R.I.P. Prince (1958-2016)

Prince recently passed away at the ripe age of 57. I admit that I was never really a big fan of his, but being the big 90s kid that I am, there are two 90s moments that I remember him the most from.

The first was the raunchy "finger Prince" gag from Animaniacs, and the second was his appearance on Muppets Tonight:

It really takes a talented individual to write such a catchy song based upon a list of random items like starfish and coffee, maple syrup and jam, butterscotch clouds, a tangerine, and a side order of ham.

Sadly, as today proved, such talent can easily fade away in a blink of an eye. Good night, sweet Prince, and flights of angels sing thee to thy rest!
