mousescout commented on the list quotable-puppets
I tend to quote muppets in my classes- one of my students in particular likes to make fun of me for that. So I thought I'd list some of my favorite muppet quotes.

You can sing the Greek Alphabet to the tune of "Momma's little baby loves shortnin' bread" Try it. It's fun.

This list deserves some sort of award! I love colors!! Good job mikeropology!
Thanks for your support & kind words- don't worry- I'm not despairing or anything. I'm rather fond of this site. I stumbled upon it, quite serendipitously, while sitting in a hospital recovery room after the birth of my daughter. Since then it has been a rather wonderful resource and relaxation aid. I just don't like upsetting people. So I apologize to shevek, and with fresh sensitivity- we move forward.
It's a shame really- that I've managed to upset so many people. That was never my intention. I am not Jewish, but I am a hebrew scholar- and the Tetragrammaton is a kethiv kere- that is- what is written and what is read differ (out of respect for the holiness of His name). I am a christian educator- i teach Hebraics & Biblical Greek- I also pastor a small island church. The passage I posted (now deleted) if from Deuteronomy- the "Shema". It may be part of Jewish liturgy, but it is more than that- it is the core of Christian doctrine as well- it is shared liturgy, if you will. Christ quotes it in Matthew 22. I stand in awe of my God, & the beauty of His word as revealed to the prophets & scribes is one of my greatest joys. It is sad that I cannot share that in forums like this without angering my peers. I promise now to refrain & stick to secular words & phrases. A pity- but, as Vonnegut says...
such a lovely language- perfect for such a lovely sentiment
