My girls are way past the age where I have to grit my teeth and bear every inane children’s program on television so I was caught off guard when we went to the Dr.’s office a few days ago. In the waiting room of our family doctor was a show that my girls told me was called Yo Gabba Gabba.
I had initially planned to ignore it and read some some 25 year old Time magazine (did you know that Madonna and Sean Penn are getting divorced?). Then this bizarre guy in some orange fashion disaster presents these odd creatures in a box. Then these very odd things start to sing at me. Well one of them looks like a cat who needs a diet and one is seriously a phallic symbol(complete with one eye)and then there were a few others that just become a blurred haze. They proceed to sing at me at how I should not bite my friends.
Seriously here is the song
“Don’t, don’t, don’t bite your friends”
and they just kept chanting this like some strange cult mantra.
Okay life makes much more sense now.
That would completely explain my lack of friends.
Why didn’t someone tell me this earlier….when it could have been of use to me.
Apparently a major social lesson…and I have been biting people for years!
After I picked myself off the floor from laughing so hard, and then took Regan to the bathroom before she wet herself from laughing too hard. The girls and I decided there are some really socially inept kids out there, if this is what children’s programming has resorted too.
