She’s not a Day-Glo color. There’s no strange pointy thing sticking out of her head. And we’re reasonably sure she doesn’t have a TV embedded in her stomach. But don’t be fooled: Alanis Morissette is actually the fifth Teletubby. Consider the evidence.

Morissette: Recently released a CD called Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie
Teletubbies: Recently released a CD called Teletubbies: The Album

M: Started her career on a kids’ TV show in Canada
T: Started their careers on a kids’ TV show in England

M: Recently released a single that repeats Thank you over and over
T: Recently released a single that repeats eh-oh over and over

M: Strolls around Los Angeles naked in her ”Thank U” video
T: Stroll around Teletubbyland naked in their videos

M: Struggles with the English language, failing to grasp the correct definition of the word ironic
T: Struggle with the English language, failing to grasp the correct pronunciation of words like hello

M: Informs us in one song that she is ”perverted”
T: Inform us in one song that Po is ”dirty all over”
