watching the muppets christmas special, which is a modern, puppet-populated movie paying homage to ‘it’s a wonderful life’, among others — in which david arquette, a cubicle-type angel, dares to go straight to the supreme being (played by whoopi goldberg, who lives in a paradise where the shrubs give coffee) to present the case of kermit, who’s being foreclosed on by the very evil bank manager’s widow (joan cusack, brilliant). there is a pause in the presentation of the case, during which god/whoopi is unconvinced. he urges her to watch some more, at which point she says ‘you’re just lucky spongebob isn’t on’.
it’s on right now. all-star cast, funny as hell, and muppets. highly recommended.
