Dec 11 2009Muppets Perform 'Ringing Of The Bells'

Remember the video of the Muppets performing Queen's 'Bohemian Rhapsody' from a few weeks ago? Well those crazy hand-up-their ass plushies are back at it, this time with the holiday classic 'Ringing of the Bells'. And speaking of ringing bells:

There was a fugitive who sought shelter in the home of a woman he knew. Her living room had a cathedral ceiling, which is to say it went all the way up to the roof peak, with rustic rafters spanning the air space below.


She was a widow, and he stripped himself naked while she went to fetch some of her husband's clothes. But before he could put them on, the police were hammering on the front door with their billy clubs. So the fugitive hid on the top of a rafter. When the woman let in the police, though, his oversize testicles hung down in full view.

The police asked the woman where the guy was. The woman said she didn't know what guy they were talking about. One of the cops saw the testicles hanging down from a rafter and asked what they were. She said they were Chinese temple bells. He believed her. He said he'd always wanted to hear Chinese temple bells.

He gave them a whack with his billy club, but there was no sound. So he hit them again, a lot harder, a whole lot harder. Do you know what the guy on the rafter shrieked?

He shrieked, TING-A-LING, YOU SON OF A BITCH!

KURT VONNEGUT FTW

I love timequake. And Slaughterhouse 5.

I go around Ting a Ling to everything. Even at clambakes after repeating the last decade over again.

Whoah, when I first saw the still for the Youtube clip, I thought the muppets were underwater in a coral reef. I even mistook the highlights in the snowy white tree on the left for air bubbles!


hehe love this :)

I thought it was Carol of the Bells...

@ 9:
Yeah... it's definitely called "Carol of the Bells"


C'mon GW... get some knowledge in your brain, ya turkey!!

The clip's name is "ringing of the bells". It might explain the apostrophes that he put around the title.

Muppets! They never get old.....

So, my question is who is writting these postings? Definately not GW, I'm thinking that we are in the presence of a new intern or something.


this is thank you.. :)
