You might want to start a new thread in order not to derail this one further.

This is reminding me of a very old Sesame Street skit. Bert is reading a book in his living room, sitting on an easy chair. The title of the book is on the cover and plain to see: "BORING STORIES". Bert says, "Wow, these boring stories are really exciting!" It seems that skit was memorable enough to make Wikipedia:

Quote:
Bert, though kind and intelligent, is also grumpy, boring, serious, and easily frustrated. His catchphrase is "Yes, I do mind." He enjoys activities such as paper clip and bottle cap collecting, cooking oatmeal and watching pigeons. Producer Arlene Sherman has called Bert "everyone's idea of a blind date". In one sketch, Bert reads a book called Boring Stories and chuckles, "Wow! These boring stories are really exciting!" In the book Sesame Street Unpaved, Frank Oz says, "I was never really happy with Bert's character until about a year in, when I realized... that he was a very boring character, and I'd use that weakness as a strength for him."

Bert has very boring foods as his favorites. He loves oatmeal, unflavored soda water, and other bland related foods. In one episode when Ernie is hired to sub for Mr. Hooper, he gives Bert a glass of unflavored soda water but adds syrup, ice cream and whipped cream to it, angering Bert who eventually screams a memorable phrase: "I hate ice cream sodas!"

I always figured Sesame St. was the beginning of the end for Western Civilization, I encouraged my kids to watch stuff like Bugs Bunny and Road Runner. But I do have a soft spot for Bert, he was the Schopenhauer of the street.
