As I write these posts I continually think about what could I come up with that was different from what I normally write. Well today I'm all about nostalgia with the Muppets.
In case you don't know, the Muppets were created by Jim Henson and include Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy and Fozzie Bear.
I remember watching the Muppet Show on television growing up. It was great fun with weekly guest stars. For those of you too young to know, they had a syndicated thirty minute variety show. And it was awesome.
Fast forward a few years to when I had a child and the Muppets were making a comeback. Well I never felt they were gone, but you know what I mean. When Whitney was around 5 we got a computer (the old days of dialup modems) and I won a computer game that had the Muppets in it. It was for a little older age group than her, but she enjoyed watching them do silly stuff.
Our all time best Muppet moment is Fozzie Bear. Whitney loved Fozzie so much that was the game she wanted to try and do. As you know, Fozzie isn't the best comedian. Loveable but not necessarily funny. So the game you tried to throw tomatoes at him. Whitney put together a saying whenever she would attempt to tell a joke. She ended every one of them with "waka waka...throw some tomatoes". To this day I can't think of Fozzie without the tomatoes.
