Mah-na Mah-hell

Remember how I told you that my family got me the most deliciously wonderful Mother's Day gift? The whole first season of the original Muppet show on DVD? And how I knew it was a timeless classic by the fact that they were so mesmerized by the first episode that they wanted to watch it over again instead of moving on to the next episode?

Welcome to my Hell. One of the first skits on that episode is the pink cow-things singing "do-do-dee-do" and being periodically interupted at musically appropriate moments by the hipster-caveman inserting "mah-na mah-na".

All day, small children have followed me through the house insisting at various moments that I'm either the "do-do-de-do" or the "mah-na mah-na". Hours of this!

It brought to mind the saying "This life is as close to Hell as Christians are going to get." Apparently my Hell is populated with small otherwise-charming beings determinedly singing "mah-na mah-na" until my head explodes!


ROFLOL! My dh will start singing this when he wants to bug me, because once it gets in my head, it STAYS there!

(Thanks a lot, btw!)

The Muppet Show was a bit after my time. But just reading your post, I find that now I've got the theme song from the old Captain Kangaroo show (from my childhood, late 50s & early 60s) stuck in my head, and I can't get rid of it!
