358. Belushi “It’s My Baloney, Man” Bit

January 27, 2012

Q: I was wondering if you can tell me where I can find a clip of an old radio hour bit that we always imitated back in college. I believe it was a Belushi skit involving stoned out college guys living together and one always complaining that the other had raided the fridge and taken his baloney. He was always referring to “it’s my baloney, man”. I’m fairly certain it was from the radio hour series. The “it’s my baloney, man” became a private joke or saying between my college buddies.

I’m also looking for the clip where (I believe it was) Belushi’s Craig Baker character recited his own college drinking cheer, something like “Hey hey… hey hey hey”. This was also a refrain that we mimicked for years.

A: I remember the Craig Baker, character, but not either of those bits. If you, dear reader, know the answer, please post it in a comment.


1) The "baloney" bit was not from the Radio Hour. Maybe you are thinking of Belushi's streaker's discussion in show no. 20? 2) Might be from a couple of Craig Baker bits, hard to say for sure without knowing more about it. Try show no. 45 and/or show no. 50 and see if it's from one of those shows.

I believe it is from a Cheech and Chong bit. Not SNL.

So, "It's my baloney, man" is from Cheech and Chong, but what about the drinking cheer?
