Sesame Street

Tonight I quoted a line from Sesame Street that I have been quoting for years. I don't know how to spell it, b/c its in French. But I've always thought it meant "help me" and it sounds like [oh-se-coor] and to me it always sounded like "I'm so cold". So, that's what I use it for. Why do I think it sounds like "I'm so cold"? Because the Sesame Street film clip had a penguin on an ice flow dancing or freezing or something and yelling at the other penguins. I have no idea. These are the acid trips of my childhood. Does ANYONE remember this??? Tonight, I tried to look up the French to find the English meaning - but that didn't go so well... apparently it means "of the neck". Which is odd, but not what I wanted. Sigh. Sometimes, I wonder what brain damage I encountered as a child.

  3. No, no, I totally remember that too, but it wasn't penquins. Wasn't it a kangaroo in an umbrella? No, no, that was another Sesame Sreet skit. But Kristin's right, it is "Au Secour" and it means "help".
