Today's guest writer is Josh, who brings us the very funny Man Vs. Baby. He describes his site thusly: "Essentially, my son wasn't doing enough interesting stuff to write about, so I made shit up. It became a habit that everything from Baby Mad Libs to the recent passing of Cookie Monster, from 'just one too many.' May he rest in peace. If my son appears, he's generally the genius and I play the big dumb oaf. You've got to go with your strengths."
Goodnight, Moon to Become Reality Show
The colorful cast of Margaret Wise Brown’s famed Goodnight Moon
has agreed to do a reality show of the same name to coincide with the 64th anniversary of the first publication of the classic.
We caught up with some of the aging cast in the green room of the Great Green Room to get their thoughts on the project.
Red Balloon, looking more like a shriveled pink kidney, said, “Doing the book was a life highlight for me. Most balloons just get popped.”
It wasn’t such a lovefest for the entire cast, though. Comb and Brush haven’t spoken in decades. And the in-room romance between Socks and Mittens fizzled with a rejected marriage proposal.
“I guess she got cold feet,” Socks said, with no sense of irony.
Bowl Full of Mush, looking pale and unappetizing as ever, said only this: “Eat me.”
Two Little Kittens (real names Arty and Marty) are now two nearly immobile mounds of matted fur and eye crust, the hefty toll of childhood fame and readily available catnip. As we chatted, Young Mouse hobbled right past them and gave them the bird. Marty farted.
The years have been gentler to others. Clocks, an ageless wonder, vowed to set the record straight:
“People say I’ve had work done. That really winds me up, you know? This is my original face!”
Noises Everywhere said, “Ahahahahahahahhhhhh. Brrraaaaaahhhhhhaaabrahahabaa.”
Quiet Old Lady Whispering Hush, still old, still quiet, offered some perspective: “Shhhh.”
Moon said, “Can somebody please get this cow off me?”
Should be fun. Shooting starts next week. If all goes well, producers are already auditioning cast members for the long-awaited sequel, Good Morning Sun.
