Holy [bleep]...and I thought my method for dealing with the scary stuff was extreme! (When something on Sesame Street bothered me enough, I'd fiddle with the controls until the picture disappeared.) Thank goodness your folks didn't take the set away for a few years after that paint job...And now this is a completely true story. I couldn't make this up if I tried.
And Mokeystar will swear on a stack of bibles it's true:
Once when I was about three (1971) they showed the painter skit of Paul Benedict painting his 10 on the stool, etc. Then they showed the Nobody clip. Scared the be-jeezus out of me. So taking a cue from the painter, I went down to the basement and got a can of paint and painted over the tv screen so Nobody couldn't scare me any more.
I got to paint my own 10!
Believe it or not, my parents didn't punish me. They were just too stunned at my handiwork.
My offer still stands. I dare anyone to top that.
