The internet is really really great...FOR PORN

Avenue Q is now officially the funniest musical I've ever seen. Possibly one of the funniest anythings I've ever seen. For those of you who haven't heard--do you not read the culture pages?--it's sort of like Sesame Street for grown ups. I dunno, I never really watched Sesame Street. But it has muppet-type puppets, and human people, and songs and little animations explaining things. Like how to pronounce Schadenfreude (Shaa-den-froid-a) and how 'purpose' can be rearranged (and pumped up a little) to make 'propose'.


Only, I'm pretty sure Sesame Street never had puppet sex. Because, oh my God, there is nothing funnier. Puppet. Sex. Bear in mind they stop at the waist and then turn into someone's arm--and then add in the sound effects of Oh, my God, Kate, no one's ever touched me like this before - you can't put your finger there - OOH! PUT YOUR FINGER THERE!. Trust me. Hilarity prevails.


How can you not love a show with song titles like The Internet Is For Porn, and Everyone's A Little Bit Racist? And characters called Mrs Thistletwat and Lucy the Slut. They're puppets. Swearing and having sex. It's funny.


Plus, some of those puppeteers? Damn cute.
