VeggieTales

And now it's time for Silly Posts with Chandler, the part of the show where Chandler comes out and posts a silly post.

If you like to talk to tomatoes, if a squash can make you smile, if you like to waltz with potatoes up and down the produce aisle...

What is it about singing Christian vegetables (with the occasional fruit -coughBobandLarrycough-) that is so appealing to kids of all ages, not to mention Christian homeschooled speech and debate kids? I don't know, but VeggieTales is pretty bomb. From Pa Grape to the Peach who has hair, from Larry Boy to Lord of the Beans, from the French Peas to the Pirates Who Don't Do Anything, from QWERTY to Billy Joe McGuffrey, from Burger Bell to a kid named Oscar... Gah, the list of awesome is virtually endless!

Recently I was hanging out with some homeschooled speehanddebaters and we could not remember how Love My Lips starts (If my lips ever left my mouth, packed a bag and headed south, that’d be too bad, I’d be so sad). It was a bit frustrating, but funny because WHO CARES? We do, that's who!

A friend of mine once quoted/sang the song at the end of each VeggieTales episode in an Apologetics speech. "And so what we have learned applies to our lives today, and God has a lot to say in His Book. You see, we know that God's Word is for everyone; and now that our song is done, we'll take a look." He focused on the "God's Word is for everyone" part, so that's pretty amazingly awesome, I think.

You're homeschooled. Have we got a show for you.

    I LOVE the Lord of the Beans!! So clever. =) Veggie Tales is totally the bomb. Well, with homeschoolers. Even the grown-up mature ones like you. I am not grown-up or mature, but I still love Veggie Tales. =) Thanks for posting,
