Let's go a little light on the sci-fi this week. Here's our old childhood friend Ernie. And he is decidedly Bert-colored. I don't know the significance of this...just that it feels somehow significant.
Here's a creepy thing about Ernie. I only see this now as Adult Me, though the Kid Me captured it pretty well. While Ernie seems like a happy go-lucky fellow -- he has that rubber ducky he sings about, he's always pulling Bert's leg, he's got that infectious laugh, he's a fun guy -- the whole time he's laughing, he has sad, sad eyes.
