Goodbye Friend

Bob Keeshan, aka Captain Kangaroo, died today. Captain Kangaroo used to be one of my favorite shows as a kid, and I don’t mean that in an ironic, VH1’s “I Love the ‘80’s” kind of way. I loved it when the ping pong balls would fall on Captain Kangaroo’s head. I have a feeling that’s where Nickelodeon’s “You Can’t Do That on Television” stole the idea to have people slimed on their show. Regardless, it’s a sad day for children’s television.

On a side note, and I can’t believe I’m even mentioning this couple because they are now working full time to replace the void that Bennifer has left now that they’re over, but rumor has it that Ashton and Demi are engaged. I think they’re just doing it for a free toaster.
