Ode to an Orange

I like to consider myself MJL’s resident Jim Henson expert (though Matthue frequently tries to steal my title). Loyal blog readers may remember my aspirations to earn a Ph.D. in Muppetology.

So imagine my joy when I saw our latest episode of The Adventures of Todd and God and, after a bit of research, found an extended ode to Sesame Street.


Todd and God <button class="m-tooltip__trigger" aria-describedby="tt_110145" type="button">Rosh Hashanah</button> Video
In our video God, in the form of an orange, slowly prepares for the singing of two brakhot by adoring himself like an opera singer.

The scene mimics a classic Sesame Street short where an orange prepares herself to sing an operatic rendition of Carmen.

It’s truly beautiful.
