I wasn’t allowed to watch much tv when I was little. Which was fine by me, as I was adept at losing myself in a book at a very young age.
One of the few shows I do remember (in addition to the Smurfs and the Snorks), is Jabberjaw. That silly little shark, always so affronted that he wasn’t getting any respect. “A woo woo woo! No respect, no respect. Nah nah nah.”
Yeah. It wasn’t a mystery cartoon, that’s for sure. Okay, so maybe it kind of was – I seem to recall some apprehending of villians or some such, but there was never any question why respect for the shark was lacking.
Perhaps he should have tried the suit I’m wearing now. Because I bothered to get up early enough to blow dry my hair, throw on a suit (which fits well, thanks to my recent re-obsession with the gym), and apply just a touch of makeup, and it’s working for me. People are getting out of my way, and that’s just how I like it.
The moral of the story? Wear suits more often. And, in the immortal words of Will Smith,
“I make this look good.”
