Muppets as X-Men

From the fine folks at Blogads (as a very personal @ reply on Twitter, might I add) comes this link: The Curious Brain » X-muppets.



Animal & Beeker (Muppets) as Wolverine & Cyclops (X-Men)


I want to see more. I’m thinking either Bunsen Honeydew or Kermit the Frog as Professor X. Gonzo as Nightcrawler and Sweetums as Beast seem pretty straight forward as well.

Related: I really need to install a Tumblr-style theme for this blog. I want to continue to publish via WordPress but give a more Tumblr experience. Anyhow, whatever.

Newt Gingrich: Clowning Around for the Presidency

Thanks to my former neighbor and all-around creative guy Ben Prisk for this incredibly accurate portrayal of Newt Gingrich: Presidential Candidate Clown.

Happy (Early) Campaign Season!

I should point out that I once shook Newt’s cold, clammy hand on the campaign trail. He was vying for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. I was browsing CDs at Town Center Mall and he urged myself and a friend to “have our parents vote” for him.

Even creepier now that I reflect on that exchange. Gross.
