(There is nothing I can say to improve on this picture.)
Ernie has made up many guessing games over the years, and most of them run on a similar construct, but this is one of the greatest and funniest. This sketch is so perfect, so brilliant in its simplicity, that there's not a lot I can add to it.
When Ernie is leading up to the big reveal of his ears, he starts to sound a little bit like Guy Smiley, only less agitated.
If Ernie had the socks on his nose and his ears at the same time, he would look like an elephant.
Speaking of elephants, tomorrow we will deal with the elephant in the room. Hey, what a great segue! Would you believe that I didn't plan that out beforehand?
