Lookit Me, I'm Sandra Lee, Short On Vocabulary

Don't worry about being extremely well-spoken - if you're PRETTY enough, people generally won't notice how few words you know. They probably only listen to a select few, anyway.

Long. Thick. Nine-inch. (Not sure of THAT word) Take it. Take it. Take it.

Ohhhhh, yes...

Soon to be available at a store near you, sometime in August: the Mister Potato-Head KISS set! Nope. NOT A JOKE. Not a mock-up. This is the REAL WORLD, here, folks. "This Is Spinal Tap" seems less ridiculous to me every day...

Maybe the Demon/Gene Simmons model spits ketchup, hm?

If you must, go check out the announcement at the KISS website:

Trippy Kermie

Those of us who grew up with Jim Henson's delightful creations on Sesame Street and The Muppet Show may be surprised with his earlier work...a bit "OUT THERE". Worked with the composer Raymond (Bugs Bunny influencer) Scott on several avant-garde audio bits...and those wonderfully violent Wilkins Coffee commercials (I'll have to show some of those , soon!)...great stuff.

This clip is from "Sam And Friends", which taped and aired in Washington DC between 1955 and 1961. The dude in the shades is Harry the Hipster, and the square fellow is Kermit (not yet "The Frog" - still missing his collar!). This bit was redone several times: on Ed Sullivan in 1966, and on Sesame Street in 1971.
