The Muppet Show - The Cat Came Back

I was out in the garden the other day, spending several hours planting and weeding and digging.  It was early afternoon and already pretty hot and humid, I was soaked through with sweat.  Perhaps it was the first sign of heat exhaustion, or that my internal cranial temperature reached some unknown threshhold required to connect some long lost neurons.  Or maybe it was just a sign of how my brain works.  Anyways, the following song popped into my head.
I haven't heard or even thought of this song in 20? 25? years, but there it was clear as day playing in my brain-jukebox as I whistled along.  It's on days like this that I feel kind of bad for Alycia.  It's strange/weird/difficult enough for me to live in my own head, I wonder how she feels sometimes having to interact with me and my inherent craziness on a daily basis.

And I know that you'll probably just go looking around on You Tube for your other favorite Muppet Show skits, so you should start off on the right foot with the Mahna Mahna Song.

I don't know what's so strange about this: about once every 36 months, I too have this song in my head (and if I could whistle, I would). On a monthly basis, I have the Muppet version of Witch Doctor going through my head (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5rCoseZkII0) which makes for some interesting meetings at work.

All kinds of bizarre free associations leading to randome songs pop into my head during gardening. Just another reason I like to garden. Though I tend more towards Sesame Street and classic rock. Not sure what that signifies.

Ha!!! I'm very glad to hear that I'm not the only one getting crazy (or Muppet related) songs stuck in my head.
