Top Ten Tuesdays: How are we celebrating the 40th anniversary of Sesame Street?

10) Acknowledging Oscar the Grouch's influence on the American Teabag Movement.

9) Giving The Count a supporting role in the next one…two…three Twilight movies, ah ah ah.

8) Taking Snuffleupagus to the salon for a good Muppetscaping.

7) Raising money Grover needs for counseling after realizing he is the monster at the end of the book.

6) Alleviating Big Bird’s midlife crisis by replacing his old nest with a new Porsche.

5) Declaring a National Talk Like a Yip-Yip Day.

4) Taking Elmo to the Champagne Room for the tickling of his life.

3) Vowing to not stop pushing until Ernie and Bert can legally wed.

2) Giving Cookie Monster a lifetime supply of insulin.

1) Commemorating 40 years of intelligent, groundbreaking, unforgettable children’s programming—programming that taught us how to count, remember our ABCs, use our imaginations, share with others, and be better people…programming so timeless that our children love it as much as we did when we were children—by making a bunch of low-brow jokes about the Muppets.

hey, the Muppets are ALL ABOUT low-brow jokes.

So, you know, well done.

Brando said...

Hmm, ZRM, so perhaps I was actually being meta about being meta, even though I didn't realize it? Can you be unintentionally meta? I need TLB to explain this to me.

As John Stuart said: "You'd be surprised what comes up when you Google Muppet Scat."

Brando said...

I wish I had a Web cam showing how much I was cringing as I clicked that link, before laughing when I saw what it was. I had seen that clip recently because we bought the season 1 Muppet Show DVD.

Is that what the kids are calling it nowadays?

Fish isn't linking to a scantily-clad spider, is he?

Snag said...

Everybody's crazy 'bout a sharp dressed spider.

fish said...

If you keep clicking my links, you'll go blind.

Wait, that doesn't seem right.

Snag said...

That explains fish's hairy fins.

Churlita said...

I've taken a vow never to click Fish's links.

fish said...

I was cringing as I clicked that link, before laughing when I saw what it was.

Yeah, I was looking for something else too.

Jennifer said...

Apparently everybody has stopped clicking fish links.

fish said...

And here I thought Churlita and I shared something special after catse.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

dammit, I clicked that fish link, and now am LMAOUTW.

Laughing my ass off, unable to work.

Jennifer said...

I clicked it too... it's the damn lubed hands that get me.

Hey ZRM... how about a baked good??

Ok... my word verification is goateraf...

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

I saw what the link said, and still clicked it. I am SO making those for the Cookie Contest...


Disgusting, is all.

Brando said...

What I loved about Jennifer's link was the line above the site title:

There IS such a thing as too much curiosity.

fish said...

YES, me too!

Marcia L said...

No Bert and Ernie gay comments? I am most disappointed.

The links y'all have are too much.
