charlie is a heartless bastard, dripping with schadenfreude and rage

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:

About muffybolding

Muffy Bolding is a mother/writer/actor/knitter/feminist/withered debutante who likes the smell of asparagus pee, and remains obsessed with the bathroom hygiene of her three children -- despite the fact that they are 23, 19, and 16. She is blissfully married to a cute Jewish boy who looks like Willie Wonka, but remains tragically in love with the dead poet, Ted Hughes. She has the mouth of a Teamster, and her patron saint is Rocco (pestilence relief.) Ms. Bolding lives in Southern California, where she enjoys typing words, making movies, and plucking the rings from the fingers of the dead. She was the co-creator and Editor-in-Chief of the award winning satire zine, Fresno Lampoon, and in between writing screenplays, carnival barking, and savagely threatening her trio of darling larvae with a wooden spoon, she currently publishes the zine, "Withered Debutante." More of her work can also be found in the anthology, "Mamaphonic: Balancing Motherhood and Other Creative Acts", the compilation zine, "Mamaphiles III: Coming Home", as well as in The Cortland Review and She is currently writing and producing for film and television, and working on a book of essays entitled, "Inside A Chinese Dragon." She has slept around, but not nearly as much as she would have liked.
