The brand new trailer for Muppets Most Wanted is really something quite special

I say from this point on, all movie trailers should use fake Twitter quotes. It’s funnier.

I don’t want to believe: Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash accused of sex crimes with a minor

While Elmo isn’t my favorite Muppet ever, Kevin Clash is one of my favorite puppeteers ever. So I don’t even think I want to believe the accusations now facing him, that he had a sexual relationship with a minor. Kevin Clash is awesome and can do no wrong, dammit.

Happy 76th birthday, Jim Henson

Today is Jim Henson’s birthday… he would’ve been 76. The man redefined generations of kids’ entertainment and changed the world. There won’t be another Jim Henson for 100 generations.

Jerry Nelson, one of the original Muppeteers, dead at 78

Nelson’s credits on Muppets were generally supporting characters like Camilla the Chicken, Sgt. Floyd Pepper of Electric Mayhem or Lew Zealand. In Fraggle Rock he played the lead Fraggle, Gobo, and in Sesame Street he was Sherlock Hemlock, Count Von Count, and Mr. Snuffleupagus. This short list of more well known characters does little to illustrate the involvement he had with Jim Henson since the very beginning of the Muppets, and his more stand out characters took advantage of his singing voice. He was last heard as an announcer in 2011’s The Muppets.

The Muppets and the mayor of Boston versus Mike Huckabee and the WBC in the battle of Chick-Fil-A

Fast food chain Chick-Fil-A has never tried at all tried to hide their conservative Christian philosophy. They’re closed on Sundays, they hold frequent employee prayer sessions and the company contributes millions to conservative causes. But recently, as CEO Dan Cathay has become very vocal about his opposition to gay marriage, the lines have been drawn. One one side… the Muppets and the mayor of Boston. On the other… Mike Huckabee and the Westboro Baptist Church.
