The lyrics are intentionally goofy and redundant. I guess that's supposed to be silly. First season weirdness is an understatement. This seems like it was supposed to be a series of skits or something, and the only singing part of the actual song is wrap-around for the "too dumb to live" human comedy characters. So the song part is completely unnecessary. They could have done the entire sketch without the music and it could have been exactly the same. Maybe punchier.Before and After
The Anything Muppets refer to this as "Silly Song Time", but I don't see (hear?) anything funny about the lyrics. But the actions are funny, with Buddy doing some demonstrations during the song. The first season show content had "RE-DO" intructions for this because of Buddy (it actually listed Buddy and Jim though Jim isn't in it), I don't think the whole song would need to be redone (I wonder if they replaced Buddy's parts with Wally or Ralph, I couldn't see Larry or Phyllis being featured for that). For the past decade I've been wondering how hats stay on Muppets, as many look like they couldn't stay on too well without something sticking on them, and in this the pumpkin AM's hat seems to barely stay on, flying to the sides as if it's sewn on, then we stop seeing it as if it had fallen off (or maybe it's hanging behind his head).
Frank Oz's voice of God is the only thing really interesting to me. It makes the skit funnier than it should be, especially the annoyed, yet never breaking tone "You're on your own" comment. Now, I know the way to teach and entertain kids is to give them goofy, incompetent adults, but come on. This is very much abusing that trope. Sure, a 5 year old might think an adult that doesn't know how to eat is hilarious, as an adult you wonder why he didn't drown with his head in the bowl trying to drop a deuce.
Never been a fan of Buddy and Jim (or any of these humans to be replaced by Muppets), but I have to admit this one was easily the funniest (if eye rollingest) one of their skits. Though you can totally eat a freaking piece of cake with a coat on! Somehow I think it should have been "Take the cake out of the box first" instead. or even instead of opening/closing his mouth. Yeah, him trying to chomp down on a cardboard box would have been funnier.
