ANIMAL! A quick story in captioned media...

So the other day, I happily wore my new "Be Kind to Animal" T-shirt for the first time.

My older son Alex said that the shirt was "embarrassing." How could it be embarrassing, I wondered? It was cool! Then it turned out that he thought that the shirt had Elmo on it. How embarrassing! Not that my son thought I'd wear an Elmo shirt--stranger things have happened. No, embarrassing that my own flesh and blood had no idea who Animal is!

A quick YouTube search, and that was quickly alleviated by this:



And further alleviated by a little bit of this (isn't Harry Belafonte awesome?):



That resulted in this:



My firm belief is that my son will no longer diss my Animal shirt!

Bonus Animal footage (Look! Rita Moreno!):



ANIMAL!? AWESOME!
