Alanis Morisette feels your pain, Lord Mandelson

British news outlets were thrilled Friday to show over and over and over and over (and over) footage of a woman throwing a cup of green pudding/slime on Lord Mandelson as he arrived at a low-carbon energy summit.

It occurs to me that the fashionably dressed protester looks oh-so-slightly like Moose, off "You Can't Do That On Television." Which suggests that in that slight pause between when the woman confronts Mandelson and when she empties the cup on him, he answers a question with "I don't know."

(I suspect a very tiny number of people will actually get this reference without having to follow the links.)

Nickelodeon I believe still lives off of slime to this day. And it all started with You can't do that on Television.

I too got the YCDTOT references...

I also think periodically of Barth's Diner. I wish I didn't.

I loved Moose when I was a kid. Did you see if Alistar was there?
I am so sad...
