Goddamnit, I love me some teenagers! The Baby Goat and her flock of adorable, pony-legged comrades are always turning me on to such hilarious, wondrous happenings as this video. The way they look at the world — through brand-new eyes, unravaged by the bitterness of time and bad drugs from the 80s — is such an amazing, invigorating, and inspiring thing for an old hooker like me. That they take such joyous delight in celebrating small moments like this gives me hope for the future yet.
One look through youtube will show you that teenagers in not only my girl’s little group but kids from all over the world are currently re-enacting their very own versions of what was originally a sweet little video clip posted by some proud mum in the UK. God, I live for shit like this — and needless to say…”Charlie Bit My Finger” shall be the name of my new band.
Come…take my hand and join me, won’t you? And belly laugh by my side as I vampirically drink the blood of the taut, the youthful, and the scorchingly funny.
One of the many delightful homages to be found on youtube:
