Earbug of the day/month/year: "Mahna-Mahna"
You know that Diet Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper ad with the incredibly-catchy, goofy music?
Well, as I was discussing with friends recently, it's based on what some consider to be the best Muppet Show skit ever - that of "Mahna-Mahna and the two Snowths" (their name is a combination of "Snout" and "Mouth" - so they should really be "Snouths"). See that page for more details, and the full lyrics.
And, I've found links to a video of the original skit, as well as a slightly-different audio file - which is even funnier, IMHO, due to the extended Waldorf & Statler commentary. (And, as an aside, here's the rough opposite of that commentary, as well ;-)
WARNING: Watch/listen to this song, and it will be stuck in your head for quite some time...
And note: Each attempt I've made to verify my belief that "If you merely say 'mahna-mahna' to anyone who grew up in the '70s, they will immediately respond with 'do-doo-de-do-do'" has worked out perfectly. Thanks for validating this, folks!
