In Which Your Obedient Serpent has his Fifteen Minutes  
On a Google search of the phrase "Your Obedient Serpent", eight of the ten links on the first page are to my blogs, user profiles, or comments I've left elsewhere. Only one actually concerns the source I stole it from to which that phrase pays homage: Bob Clampett's Beany & Cecil cartoons of the '60s, in which Cecil caps off the end credits by declaring himself "Your Obedient Serpent".

I'm ... not entirely sure how I feel about that.

On the one claw, hooray! Trivial fame! A memorable phrase linked inextricably with me!

On the other ... where's the love for Unca Bob and his Seasick Sea Serpent?

I feel: contemplativeconflicted

Sharper Than a Serpent's Tooth
The worst part is that you can't even find the complete "Beany & Cecil" cartoons on DVD--just a few highlights. The complete cartoons used to be available on VHS. What happened?
