The Wiggles Gettin' All Hot Potato On Your Sorry Ass.

Happy Saint Pattie's Day - again. And speaking of the Irish, it reminds me of potatoes. Which brings me to this song by The Wiggles. Hot Potato.

My sister swears these dudes aren't gay but I'm not sure. The dancing sure looks pretty gay to me. So what's the deal with these dudes? My kids aren't really little so they don't watch this nonsense. I have to admit though that it's pretty catchy.

Except the person that cast the pirate that comes on a few seconds in should be fired. What an ass.

My grand daughter loves the wiggles, they really get her moving and jumping along with the dvd. Captain Feathersword is o.k. once you get used to him. Have you been drinking?

I think the people doing kids shows are doing drugs.

Dr Zibbs said...

Cora said...

I'm a nanny, Zibbs, and I'm telling you the little kids I nanny for are TERRIFIED of the Wiggles. They cry when it comes on tv. But they love Mr Bean. Heh heh. Clearly I am raising them right!! ;-)

Dr Zibbs said...

Cora - I've never heard nanny used as a verb. Cool.

Dammit, Zibbs, you got me in trouble at work again. The pirate sunk me. I couldn't stop laughing.

J.J. in L.A. said...

Yup, they're gay...no self-respecting straight man would dance like that.

~Thought's By Dena~ said...

I babysit in my home and the kiddos love these guys. So I get stuck watching them 5 days a week...I know what you are thinking...lucky me!!! hehe I just think its funny that these guys get paid to do this and probably more than most of us get paid!!!!

wait thats not frickin funny at all!!!!

They might not be gay, but you might be for showing us that video.

And the blue-shirted Wiggle isn't the original dude from the group. Wait, does that make me gay for knowing that?

Crap.

moooooog35 said...

I've seen the Wiggles live, in concert.

Who's gay NOW?

Soda and Candy said...

Not gay. Do you know how many hot single mamas there are at Wiggles shows???!!!

Trivia: The blue Wiggle was voted (Aussie magazine) Cleo's Bachelor of the Year a few years ago.

My nephew LOVED these guys when he was a toddler. He's sixteen now. Thanks a lot Zibbs, I feel super-old now.

Susan said...

Gay, but SOOOOO rich. That's what we've always said.

the iNDefatigable mjenks said...

Thanks, jerk. I had almost purged all the Wiggles songs from my memory banks, but one little post by Dr. Zibbs, and now I've got Fruit Salad ringing through the cavernous halls of my mind.

Soda and Candy said...

B.E. Earl - That sure looks like Blue Wiggle Anthony Field to me. Then again, it's super-pixelated...

Tony Alva said...

My loved these guys when she was little. They've made a fortune doing this schtick. I always hated that stupid pirate and wags the dog.

BTW, the chef dude that appears with the pirate in the video was the drummer for Crowded House. He offed himself a few years ago, very sad.

words words words said...

The Red Wiggle looks just a little TOO happy to be a Wiggle. Keep it together, man.

Also, I think it's the Yellow wiggle that had to quit, and I think that's the original guy in this video.

Finally, the best things about the Wiggles are the mashups with filthy rap songs that you can see on YouTube. Now that's entertainment.

Dr Zibbs said...

Earl - I think I know the answer to that.

Debbie said...

I just can't make up my mind about the gay issue. On the one hand, singing and dancing like that seems to be a given. But, I don't know a single self-respecting gay man that would be caught dead dressed like that. Gosh, this is a tough issue.

Caffeine Court said...

All my friends refer to The Wiggles as "those gay guys" but I really don't think they are.

All the girls/ladies I partied with on Saturday were from the West Chester East Class of 1983. We are still as immature now as we were 26 years ago!!

The Gnu said...

they're not gay. and it was Greg, the yellow one that left. (he has some kind of rare disease) he was replaced by Sam. Hey, it's not weird i know this, i'm Australian.

sj: how else can you pronounce banana? and you think thats a problem, try sesame street with zeeee instead of zed! lol

Kimmie said...

I admit to knowing more Wiggles songs than I should, been to a concert, and had a small crush on Greg (Yellow). None are gay to my knowledge - all are/were married except for Jeff (Purple), but they did have majors in child education and when their "serious" band didn't take off, they turned to children's songs. Greg started fainting on stage then had to leave.

I could go on. But I wont.

Dr Zibbs said...

C Court - Did my name come up?


Kimmie - you were married to one weren't you?

Lisa said...

Yep. They're gay.

Florida Girl In Sydney said...

Even though they're obviously the gayest thing ever, I love them-- well I did until they got a new yellow guy-- he sucks.
