We don't want to hurt your feelings
But you're a dor-r-r-r-k!

  I used to have a bootleg audience tape of Luigi & the Wise Guys that sounds like it was originally done like the Dangerous Kitchen (speech-sang). It segued into Truck Driver Divorce which was done the same way...Frank sort of half singing and the band making noises to follow him. I hope someday these prototype versions get released cause they are much funnier. On the tape I heard, when Zappa is a couple of verses into You Look Like a Dork, an irate audience member is clearly heard to exclaim "I'M GOING HOME!!!
