    you mean it’s NOT a dibble-dabble?

  • Jake Jakob says:

    I had a friend who went to the dark side and worked for years at a consulting company that was hired by the Ontario Conservative government to teach them how to organize government more like a business. They actually suggested referring to students in schools and patients in hospitals as “customers” or “clients”. So Grover was right after all so he may also be right about the dibble-dabble.

    “Near and Far” is a classic, transcending place and time by demonstrating the concept of place and time. But as this Jake Jakob character points out, the latter clip is disturbingly contemporary, suggesting that some of the people directing education lack the linguistic ability inculcated by Sesame Street. Perhaps they should be placed in what would no doubt be a disorienting and salutary role for them–that of students. We could start them out with the basics, “near” and “far.”

    Spooky, isn’t it? Perhaps Grover went into consulting after the Elmo takeover…
