STU/ There's plenty material here for on-going joke-exchange.....to respond specifically:
The Davey Crockett one eludes me --- I'll do the Net and see if I can "get it" -- don't waste yr time tryin' to explain(unless it's real quick and easy).
Yes,we're talkin' the William Burroughs origin of the name Steely Dan (or Dildo Dan,as you don't much like Big Don).
Donald Fey gen - very good,STU

Your brother may have written some music for Frasier/Becker but I think a script submission is in order here....
