Watch this video to understand this expose. OK. You saw that? Good. Mehna Mehna does indeed have a meaning. My interpretation may be shocking…
Pink Puppets = Female Yoni: This video seems to be about one women represented by two pink birth canals. It seems the two pink ‘creatures’ represent the sexual organ of women complete with ovaries (their ears), uterus (large, round skulls) and birth canal or yoni (circular mouths). Further indication that the pink puppets may be symbolic Yoni is the color – pink – which is the Universal color of most Yoni – of the human kind.
Two Puppets = One Woman’s Right and Left Brain: The two women are ONE mind. They seem to be the two parts of self. Women are thinking (verbalizing) beings and women are emotional (creative) beings. So I feel the author is sub-consciously representing the dual nature of women. The pink puppets are in sync – hence the tendency within the human female species to align her verbal (left brained) self with her emotional self (right brain function). Women seem to have a stellar grasp on her feelings such that verbalizing them comes naturally, this is different from men in most cases, who do not verbalize feelings as freely.
Enter male puppet – Stereotypical Man: This man puppet is green, scraggly, and ugly for all intensive purposes. The female puppets seem to be aggravated by this creature evidenced in the fact that the two pink puppets (one mind of women) tend to take up the screen while the male puppet has to find his place on the screen – or get in where he fits in. He seems to be symbolic of the single mindedness or direct focus of men, he is not split into two parts. He also seems more authentic, less robotic, than the females. A testament to his desire to create the mold rather than fit the mold?
Male Asserting His Will: The male puppet attempts to scat, or use improvisational means to enhance the version of the song the female puppets are singing. This seems to be symbolic of the man expressing himself, expressing his dreams, desires, expanding his maleness (Ideals) or attempting to become the leader of the song – the soloist.
The women, or woman, shuts this down immediately – even from the first time he tries to do it. She is unwilling to accept his leadership and uses both her emotional side, and verbal side (who seem to agree) to say NO! NO NO NO NO NO NO! You will not assert your will here, you will not become my leader – we are in charge and that is that!
Feminine Imbalance: It is true that the women were there first singing merrily. However, when man enters the picture they reject him, shun him and force him to the background. Seems that the song is rather monotonous and that including the man’s scats may not have been a bad idea. However, the female in this video seems to reject the value or use for male energy.
The EXIT of Man: The man, feeling the clear rejection from the women, then tries to find another location to situate himself. He runs far away and we hear him singing from the cave (hence the echo) this is a proverbial cave that men often run to to find solace from masculine, overtly yang women he encounters or finds himself mated with. From there he tries to lead again – the proverbial scat of life. Women are unsure as to how to utilize male energy. Maybe they don’t realize that harmony is possible?
The women look way back at him (in the cave) and shut him down – AGAIN. So he leaves!
The man cannot find a place among the more dominant women (female puppets) who move about and maintain dominance by force (taking up the front row of the screen and not allowing the man a place). So the male exits stage right. The sign on the door clearly says EXIT in huge letters – ironically the ONLY REAL WORDS depicted in writing in the skit.
Men Go Along with Female Dominance But From Afar: From where he goes – away from the woman, far, far, away – he submits to female dominance. This time he doesn’t attempt a scat. He says Mehna Mehna just like she wants him to. He falls in line with the will of the dominant women, but only from afar. He has exited the relationship proverbially and only includes himself from a symbolic place called afar.
The Animal as Messenger: Finally, Kermit The Frog gives the ladies the phone to hear their man who has mentally fled the scene. Ironic, many women say that men are animals! Here, he sends an animal (animal nature) to deal with women once he has had to exit based on being undervalued and underutilized? The women (animals themselves – pink cows?) are surprised that he can still communicate with them from afar, their actual shock is maybe that they have received what they desired (total dominance) but without the satisfaction of his BEING THERE present with them? They look backward to consider his placement only to find that he is gone (seems they expected him to stay as they degraded him and are surprised that he left)
Mehna = MEN: If we break down the word Mehna – the word MEN is embedded. See for yourself…
Conclusion: Women and men can and should be able to harmonize with one another. However, because of the current social climate have been unable to. Why? Men show up as human beings and attempt to harmonize with women. Women decide that his input is not needed and that he should simply follow her lead. Women are better at verbalizing this and thus win arguments with men all of the time! Men retreat into the cave and only show up in their animal version to deal with women. They have given up their throne just as women have given the throne away.
Solution: Women are powerful beings. We are creative beings. We can literally create from the womb both babies and literal material things, concepts and realities in the world! However, it takes the spark of male creativity and might to ignite the flame of creation, hence sperm and egg. If we push the male energy away and decide we cannot allow him a space in our creative endeavors (relationships) then we will not only lose out but so will he. Making a space means harmonizing with him rather than totally submitting to him. The submission part is all about allowing a man space in our world trusting that his input will complete a process of creation that will serve us both!
I have been here before and I refuse to go anymore. I am submitted to my honey and I know that the rewards are great! I do not have to give up my feminine power to do this…I simply must learn to harmonize with another human being of another kind of power – masculine power. How about you? Mehna Mehna? OK – cool!
