One of These Things

If you grew up watching Sesame Street, then you'll know the reference to the song, "One of These Things is Not Like the Others".

Well, I wound up humming it today while looking at the front page of the Inquirer's Entertainment section.

One article was about the Philadelphia Orchestra and the little-known Vivaldi flute concerto they just performed. The next one was about the opera Carmen, its composer, and the 3-D movie of said opera. The third was about the Pennsylvania Ballet ballerina who'd recently been in the movie Black Swan and was in Swan Lake now.

And the fourth article was about Donald Trump's latest version of his reality show, Celebrity Apprentice.

Cue the music, please:

One of these things is not like the others
Which one is it, do you know?
Can you tell me which thing is not like the others
And I'll tell you if it is so.

One of these things is not like the others
One of these things just doesn't belong
Can you tell me which thing is not like the others
By the time I finish this song?
