Sometimes I’m a curmudgeon-y old man when it comes to the Internet, shaking my fist and telling it to get off my lawn. I feel nostalgic for the old days, when life was simple and major airlines didn’t have to worry about a tweet causing controversy.
But then there are times when I feel deeply, deeply endeared to it. Usually it involves Kanye West. Very rarely, however, does it also involve a gang of Cabbage Patch Kids. Today is one of those days. Right now is one of those times.
All I have to say is thank you. Thank you to Kanye West. Thank you to the creative genius that turned Kanye’s song into a music video involving one of the strangest toys of my generation. And finally, thank you to the kind person at Jezebel who made this discovery and felt the need to share it immediately. Without you three, I might have never known true joy.
