released to begin with
* One "ass" in 'Phony Calls'
* One "bastard" in 'Don't Download This Song'

THREE TIMES in 30+ years! Do you know how RARE that is among comedians today?!
Steve's mixes, lookie!
