Every Schmuck Have A Toaster

I'm working late tonight, and Friday nights are "Request Nights" on the classical radio station, so I put in my request every time I'm working late. I called up, waited on hold for about five minutes, and then the guy picked back up.

"WBJC. What is your request?"
"I have a request, but for the life of me, I can't pronounce it."
"Oh, don't worry. I get those all the time. Just do your best and I'll try to figure it out."
"OK. It's something like 'Every Schmuck Have A Toaster.' It's the theme music to 2001: A Space Odyssey."
"'Every Schmuck Have A Toaster.' I like that one. Well, it's actually called 'Also Sprach Zarathustra,' and it's by Strauss. That's not the worst pronunciation I've heard, though."
"Oh?"
"A woman went into a music store and said, "Don't laugh at me. I heard this on the radio. I'm looking for "I'm Inclined To Knock Mozart."'"
*chuckle*
"Don't worry, though. I'm the only one who really needs to know how to pronounce the song names."
"So, I can get by with 'Every Schmuck Have A Toaster,' hunh?"
*laughs* "Thanks for calling."
