Burp Art Performances by Jade Teta, Produced & Conducted by FZ, UMRK
DS: There was one particular sound I can remember too, which kinda got me off, it sounded like a combination of you, I believe, from the Mothers Of Prevention album, saying the word "bondage", combined with a burp.
FZ: Oh yeah. That was not me. That's my nephew, Jade, and Jade, he has the ability to burp very loud and very long, and he can also burp words. So, when he was here visiting in '87, we had a sampling session with Jade. In fact, he got paid the same as any other musician that comes in here to do samples. I stood him in front of a microphone, and let him do an assortment of burps, and then gave him a list of words and phrases to burp, and some of those were put into the synclavier and that's what ya heard.

The Real Frank Zappa Book and Video From Hell both identify the date of FZ's testimony before the Judicial Proceedings Committee of the Maryland State Senate as February 14, 1986.
However, an article from the Baltimore Sun dated March 19, 1986 (reproduced in the Congress Shall Make No Law... booklet) says that FZ testified "yesterday". So that would have been March 18, 1986.
February 14 was the date that Judith Toth's bill passed the House of Delegates. An article in the Los Angeles Times dated February 16, 1986 states:
The Maryland House of Delegates on Friday passed a bill banning the sale of "obscene" rock music records to minors after hearing one lawmaker call the raunchy lyrics "the worst kind of child abuse we have."
February 14, 1986 was indeed a Friday.
Have you ever heard of the NARAS credo? That's that little— I saw one one time. The one that I saw was written by Stan Freberg. Okay? We were the entertainment at the Grammys in 1967 or '68 in New York. I saw this piece of paper and it said in part that, "These selections are made on artistic merit alone and have nothing to do with unit sales." Right? Sure.
They love it that somebody from Mötley Crüe has got hair out like this and make-up and this stuff, you know, and they show pictures and, "Look at this! Do you want your child to . . . ?", you know. That. They've been doing that since the beginning—They did it with Elvis Presley. You know before that they did it with the fact that a lot of the performers were black. "Do you want your children listening to music by negroes?"
I've been booked for a debate with Mrs. Baker in Seattle on the 29th
Thou Shalt Not Bear False Witness Against Thy Neighbor (on Congress Shall Make No Law...) starts with twelve seconds of Synclavier music. [...] In fact, this whole piece of grout is a snippet from the FTMAMM version of Secular Humanism (0:33-0:45, to be specific).
