Bobby? Is That YOU?

I walking through a department store here in Frankfurt yesterday looking for a linen shirt when I heard a familiar voice singing these lyrics:
Oh God I am the American dream
But now I smell like Vaseline
An' I'm a miserable sonofabitch
Am I a boy or a lady... I don't know which
After a moment of shock and disbelief, I realized that yes, one of Frank Zappa's most well-known irreverent songs, "Bobby Brown Goes Down", was playing for all shoppers to, umm, enjoy. And no one seemed to mind. Indeed, nothing short of incredible. If only they knew...

I'll bet they DO know. And maybe that's the best part.
