    For the younger readers who might not get it.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mel_Torm%C3%A9


    From that Wikipedia article:
    His singing at New York’s Copacabana led a local disc jockey, Fred Robbins, to give him the nickname “The Velvet Fog,” thinking to honor his high tenor and smooth vocal style, but Tormé detested the nickname. (He self-deprecatingly referred to it as “this Velvet Frog voice”.

    Also, Mel was Judge Harry Stone’s favorite entertainer. (As he is Harry Anderson’s in real life.)

    Actually, it’s “I kissed a squirrel and I liked it!” (That’s what I always heard when it played on the radio…)

    That’s it. I couldn’t use a Torme reference because I could never sit and listen to him long enough to come up with any. My appologies to Mel and Harry Anderson.

    Think thats a play on words for “The Velvet Fog” who was singer Mel Torme. Cute though. Rory always makes me laugh

    See my comment (the first comment). Mel himself used that wordplay.

    @calimesajim

    It’s too bad that you are so narrow-minded as to see something like that in this totally non-political strip.
