Why, some of the most ridiculous earworms you'll ever hear. Don't say I didn't warn you. Gripp is also an ad-jingle writer, which might explain why the songs just won't. leave. your. head.

"Shopping Penguin"


or this one:

"Boogie Boogie Hedgehog"

Or how about...

HAMSTER MANIA.

Or that darn cat flushing a toilet!


And then, of course, here's the eternal question: "Do You Like Waffles?"
