    WOOOHAHAHAHA! How I missed this one of Opus learning how to speak English through Mr. Rogers, and all of its subtleties!

    Opus, cutting through the jabber and being cynical about Dick Clark (who lasted another twenty or so years). I did not watch Mr. Rogers, however—never.

    RIP, Mr. Clark. This New Year’s Eve won’t be the same without you. :(

    Well! How dare BB suggest such a thing about DC!
    In my ‘BC’ book, Opus is watching ‘Mr. Rogers Neighborhood’ (probably the same drawings) and a politician is on. He says the man is a public servant. “Can you say ‘public servant’?” Opus says, “Bozo.” “Very good, boys and girls.”

    Opus has watched Mr. Rogers for language lessons at least a few times. I remember three specifically, including this one.

    But according to the Mayans, we wouldn’t be needing Mr. Clark’s services this year anyway.

    Don’t worry about that Mayan calendar thing. I have three calendars that all last longer. One goes to December 24 (it has cute little doors for each day). The other one goes to the end of the year and the last one takes up where that one leaves off.

    By the way, I think Mr. Rogers was under rated.

    No, not according to the Mayans. According to loonies who have misinterpreted the whole Mayan calendar thing.

    OK Opus. Can you say “Teen- BOPPING”? It also keeps Mr. Clark feeling the young!

    Hey, boys and girls, can you say “Dick Clark and Mr. Rogers together”?

    britain had their version of dick clark, his named was jimmy saville. who we later learned after he died that he was a pedophile who liked underage girls. and, there were rumors, but he was connected to the royal family, pm, police, conservative party, ozzie murdock, that no one investigated him. sad thing was he was knighted by the queen and the pope for his charity work.

    No, the Mayans said no such thing. It is all the Christian gringos saying that claptrap. Go to the source. Mayans are still around too.

    @hariseldon59

    I’m convinced that the whole Mayan doomsday thing is a hoax – or a total misunderstanding…I just bought 2013 calendars for everyone on my Christmas list…now everybody knows that if the world was really gonna end in twelve days, there wouldn’t be bookstores and kiosks in all the malls selling 2013 calendars…right???
