Hooray for everything!

The Malcontent is in negotiations with Sheldon to provide a recurring forum for his pop culture cheerleading. I'd love to share his sunny world view, but then I'd have to like Robin Williams, so you can see the complications.

Here's Sheldon's latest retort (truly, I can't make this shit up):

Sheldon is flattered that other people want my views. I don't know what to say about the Pussy Cat Dolls. I say "Go Girls!!" and keep selling records. But I don't think little girls should be imitating them. Children are the future, I say.:) Mr. T rules!! I pity the fool that don't watch T and see RV!

So Shel, one question: Are you now, or have you ever been, a member of Up with People?


  1. "Shiny Happy People"
    You know you want to sing it!

    There was even a "Shiny Happy Monsters" version on Sesame Street.

  2. Hey Malcontent, If we're "in negotiations," have your people call my people. LOL! I'll let you in on a secret. I tried out for Up with People one time, but let's just say I wasn't a good enough singer and dancer. And not all of those Up people are as nice as you would like to think.:(

  3. Collins3:32 PM

    Aren't Up With People those way too happy dancers that show up in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade every year?

    Flags, bright shirts, perma-smiles even when it's windy and 20 degrees out?

    I always wondered about them.........

  4. Jo,
    Are you making fun of Sheldon? Just kidding! I like happy people, happy songs and songs about happy people. :)

  5. No, no. Not poking fun. Just amused.
    I was always a "glass is half empty" kind of girl myself.
    I applaud your ability to find the good in horrible movies and dorky dancers, because to me they are just horrible movies and dorky dancers!

  6. Sheldon appreciates the applause. But horrible movies!?! Hold on there, Jo. I will be nice. To each his or her own. :)

  7. We'll have to agree to disagree on this one, in the name of peace and happiness:)

    (I put in that little smiley face on the end just for you)
