The Daily Word in clueless celebrities, incarcerated muppets and the fate of Jimmy Hoffa

By Ty Bannerman [ Wed Jun 19 2013 9:14 AM ]
The Daily Word

According to the EPA, tailings from abandoned uranium mines have left nearby residents in Grants and Milan exposed to harmful levels of airborne radiation.

In related news, Mt. Taylor may soon be home to the world's largest uranium mine, bringing much needed revenue to the state. And also probably cancer.

Just because they show up armed with semiautomatic weapons, a "fleet" of cop cars and an Army helicopter doesn't mean you have to let them in.

Harsh three-strikes laws now extended to muppets.

Serena Williams offers her opinion on the Steubenville rape survivor and also reminds everyone that you can be both good at tennis and a clueless moron who probably shouldn't offer her opinion on the Steubenville rape survivor.

This just in: Jimmy Hoffa is still missing.

The Muppets And Big Blue

By John Bee [ Wed Jun 2 2010 7:20 PM ]

Before Sesame Street or The Muppet Show ever came into being, Jim Henson worked in advertising. In the late 60's, IBM contracted with him to create a series of short films starring Muppets, designed to both break the ice at meetings and educate IBM staff about the systems and technology their company sold. Some very early versions of the Cookie Monster and Kermit the Frog are present, and though they're prototypes, many of the gags are the pure gold you'd expect from Henson.
