When talking to dummies doesn't involve pitching something to NBC executives

Right now, Comedy Central's new Jeff Dunham Show is buzzing in the background and I can't get the voices out of my head. Now I know what it's like to be a ventriloquist and a meth addict.

No disrespect to Dunham and company, but there was a time when throwing your voice was impressive enough to get on television. Check out the late Señor Wences chatting it up with his friends Johnny and Pedro on the original Muppet Show. It's alright.

Señor Wences was the freakin' man! I can still crack up my kids by doing his "Shut de door!", "Sorry!", "'s all right!" routine.

"...there was a time when throwing your voice was impressive enough to get on television"

Am I missing something? Isn't Jeff Dunham's ventriloquist act why he's on TV?
