Reading Dr. Seuss books to my kids was one of the best parts of their childhood for me! He was a brilliant man and knew how to put messages for the grown-ups among the silly words and funny pictures. He actually worked in advertising, as an illustrator for the government and did political cartoons before he wrote children's books. I have a government issued postcard in my collection from WWI that he did. A soldier sent it to someone. Here's a 1933 ad I found in a New Yorker magazine:

I feel just like I did when I was a little kid and a grown-up would tell a joke that I didn't get!

Just saw this in a comments section of a news article, and it made me laugh:

     Five surgeons from big cities are discussing who makes the best patients to operate on.

     The first surgeon, from New York, says, "I like to see accountants on my operating table because when you open them up, everything inside is numbered."

     The second, from Chicago, responds, "Yeah, but you should try electricians! Everything inside them is color coded."

     The third surgeon, from Los Angeles, says, "No, I really think librarians are the best, everything inside them is in alphabetical order."

     The fourth surgeon, from Dallas, chimes in: "You know, I like construction workers...Those guys always understand when you have a few parts left over."

     But the fifth surgeon, from Washington, DC, shut them all up when he observed: "You're all wrong. Politicians are the easiest to operate on. There's no guts, no heart,
     no balls, no brains, and no spine. Plus, the head and the **** are interchangeable."

Apparently it's a children's television show. This is a translation from the website for the network they are on:
Biss and Kajas doing a television show that is about what you can do with your body. Along with Rumporkestern (the house band) they to try to get answers to questions like: Can you dance with your nose? Who is the best football player? And what can you really do with your back?"


I have no idea what question they were trying to answer in that clip you found! And I thought Teletubbies were weird!

That is a very bizarre clip, Dmitry!

Omigosh, I loathed Teletubbies. Both my daughters adored them. I found the show not only annoying but also kind of creepy.

I preferred Noddy:

Maybe something about jet propulsion in humans.

I found them surprisingly interesting! The voice overs must have been done after a party. How did they keep a straight face? What a job! Kids did love them for sure! I still do the Oh-Oh to my dog when she gets into mischief!

Does she give you a head tilt for that? I find it hard to believe that a sweet-looking little girl like her ever gets into mischief!
