Late Night with Seth Meyers is good, but definitely lacks a green, furry quality.
Memes are weird.
Dunkaroos. All day, every day.
Did Lady Gaga steal her new song from a puppet?
All signs point to ‘eh I guess so.’
We were brought together by greed for fame.
They told us to move our mouths silently.
From there, our lives were never quite the same.
Thrust into the spotlight so violently.
First, we sat on the Billboard – prominent.
Limos, hotels, our lewd agent, Sammy.
Then, atop the industry – dominant.
Women, MTV, dollar bills, Grammy.
The higher we were lifted from the norm,
Up farther and farther from the mundane,
The more we felt the fury of the storm –
Now, a life barely able to sustain.
We were loved and adored by all who heard,
Yet neither of us sung a single word.
