“I’m a Mormon” campaign prompts copycat ads

I'm a Mormon

As the ongoing campaign expands to Brisbane and beyond, it’s also earning flattery along the way as mimics come out to play.

I’m a bear, I love to tell jokes, and… I’m a muppet.


Meeeh mee mee me mee. Me meee mee me! Me me Memmeeee.

P.S. Some light holiday reading:
