Fish Cowboy Hat.JPG
Muppets Ernie & Bert — Ernie tries to put a pot on Bert's head. Bert asks Ernie why he's doing that, and Ernie says that he broke a cookie jar. Ernie has to put the cookies somewhere, so he put them in the sugar bowl – and put the sugar in the flowerpot, which meant that he had to put the flower in a milk bottle. He put the milk in the soda bottle, and the soda into the fishbowl, and the fish in Bert's cowboy hat. Bert asks, "Now what am I gonna wear when I wanna play cowboy?" Ernie puts the pot on Bert's head and says, "Ride 'em, cowboy, Bert!"
