Wow, Jim, you just brought back a long-buried memory. As a child I had an Oscar the Grouch book with a picture of a grumpy man’s face; when inverted, the eyebrows and furrowed brow became a mustache and downward-curled mouth, and vice versa. Oscar implored: “Turn a frown upside down — and keep on frowning!” When your world is filled with pre-school teachers and day camp counselors imploring you to sing “If You’re Happy and You Know It,” that’s a delightfully subversive message. No wonder it made an impression.
Now where’s my Play-Doh? I’m hungry.
