Hilarious! Even funnier for those of us who lived through the days of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and Ravi Shankar.

What does vi modne mean?

Judy, the yogi's name is a mashup of "mashugana" which is Yiddish for "silly" or "nonsense." "Vi modne" is Yiddish for "How funny."

Bill Dana was one of the unsung comics of the 1960's. That's him on the right on the album cover holding the sitar. He played a character named Jose Jiminez, the Reluctant Astronaut.

"My name...... Jose Jiminez!" It looks like Bill is having a bit of trouble playing the sitar.
