  • This song is about a campaign slogan Richard Nixon used. Flans found its ambiguity to be interesting.
  • The version of this song on the John Flansburgh's Mono Puff EP is exactly the same as this one, except without the lovely guitar intro.
  • In 2010, TMBG posted a slideshow video for this song on YouTube, using images of President Nixon bowling and giving his signature double-victory gesture.
  • The description of the music video is a reference to Chicken And Ice Cream, roughly translating to "To Mono Puff's friends in Japan. One of these days chicken ice cream will exist!"
