Muppets: "Can you picture that?"

Friday, December 29, 2006 - 11:21 PM

Since I started sharing poetry the other day with Robbie Burns, I'll give you a peek into the "poetry" that runs through my mind on a daily basis. This morning, it was the best line ever uttered in the English language.

Specifically, by the Muppet character Janice (of Dr. Teeth's band), in "The Muppet Movie", as the band sings "Can You Picture That":

Floyd:

All of us are winnin, pickin and a-grinnin, Lordy but I love to jam

Janice

Jelly-belly gigglin, dancin and a-wigglin, honey that's the way I am!

Dr. Teeth:

Lost my heart in Texas, Northern lights affect us, I keep it underneath my
hat,
Aurora Borealis, shinin down on Dallas! Can you picture that?
Can you picture that?

----------

Janice: you are, and shall always remain, my secret favorite Muppet character.
