Why Dora the Explorer may send me to a padded room

Filed under: Work Life, Media

Okay, those of you without kids, listen up:  you know how sometimes you can't get an annoying song out of your head?  Perhaps it's that annoying "My humps" song, or some other song that you really don't like that's currently being played on the radio, but unfortunately the beat is so catchy that you ...just...can't...stop...mentally...singing it?

Yeah?

Well, my little kumquats, trust me when I tell you that that's NOTHING compared to what you will endure when you have children.  Some children's songs and tv jingles have the most ANNOYING lyrics, but they are designed, of course, to be catchy enough that your little ones will sing along.

For example, right now, I have the Map jingle from Dora the Explorer running through my head:

"I'm the map, I'm the map, I'm the map, I'm the map!
I'm the map, I'm the map, I'm the map, I'm the map!
I'M THE MAAAAAAP!!!"


This song has been banging around my cerebral cortex, by the way, for the past THREE DAYS.

What about you -- any annoying children's songs that won't leave you alone?
