JOE SWINE: "Ok, swami whatever-your-name-is, we'll be back to this
Christ-consciousness racket in just a minute.". Definitely Joe Pine,
a radio/tv interview show host. An early version of Wally George and
Morton Downey. From {DWARF}.

Kali Yuga: From "TV or Not TV", "Umperor Kali Yuga" is a play on the
Roman Emperor Caligula and the hindu term Kali Yuga. Bongo sez:

Kali Yuga is a hindu term for the age just (thankfully) coming to an
end, in a system that (more or less) defines human spiritual receptivity
as a cyclical function emcompassing multiple thousands of years.

In such a system, Kali Yuga is considered the darkest age, which some
believe bottomed out about 500 or 600 A.D. As we are now supposedly on
the ascendant cusp exiting the age, "watching Kali Yuga pass" is a
nicely poignant pun on the times in which we live.
