AGITTARIUS [16-18 / (-30º)-30º] is one of the constellations in the "One Size Fits All" (1975) "universe"; it has the following stars: "Ernie", "Novi", "Chunky", "Al Nozzle", and "Fiscal". AGITTARIUS is a pun on Sagittarius, one of the 13 constellations of the Zodiac.

"Chunky" (Ilene Rappaport a.k.a. Lauren Wood) contributed to "The Grand Wazoo" (1972). Once upon a time, she played in a group called Chunky, Novi & Ernie, "Novi" being Novi Novog, a cousin to Chunky, and Ernie being Ernie Eremita. Novi rehearsed with FZ in the summer of '75, but she never toured with him.

The star "Ernie" could easily be mistaken for Ernie Watts (the original Cletus Awreetus-Awrightus, Funky Emperor and way-hep Grand Wazoo megaphonist and tenor sax player).
