Blue gets a Clue

This is for all of you mommies and daddies out there who - have had to, are having to, or will have to - watch way too many episodes of Blue's Clues.

I've discovered a way to make the whole episode much, much funnier; especially with Steve. Imagine, as the front door opens, that instead of a young preschooler talking to Steve, it's a man in a white lab coat with a clipboard and reading glasses. The whole show takes on new meaning.

"Yes, Steve, that's quite interesting. Are you telling me that you really do see this 'clue' of which you speak? What do you think that means? No, no, Steve. What colors do you think we should mix to get green?"

I think Blue's probably in on it, but I don't think the other's are. Except maybe Mailbox. I'm thinking a cross between High Anxiety and The Matrix.

Can I just say, I was laughing throughout your post! I am well out of Blues Clues (and so are my kids) and I think that I would have a panic attack if someone made me watch it now. I may have to try that IN CASE OF EMERGENCY!

I'm probably just missing something,but Mel Gisbon isn't in The Matrix, I've never seen High Anxiety so I don't know about that. The appostrophe in Gibson makes me think he either directed or is in these movies you mentioned. Am I just reading it wrong?
Since reading the book you let me borrow i've been second guessing my punctuations. I plan on mailing the books back to you this Saturday. I really enjoyed them, Thanks.

Okay, I meant Mel Brooks' High Anxiety. I know The Matrix is different. I've fixed it.

My 4-year old loves to play Blues Clues, especially when he has a little notebook and a crayon at hand.

My 1-year old joins in. Of course, he writes on the walls.

...and to think that my students don't know their primary colors. Sad. So so sad.
