The reason I mention this is because I've had this strange image in my mind for the last week or so. The fact that it's inextricably linked to The Muppet Show probably justifies its sheer weirdness, but I have no idea how the memory suddenly popped into my mind, or why it happened to stay there for an entire week.
In case the title of this post hasn't clued you in on the nature of that mental image yet: Yes, it involves dancing cheese.
No, doctor, I'm not crazy. Yes, this has been on my mind for the last few days at least.
After a number of inappropriate moments when the image of an animated block of gorgonzola suddenly crossed my thoughts, I figured that I might as well look around and see if I could find any bits of the original scene. We've come a loooooong way since the advent of primitive animation on TV; almost forty years, in fact. And if I knew the Internet well enough, the likelihood of finding anything that I ever wanted or needed to find across the World Wide Web was likely to be quite high.
Less than a couple of minutes after I began my search, I was incredulously watching one of the few film clips that was ever taken of the strange little image in my mind. It seems that you really can find anything on YouTube:
So there you have it -- dancing cheese. Don't ever say that I didn't give you anything.
Yes, I'm weird. Thank you for that casual -- yet appropriate -- remark.
Now if I only had some way to get rid of this image of singing vegetables out of my head...
