Muppets on Weed

Standard

Because today is 4-20, here’s a marijuana-related post.

The other night I had a dream. In the dream I was trying to get in touch with an old boyfriend with whom I haven’t spoken since 1994 or so. In the dream, I knew someone who I thought was maybe in touch with him, so I was going to contact that person and try to find him. My sister said she would contact him directly. Later she was going through all the hemp necklaces I had made, and I thought she was going to send one to the guy I was looking for. The necklaces had glass pendants and some of the pendants had images of Muppets smoking weed.

I posted the details of this dream on an email list I am on with a bunch of other people I went to college with. I mentioned in my message that I had never actually seen an image of a Muppet smoking weed. One of the women on the list (self-proclaimed Google goddess) found this video.

I strongly urge you to watch this video before reading any further.

I have to admit, I was 15 to 20 seconds into watching it before I realized that the song had been dubbed, that there was not actually a Muppets skit about selling and smoking weed. (No, I was not stoned. I don’t even get stoned.)

I think the song is hilarious, a very good parody. (I’m surprised Weird Al didn’t think of it.)

I have to say, my favorite part of the video is the banjo-playing Jerry Garcia Muppet. Even without the marijuana themed lyrics, the banjo-playing Jerry Garcia Muppet was a great touch. It’s nice to know there was a Jerry fan somewhere on the crew of The Muppet Show.

I’ve probably watched this video ten times since I found it in my inbox, and it made me laugh every time. (No, I’m not stoned.)

About Blaize Sun

I live in my van, which makes me a rubber tramp. I like to see places I've never seen before, and I like to visit the places I love again and again. I like to play with color. I make collages and hemp jewelry and cheerful winter hats. I take photographs and (sometimes, not in a long time) write poetry. All of those things make me an artist. Although I like to spread joy and to make people laugh, my wit can be sharp. I try to stay positives in all situations, to find the goodness in all people. But I often feel compelled to point out bullshit when I smell it. I like to have fun, to dance, to eat yummy food, to sit by a fire and share stories. I want to know what people hold dear and important, not just make surface small talk. This blog is a way for me to share stories. This blog is made up of my stories, rants, and observations, as well as my photographs.

I'd love to know what you think. Please leave a reply
