Five Glorious Rings!

A few days ago at work I captioned an episode of Sesame Street, which I always enjoy, but the plethora of new, unfamiliar Muppets got me thinking: you know you're of a certain age if you didn't grow up watching Bert, Ernie and the gang. I was well out of my preschool years when the show debuted in late '69, and initially it was a curio, available only via snowy reception of the PBS outlet in Buffalo.

Anyway, it's never too late, I suppose: my favourite character is Count von Count, and here's what happens when he hires Ernie to answer his telephone. In the Count's words, "It's not as easy as it seems."
