Boycott the Wiggles

Won't you give them your next paycheck?

Every year there is a new scheme to capitalize off the little people. The Wiggles, currently Australia’s highest grossing export is one such example. The Wiggles consist of four grown men: Greg, Murray, Anthony, and Jeff, who can’t help milking parents for all they are worth. It safe to say the music will corrupt young minds with catchy tunes about stupid subjects. Hearing “Hot Potato, Hot Potato” will likely cause you to jam a fork in your eye on repeat listens. Frankly, I don’t understand it. Anthony and Jeff had some modest success before the Wiggles with their band the Cockroaches. Obviously they didn’t chart in the USA. I digress, is this what happens when your band doesn’t make it big? Is it possible that Beck would have been the new Captain Kangaroo if Odelay didn’t take off? Well, we will never know the answers to those questions. Thankfully, Beck did make it big and came out with a few good albums too, which is more than I can say about Jeff and Anthony. Anyways, if I ever become a parent, I will NOT allow my kids to listen to that crap. The Wiggles make Elmo look wholesome and we all know how much of a media whore he is. Anyways, we should boycott the Wiggles like how we boycotted the last Crocodile Dundee movie.

Why you think yu are so special one? You are not a so special one. Me, suffer from rare disease, knowny as occasionally literate disease. Those of us who suffer from this deplorable condition are only occasionally literate. During such times, we can write as well as anyone, at least in terms of obeying laws of grammar and syntax and such. It is not WHAT we say that is warped, merely HOW we say it. It has often been said that if Shakespeare sufferred from our condition, he would never be known as a writer, ratger, he might'vebeen known as an illiterate with good ideas.

I think we might share a brain. I seem to be the only person in my neighborhood who thinks the Wiggles are frightening. Like too much prozac frightening. Like hanging out with young kids frightening.
Like I need a valium when I even pass the channel they are on.
I HATE the hot potato song.
