This video:

[Description: Mash-up of Cookie Monster singing “God’s Away on Business” by Tom Waits. Lyrics here]. This is even better than the time I won a Babysitter’s Club poster at a raffle in the 3rd grade, which is to date the only raffle prize I have ever won.

    First off, I have to commend zuzu for bringing up Heigh Ho!. I had that album in vinyl and played that song for people all the time, asking them to tell me when they figured out what song it was. Watching their faces as they clicked onto what it was… delightful.

    Rachel, that’s great. Of course, the muppets are so perfect for this kind of thing.

    (Mind, you I remain terribly over-fond of this example of how our brains work. This is because I am a terrible person.)

    Well no matter how “sad” your life is, it can’t be nearly as bad as the dude who had to amass enough unique mouth puppet-lyric coordinated clips to do this.
