Usage Examples English
  • Comedian Jack Benny mentions Sorano in a running gag on both the radio and television versions of "The Jack Benny Program", in which Jack has written a song entitled “When You Say 'I Beg Your Pardon,' Then I’ll Come Back to You.” In the gag, each time Jack reaches the lyric “when the swallows at Sorano return to Capistrano,” the song is interrupted by a cast member or guest star questioning how a swallow could possibly fly all the way from Italy to California.
