Grease it down
Here come that crazy
Screamin' sound...

"Hi-ho Silver!"
Thank you, Masked Man!"
"Hi-ho Silver!"
From: (Stu Mark)
  to be specific - the Hiyo Silver, (and 'thank you masked man') were specific to the Lenny Bruce bit, which was very specifically about the masked man being experimental in his sexuality... very funny bit...

Ok: everybody!
Hi-ho Silver!"
From: (Charles Ulrich)
  Scott Thunes throws in a snatch of Rossini's "William Tell Overture", which was the theme music for The Lone Ranger
From: (Biffyshrew)
  ... and it's got to be one of the funniest moments in the entire FZ canon...
  And here Frank himself
  "We had a lot of laughs. For example, one night in Seattle, in the middle of the show, (guitarist) Ike Willis started to do an imitation of Lone Ranger, blurting out, 'Hi, ho, Silver!'. I still don't know why it happened, but I cracked up every time he did it. It must have been road fatigue. He'd keep yelling in the most inappropriate places. The whole show was riddled with bad Lone Ranger jokes and me not being able to sing the right words. I enjoed that night."
Pulse! August 1993, p.50-52
