Today’s hip Zippy:


Full of hippie slang, from days now gone.

Some references:

1. Jazzbo Collins. From Wikipedia:

Albert Richard “Jazzbo” Collins (born January 4, 1919, Rochester, New York — d. September 30, 1997, Marin County, California) was an American disc jockey, radio personality and recording artist who was briefly the host of NBC television’s Tonight show in 1957.

2. Badges. It starts with We don’t need no stinking badges (in the book and movie The Treasure of the Sierra Madre) and eventually develops into the snowclone:

We don’t need no stinking /stinkin’ /steenkin’ Xs

See the Stinking Badges site, also the “Stinkin’ Up the Place” section (from 10/05) on this site.

3. Maynard G. Krebs. From Wikipedia:

Maynard G. Krebs is the “beatnik” sidekick of the title character in the U.S. television sitcom The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis.

The Krebs character, portrayed by actor Bob Denver, begins as a stereotypical beatnik, with a goatee, “hip” (slang) language, and a generally unkempt, bohemian appearance.

4. majuberized (in the title). At the moment I’m stumped by this one. Suggestions welcome.

    I used to listen to Al Jazzbo Collins on KGO and often heard him majuberize people.


    I don’t need no stinken’ badges….

      Looks like inspired silliness, without any deep meaning.

      The text in this one:

      You’re been operating without being majuberized for many years, and along with you and your royal commandos, I would like to offer the oath this morning and take everybody into the majubas, keeping in mind that once you say these words, you’re entitled to the second-best feeling in the world.
      Raise your left hands, ladies and gentlemen, and repeat after me: I don’t got to show you no stinkin’ badges. [people repeat the oath] You are all hereby majuberized.

  2. Rich Balison Says:

    Majuberization imbued all those who spoke the oath with the quintessential spark of wisdom and creativity. I randomly met Jazzbeaux in the street many years ago and ,surprised that I recognized him, he personally majuberized me on the spot.
