I'm pretty sure the Bible states that Barney is actually Satan. It's probably in Leviticus. I never got around to that book in my Saturday night Bible Study, so...yeah...Leviticus. Oh well, he's still a better babysitter than I am. At least the purple Beelzebub can keep my kid still for more than 30 seconds.
My son is obsessed with Barney. I can deal with most of the kids crap that's on TV. Thomas the Train? Fine. Sesame Street? Long live Ernie and his "roommate" Bert. I can even live with the 4 guys from Australia that wear brightly colored shirts and have a knack of getting songs jammed into adults' heads. Not only that, but their net worth is that of a 3rd world country. Ladies and gentlemen, The Wiggles!
So KidDoodle2 and I are watching The Wiggles one morning and he (my son) is pissed off. I mean Pissed. Off. Barney is nowhere to be seen. I tell him I needed a break from that overly animated, cherubic piece of purple felt and the brainwashed kids that follow him around like some sort of deity. His response?
As we're having this argument, this week's SSTIFY entry comes on the show. KidDoodle2 is mesmerized and, for 3 minutes and 34 seconds, he forgets about Barney. The following is not a Wiggles Original, but it should be recognizable....even for the youngins who read this blog.
These guys creep me the hell out. Especially the purple one. He's a narcoleptic on the show. Just falls asleep for no reason. That's his "thing". Really? REALLY? My God...this is what we're teaching our children. There is a female dancer in this video, however, that should be more prominent in the show from here on out (:47 in, on the left). That aside, I still can't get this damn song out of my head. Here it is:
Good luck to Laura and Lam this Sunday in New York! For everyone else, have a happy and safe Halloween everyone!
