happy birthday anyway, you magnificent bastard of my childhood

Happy Birthday Mr. Rogers.

I hope that evil bastard is roasting in Hell while Mother Theresa pegs him with a 13 inch (purple) strap on. I sincerely hope he has to listen to the lamentations rising from the nearby Pit of Pregnant Popes for all eternity.

Trolling a Mr. Roger's thread? It's okay, he wouldn't get upset. He'd just ask to talk about the things which make you angry.

If there really is a kind and loving God, He probably wears a zippered cardigan.

You did good work, Mr. Rogers.  I would've been honored to meet you and bought you a drink, a cup or tea or something similar.

I could never watch that show.

It was the puppets. They freaked me the fark out.

I know he's been dead for quite awhile though, but I really didn't wanna type something really long mentioning how he was one of the few geniunely good people in the world.  He was a minister, but never preached it on his show or tried to convert people to it.  He spoke of the idea that everyone was special, no matter who they were.  It's just sad that kids born after 2001 don't get to grow up with such a great role model like Mr. Rogers.  He's dearly missed in this day and age.

Better?

Born: Latrobe, Pennsylvania
Died: Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

He sure didn't go far in life.

Enough said.

Sorry, I know he was a great and gentle man who touched a lot of lives but when I first saw him as a kid he freaked me the duck out, it might have been because I first saw him on a old tube style black and white TV that took several minutes to come on and when it did the picture would appear ghostly and washed out only to gradually solidify from the center out at which time the sound would come on, so my first memory of him was as a spectral head with a ghoulish grin asking me to be his neighbor from a scratchy , tinny speaker at six in the morning, I remember pissing myself, turning off the TV and hiding under my parents bed...

Dude. Not a Mr Rogers thread. Seriously.
 
2013-03-20 07:29:42 AM
I hate this fad of celebrating people's birthdays after they are dead.  Birthdays are for commemorating annual increments of a person's life.  You don't wish a 'happy birthday' to the dead.  They are dead, and so cannot receive your well-wishes.

It should be a "Mr./Mrs./etc So-and-so Day" instead, where the happiness is wished upon the living who fondly remember the good deeds of the honored dead.


/Happy Mr. Rogers Day to everyone!

Never seen the show in my life, in fact, I can't even recall coming across it while channel surfing, I guess it never aired where I lived.

In 1969, Fred Rogers appeared before the United States Senate Subcommittee on Communications. His goal was to support funding for PBS and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, in response to significant proposed cuts by President Nixon.

And if you ever came to Pittsburgh, you'd see a memorial to him at the airport, at the children's museum, and at the PBS studio where he filmed the show. But I'm sure you have changed as many lives as he did, and I'm sure when you die, they'll put up more memorials to you, right?

I'm a 31 year old man, and I still cannot listen to the Mr. Rogers remix without tearing up for some reason.
I and my siblings grew up watching that show, and it wasn't until I was an adult that I realized the absolute value of it.
The guy was a living Saint. As a kid I had no idea he was a minister, he was that non-preachy.

My kids will be watching it, whether it's on TV, or I have to drive to PBS and shove money in their faces until they print out a DVD for me.

Yup. Mr. Rogers stood up for time-shifting! He is one of the reasons you can use a DVR today.

I just wish he had testified in the PMRC hearings, because the combination of Mister Rogers, Frank Zappa, Dee Snider, and John Denver would have been maybe the greatest assemblage in modern history.

Wow, completely missed that.  I'd argue that Wilson from Home Improvement is a MUCH better neighbor than Flanders though.

Um.... I know it's early but you know that was a joke, right?

"He didn't go far" is a play on words. In geographic terms, his life ended not terribly far from where it began while in a more abstract definition of the phrase, he clearly did a lot of good and had many significant accomplishments.

Really? Better than Wilson from Home Improvement or Mr. Feeny?
 
2013-03-20 08:52:28 AM
He WAS a bad-ass.

•He killed 244 zipper-heads with his bare teeth; sunk a U-boat by hanging his ass off the stern of a destroyer and pinching off poop charges into the deep.
•He bested Chuck Norris in a best-of-seven game of Old Maid, Go Fish, Candyland, Chutes and Ladders, Connect Four, Pictionary, and Coke Snort 'n Hooker Bang.
•From his living room in America he could unbend Uri Geller's spoons in Europe.
•He's the reason there are still condors in North America; he would eat carrion and let the hatchlings feed straight from his gullet. Never once did he bite their heads or even gag as they rammed their beaks into his maw to fish out putrified goat-meat or rancid road-kill.

All in all: he was the best of us.

/You are missed, sir.

Amen to this. I watched Mister Rogers as a kid and yes, I even watched it as a teenager. Reading Rainbow was
awesome, even if Levar Burton was mocked relentlessly for it. Mister Rogers, Reading Rainbow, and Schoolhouse
Rock - our kids missed out on so much.
