Lydia, Oh Lydia

I am a huge Muppets fan, and I have been forever. My first full-length record was the soundtrack to The Muppet Movie (and before that I was watching The Muppet Show on TV). My sister and I used to rent these Best of Muppet Show tapes in the 80s, and that's where I really remember my favorite skits (I think I was a little young when the show originally aired, since I was under the age of five). One of my all time faves is the following skit, which is perfectly reproduced on YouTube. The song is "Lydia the Tattooed Lady," which is a funny old song not original to the Muppet Show, but perfected by Muppets nonetheless. It makes me laugh and smile until my face hurts every time I watch it. Enjoy:
