    Hello. Here is a thread where you can discuss jokes in Muppet productions you don't get, or lines or lyrics you have seemed to mishear. Here's mine:

    In TMM, I have been confused by this gag:

    DeLuise: ... I have lost my sense of direction
    Kermit: Have you tried Harry Grishner?

    I have googled that name and I am not getting results I am looking for.

    I think it's Hare Krishna is who Kermit mentions, because there is a Wikipedia article about it.

    I also don't get the Jennifer Lopez song " I Luh Ya Papi" either, and I know this has nothing to do with Muppets either.

    Recently heard the Muppet Show version of Chattanooga Choo Choo. First time ever hearing the song (don't judge) and I hear near the end "Shuffle off to Colin, gotta keep it golden" ("Shovel all the coal in, gotta keep it rollin'")

    In Muppet Treasure Island, during the roll call sequence, most of the characters called on (and not every member of the crew is addressed by name here) have names that are puns, or ironic, or follow a pattern with other names. But then there are some names I don't get, like Smoke Eye Pea(or was it Black Eye Pea?) and Wall-Eye Pike,

    I'm pretty sure it was Black Eye Pea. Hope it makes sense now. But, I don't know about Wall-Eyed Pike..

    I don't get that one joke in MMW! When Fozzie says gutenburgen or something and then Kermit says something like we have a solid leafen on gutenburgen ...something? :confused:
    Wait I think I have it in video form...



    Around 3:09ish-3:15

    Well the character Black Eye Pea indeed has bruised eyes.
    A walleye pike is a type of fish -and the pirate is a muppet fish. It's a pirate-ish sounding name that follows after Black Eye Pea and plays on the fact that he's a fish.

    I never got the joke, my cousin is so dumb he thinks that eggs Benedict is a mafia gangster, what's it mean? some insight would be great.

    It's "Poopenbergen." And "A sold week."

    It's because it's a vaguely-sounding mafia name, except it's just a food dish.

    It's a reference to Hare Krishna, which is a religious movement.

    Stolen cars are usually disguised to make it more difficult for the original owner/Police to spot it. Sam is making the point that based on the colourful/flamboyant clothes that Elton wears, he vaguely resembles what a stolen car might look like.

    Instead of ''Bet your cares away...''

    I though it was ''Bet your kids away...''
