We've kept a skeleton in our collective closet here at Beware of the Blog for far too long. If our repeated allusions to this obsession have yet to warrant suspicion amongst our most dedicated readers, it's time to let the secret out: Muppets, we wish we could quit you.
A recap of our previous adventures in muppetude:
- The most influential muppet? You be the judge, Animal vs. Cookie Monster
- No public official can resist a pleading puppet
- I haven't decided whether listening to a loop of Fozzie proclaiming "Waka Waka" over and over will make you a happier person or 68% more likely to require therapy in the next 10 years
- The Muppet Theme in Hebrew (MP3), guaranteed to disorient any unsuspecting bystander (via On the Download)
And now a treat from my own repressed psyche, a classic Sesame Street skit that planted many a nightmare in my fertile childhood brain... the Yip Yip martians. Download the audio of their TV debut (MP3) starring a rotary telephone, and watch the clip here if you were never terrified by those clefted lower jaws. I've also captured the audio of a newer clip, when the Yip Yips meet a computer: download the MP3, or watch the clip here. I'm sure there's a ringtone of that "Brrrrinnggg!" clip somewhere...
