The best of Sesame Street

Over on YouTube I found my favorite old Sesame Street skit. I enjoyed seeing it again after all these years. My kids also enjoyed it.

God damned

This is kind of a funny saying if you think about it. I mean why would God bother to damn something.

A traffic light glitch causes it to go flashing and delay motorists. Like God personally damned that traffic light this morning to go flashing.

Some dog barks at night. It starts raining while you walked from the bus stop to work. More likely stuff just happens, breaks, wears out, bad luck or whatever just happens on its own or by chance. Much less likely is that God for some reason decided to damn it.

But who knows. Maybe God for whatever reason does choose to damn things. Perhaps each morning He sits on His throne for a few minutes with a coffee and a huge printed list of thousands of things that He will choose to personally damn this day. Elevator out of order in Dallas. Newspaper ink smudge in Montreal. Traffic jam in Chicago. Bank machine out of service in Calgary.
