Yesterday, I went to see the Jim Henson exhibit at the Museum of Science and Industry with ... hm, perhaps I should not name names on the internet when you see what I'm about to tell you. Let's just call them "Mylar" and "Skeryn."
(See, I'm sneaky. No one will break that code if they know my friends.)
So anyway, I'm reasonably certain that it is scientifically impossible to not feel happy when you're looking at anything Muppet related. They are just so awesome and they are there to teach you happy things. Then you remember that Kermit's eyeballs are ping pong balls and it only gets better from there.
Then Mylar says, "Damn, Jim Henson was HOT back in the day. I'd for sure hit that." And then the whole thing goes down the drain because then Skeryn is like, "Why is he on a sex sled in that picture?" and then it all goes porno from there and small children are being shielded from the weirdo perverts (one of which is a preschool teacher) and nothing is funnier than realizing other people can hear you when you are being a truly horrible human being. And that does nothing to clean up your language. The words pig's vagina were used more times than I care to count. You've got to watch out for that stuff.
Also, did you know that the Fraggles were invented to teach kids about respecting diversity? Can you believe that we were learning that stuff without even knowing it? Damn, that Henson was smooooooth. I never even saw that coming.
You should go if you can. I'm sorry to everyone I offended with that, but it was amazingly funny.
Other side note: you know how sometimes one random line in a tv show will make you laugh for hours and hours and it's just not as funny to everyone else? My shout out goes to 30 Rock this week for the line, "Be bad at snapping. Got it." I almost peed, then I said it all day when it doesn't make any sense to any conversation I was having. Because I'm topical like that.
SOTD: Stay By My Side by Good Old War. Because I'm obsessed, in case you missed it.
Also, Split Screen Sadness by John Mayer because it was stuck in my head for like 3 days this week, and I don't know why. I mean, I love that song, but John Mayer has just been so douchey lately that I feel like I should really be giving him the cold shoulder but I just can't.
