Compare and contrast the following two bits of information concerning Statler & Waldorf:
First, and this is about a week old now, is Statler & Waldorf winning a Webby.
Los Angeles, CA â€“ May 2, 2007 â€“ The Webby Awards, the leading international honor for web sites, today named Statler & Waldorf: From the Balcony (http://movies.go.com/muppets/archive) for the Best Comedy: Long Form or Series, Online Film & Video for 2007 in the annual Peopleâ€™s Voice voting. Peopleâ€™s Voice Winners will be honored at The 11th Annual Webby Awards in New York City June 3-5, 2007.
Here’s a sampling from the piece:
Then, in spite of my efforts, you blatantly disobeyed our community’s balcony bylaws by calling out to poolside visitors with comments that were rude and distasteful.
As Mrs. Needlemyer was floating in the pool.
STATLER: Waldorf, quick! Call Sea World! One of their whales is swimming in our pool!
WALDORF: That’s not a whale! That’s Mrs. Needlemyer. Can’t you tell the difference?
STATLER: Of course. Silly me. Whales aren’t nearly that big!
From Rob Bloom‘s email to me:
My name is Rob Bloom and I’m a Comedy Writer and Screenwriter. I came across
your Muppet blog (which is great, by the way) and wanted to let you know
about a humor article I’ve written about the Muppets. It’s posted on the
popular humor website McSweeney’s.
