Random Fun Fact

I learned today that “pretty as a puppet” is one way to say a girl is cute or attractive.  I don’t know how you ladies feel, but in my limited experience with puppets I cannot consider this a flattering comparison.  Maybe after I’ve experienced some of CR’s cutting-edge puppet theatre I will change my mind.

  1. Have you seen “The Sound of Music” with Julie Andrews? Then you will remember the impressive puppets and puppet stage. I loved those goat puppets so I’m thinking it’s definitely a compliment. Plus the Muppets just made another movie this summer …. Just sayin, puppets are creative.
