Elaine Benes: I was sittin’ there, making Cup-a-Soup, singing that song from The Lion King.
Jerry Seinfeld: “Hakuna Matata”?
Elaine Benes: [ashamedly] I thought I was alone.
Jerry Seinfeld: That doesn’t make it right.

  1. Never in my life have i heard about this Meccano thingy. Mai ales la noi. But hey, i had no childhood=> i was born a grown up. 🙂
    So what happened to it? Where is it now?
    Oh, and since you called it an antidote- here’s a little fable: “Driven by hunger, a fox tried to reach some grapes hanging high on the vine but was unable to, although he leaped with all his strength. As he went away, the fox remarked, ‘Oh, you aren’t even ripe yet! I don’t need any sour grapes.’- People who speak disparagingly of things that they cannot attain would do well to apply this story to themselves”
