New York, NY (Strutts News Services) – Thursday, Whoopie Goldberg, Barbara Walters, Joy Behar and Sherri Shepard (while berating Elizabeth Hasselbeck for daring to argue logic and common sense) were approached by a creature of superior intelligence from the studio audience of “The View,” and didn’t even notice. All suffered severe palp scrapes and abrasions. No beak bites were reported. Film at 11.
It’s intuitively obvious to the casual observer that this stuff really works. Just one drop and you’re free from you-know-what. I don’t need it, but I bet YOU do…
And if the Magic CephaloDrops don’t work, RIDE ‘EM! The danger is you gotta break ’em first. Teach ’em to stay on the track.
Mr. Bittman has absolutely no respect for the sentient. He’s just asking for a double-palp smackdown, right square in his crackerbockles.
Ignore the misspelling and the erroneous apostrophe, and the fact that a large octopus could easily kick a moray eel’s ass. It’s still a cool sketch.

These folks ain’t got NOTHIN’ on the Lunch Lady, and they’ve got all the food color groups covered, too.
“Please, sir, may I have some urchins?”
“If you don’t eat yer snails, you can’t have any urchins! How can you have any urchins if you don’t eat yer snails?!”
