Your trivia for the day

The catchy-as-all-hell "Mahna Mahna", best-known as the song sung by "Mahna Mahna and the Snowths" on the Muppet Show, was written by Italian film composer Piero Umiliani for the 1968 Swedish softcore porno documentary "Sweden: Heaven or Hell." Umiliani called his song "Mah Na Mah Na" and even named a boat after it. Jim Henson chose to use the song in the Muppet Show because he liked it so much; the Henson company nowadays recognizes the song's origins but it's unclear as to exactly how Henson found the song in the first place (gee, ya don't suppose for one moment, do you...)
