Am I the only person who thinks this is seriously messed up?
Being a teacher and a mom hath its advantages. One, I get to spend time with the Offspring in the summer. Of course, it hath some downsides too. I get to spend time with the Offspring's TV choices. That, and I never go to the bathroom alone.
So this is one of the shows that my kids like. It's called Lazy Town. It's about how kids today are too sedentary. It was founded by an Icelandic aerobics star. Apparently, Cindy Lauper's Mini-Me plays Stephanie, another main character.
It's a TV show. About how kids veg out in front of the TV too much. To watch the show, a kid has to sit in front of the TV.
Is it just me, or is that either ironic or ridiculous?
That and the fact that the main character, played by Mr. Icelandic Aerobic Person, calls fruit "Sports Candy."
You know how people used to say that "H. R. Pufenstuff" was about drugs? Check out these outfits. I bet I know what "Sports Candy" the costumer was on. Of course this comes from the land of people like Bjork, who wears dresses that look like dead swans to award shows, so it's nice to see that that that wardrobe mistress found work after that debacle.
I find this seriously disturbing on so many levels.
