The $600 Mud Shark Prelude
(Audience clapping, whistling and yelling)
FZ: I like to tell you something. I'd like to play an encore for you, but we have a Union problem in this house: We have to leave the stage at exactly the time or it's gonny cost another 600 Dollars. For us! We have to pay 600 to play for you! I to say you this: I’ll be happy to pay 600 Dollars to play for you. We’re gonna do an encore now.
FZ: We’d like to dedicate this part of our program to the Union members sitting backstage counting their overtime money.
FZ: And also to the people who make up those kind of rules and keep ’em inflexible so that you can’t really work with the thing, you know what I mean?
