Bunky

Posted by R. Berg on June 22, 2001

What was the origin of "Is that your problem, Bunky?" I have a fuzzy memory of a recorded comedy routine: a creaky male voice, possibly with music, delivering a sort of pep talk that sounded like a parody of sales pitches for home remedies. Was this a radio or TV routine? Name of performer? A search on Google reveals only that many people say "Is that your problem, Bunky (sometimes Binky)?" when posting on bulletin boards, especially the ones about making your computer behave.
