Various samples and the 'Juan Valdez' Mexican accented live caller, again. Rod Steiger from 'The Loved One' (1965) monologue is heard here and there. We hear manipulated samples from 'Weird Al' Yankovic's 'Fat' in the background (this is reprised later in 'taF' (track 24 of this program).

Mixed songs about 'chicken' are used (part of this portion of the program also appears in NCN's program 'Poultry in Motion').
