* "Rhymin' Man" from the album ''Music/BroadwayTheHardWay'' is a very hilarious TakeThat at politician Jesse Jackson, especially since a lot of the rhymes are punctuated with snippets from appropriate pieces of music. -> Harrison made him a clown ("Entrance of the Gladiators" plays) over there near Hymie-Town! ("Havah Negilah" plays)

* The monologue at the start of "Cheepnis" from ''Music/RoxyAndElsewhere'', where he sings the praises of SoBadItsGood movies in general, and ''Film/ItConqueredTheWorld'' inparticular. Doubly funny for [[MysteryScienceTheater3000 MSTies]]

** The whole song is undoubtedly one of the funniest things Zappa ever wrote, but the version on ''Lšther'' has a bonus crowning moment; during a brief pause in the song, a guy in the audience shouts "Fuck you, Zappa!" Without missing a beat, Zappa shouts back "And fuck you too, buddy, you know what I mean? Fuck you very much!"
