And then he'd have us "Eat That Question" just in case we were considering Trivial Pursuit. Another instrumental, this one off The Grand Wazoo.

He'd remind us that he REALLY likes monster movies with "Cheepnis" from Roxy and Elsewhere, which culminates with a giant poodle attacking the US. Which is pretty close to Monsters Menace America.

Finally, his favorite game? I can only find one song title identical to a game title, and that's "GOA", from Guitar. Not a bad choice at all.

Frank often provided useful advice:

"Don't go where the huskies go,
And don't you eat that Yellow Snow"

Yellow Snow from Apostrophe (')
or get the single cut from Strictly Commercial
