"Blowin' in the Wind" is a song written by Bob Dylan and released on his 1963 album The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan. Although it has been described as a protest song, it poses a series of philosophical questions about peace, war, and freedom without supplying concrete answers.
- All of the Number Guy segments are parodies of "Blowin' in the Wind".
- In a "Land of Gorch" sketch on Saturday Night Live, King Ploobis seeks advice from The Mighty Favog on how to stop Wisss from smoking craters. The Mighty Favog, who is possibly stoned at the time, quotes a line from the song: "The answer, my friends... Is blowin' in the wind!"
- In a Global Grover sketch, Grover returns from Puerto Rico with a marimba fruit that has been turned into a guiro. He then tries to do the same with a large watermelon. When it won't play like a guiro does, he tries blowing into it like a wind instrument. When that fails, he states, "The answer is not blowin' in the wind instrument."
