Day twenty-eight of 30 posts in 30 days
I remember as a young teenager thinking that I would never EVER EVER allow my child to watch Barney. Barney made my stomach heave and wretch like I was about to unleash a obscene amount of goolash.
While Barney in no way makes me feel quite the same way these days (although it still is a bit like getting razors shoved under your fingernails) there is one show that DLG watches occasionally that does: The Wiggles.
Have you seen a group of four men look more frightening?
Formed in Sydney, Australia… this group of four men claim to be your “child’s first rock band”. I’m more inclined to teach DLG that: “if a man who looks like any one of these guys ever tries to talk to you then scream for the police”. While they may sing catchy tunes that I catch myself humming sometimes (right before I sock myself in the testicles) there are far more shows out there with more bearable songs than theirs.
Believe me… this is just the tip of the iceberg…
Okay, so Barney’s got the dinosaur thing going… kids like dinosaurs. The Wonder Pets are all cute little pets… kids like cute little pets (and one wiff a lysp… I’m team Ming Ming). Yo Gabba Gabba has acid-trip characters, celebrity sing alongs and a giant dildo named Muno.
What does The Wiggles have?
Why does he have a feather for a sword you might ask? Well… it’s because feathers are less violent than swords! Duh!
Anyway, if the worst thing about being a father is having to endure a 20-block moment of time where DLG wants to watch The Wiggles… I guess I ain’t got it so bad.
But that doesn’t mean I still don’t want their Wiggles plane to crash in the Himalayas and be reduced to eat each other to survive. Just sayin’….
Who get’s the linkage today?
I don’t know. I have an idea… if you read my blog, have your own blog and would like me to link to your blog in my next post then comment on this post… and I’ll link to you tomorrow.
Listen… even if I’ve already linked you… just leave me a comment and I’ll link to you again.
I’m just a stand up dude… what can I say?
