Chairman of the Board”

ELAYNE: And now it’s time for my favourite part of the evening – our salute to the Chairman of the Board.

MARTY: I sure hope that’s not b-o-r-e-d.

A possible allusion to the 1979 song, “I’m Bored”, by punk icon Iggy Pop, from his album New Values. The album was well received, but “I’m Bored” only charted in Australia, where it reached a modest #68 in the charts. However, the album was most successful in New Zealand, reaching #18 – the only country where it was in the Top 20.

The song begins:

I’m bored

I’m the chairman of the bored
