The Troggs frontman Reg Presley dies at 71

In the mid-70s, The Troggs released an LP called The Troggs Tapes. It contained some rather off-color and some what abusive studio banter between band Presely and the other band members. Most of it involved at word that started with "F."

Not long afterward, a longtime NBC employee retired from the Standards and Practices division. As a send off, the cast of Saturday Night Live performed a sketch that poked fun at the Troggs Tapes. The characters were Medieval Traveling Minstrels, who used the phrases "flogging" and "flogger." The retiring NBC employee loved it.
