    I know at least one of you know who the Wiggles are. Well on my way to work this morning, I put the radio on 92.3, and they're playing the Wiggles "Fruit Salad" song. This was a bit of a shock. They're doing a fund raiser in which you can pay an amount of money and they'll play whatever song you want. Someone payed $650 dollars to play the Wiggles. I thought that was pretty funny.

    You are not alone, BrotherHalo.

    Today, I just went to the kickoff to their 2005 United States tour. (I was there with my son and wife).



    It was pretty cool. Captain Feathersword can fly!

    If they had Wiggles t-shirts in adult sizes, I would so wear one. But they don't.

    No, they're not as cool as Kim Possible. They're on par with Barney, but much better than Teletubbies and whatever the heck those Boohbahs things are. I'm surprised more kids don't have nightmares after watching those things.

    They are not on par with Barney, they far surpass Barney. That's like saying Star Wars is comparable to Lost in Space.

    They actually made fun of Barney in the live concert.



    They have overtaken Nicole Kidman to become the #1 Entertainers out of Australia.


    They have a remarkably weak website, [link=http://www.thewiggles.com] found here[/link]

    In terms of entertainment worth anything for children, these guys are it. They all met while studying early childhood education and development, and they formed this group, and it took off from there. Kids (and adults) are mesmerized by them.

    Well, for a dinosaur. Sort of. Okay, just kidding.


    But she is cooler.
