Meet The Muppet Parody Band Nine Inch Snails

If a show has the words "Muppets" or "Jim Henson" in the title you know it's going to feature some really awesome puppets, and the late 90s successor to The Muppet Show called Muppets Tonight was no exception.

Muppets Tonight introduced us to cool characters like the Nine Inch Snails, an all-gastropod grunge band who sing a morbid little song that includes the line "give me some salt and turn me to gel" and put on one shell of a show.

I’m reminded of my favorite story from Robert Fulghum­.

One of his first jobs was working the night shift at NYC hotel. Janatorial stuff. He was assigned a partner; an older man who was also a holocaust survivor. They’d do their thing every night and break for lunch. The meal was free, provided by the hotel, and was always whatever was left from the night’s dinner menu.

One week they had chicken three nights in a row. On the third night Fulghum loses it. “I’ve had it” says. Chicken three nights in a row. I’ve got a real problem with this. You’d think they could find something else to give us.”

His coworker listens silently until the rant is over and then says “Fulghum, your house is on fire; that’s a problem. You can’t feed your family; that’s a problem. Everything else is an inconvenience. Learn to tell the difference between a problem and an inconvenience.”

How is it that more than half of your YouTube links are the wrong kind of link? How do you get it wrong so consistently?

When we click on your YouTube Links we end up seeing a link to where you left off. Sometimes it's even at the end of the video.
