A Post that Ends in an Infomercial

Sesame Street is going to make a Mad Men parody!  I can’t tell you how excited this makes me!  (Almost as excited as this!)

In other Muppet news, Count Von Count is now following me on Twitter.  I am amused.

How Different People Spend Their Day.

Now that I’ve moved home and found that I have saved absolutely everything, I’ve decided to sell some of the junk great stuff taking up room in my house.  If you’re interested in either of these great package deals, please, let me know in the comments.  TMN readers get a special price and home delivery, where applicable.  As the weeks of my unemployment wear on, stay tuned for more exciting shopping opportunities.

Things You’ve Already Seen on the Internet

Kelly Hildebrandt to wed Kelly Hildebrandt.

Palin’s resignation speech, edited by Vanity Fair.

The world’s most crowded swimming pool?

From this week’s news:

Politicians in NYC must speak Yiddish.

This guy is running for his father’s seat in an effort to eliminate the position

Another reason to love Target.

This guy is awesome.  Just look at his picture:

Good Links to Start Your Monday

Although most of you probably have no idea what I’m talking about, I’m bummed that CBS radio is getting rid of their “chirp.” Thanks, Dan, Dan, The Weatherman!

101 Muppets of Sesame Street!!!!  And it’s interactive!

Behind the scenes with the video editor at “The Daily Show.”

A guy drives a Tesla in NYC and gets lots of attention…from men.

Frank Rich on the Sotomayor hearings.

Bo’s thoughts on his time in the White House.

The Onion: New Live Poll Allows Pundits to Pander to Viewers In Real Time

Ridiculous Frisbee action flick.  (According to Manzell, this is a real movie…)

LOLTatz.  Lots of poor life decisions there.

This is old, but Terrapins are not just dangerous on the football field.

Store review!  Marni, on E 67th Street.  Describing the clothing:

“If Jackie Chan was in a screwball fight sequence that took place in a wealthy retirement community and he jumped down a Salvation Army donation chute, this is the stuff he would fly out wearing. It’s senile-fabulous: sporty, loud, intentionally clashing and slightly clownish. Much of it can and should be accessorized with white golf shoes and a Phyllis Diller wig.”

Happy Belated Bastille Day

Umpires v. Judges.

Coffee cups in NYC. (Mom and Dad, you’ll enjoy this one.)

Frank Rich on Sarah Palin.

A store review for a store where I’ve actually shopped!  Here’s a lovely quote from the review:

“If you were to secretly dose the celebrated Japanese artist Takashi Murakami with LSD, spin him around in a swivel chair, bounce him on a trampoline, then repeatedly hit him over the head with a piñata, the interior of this store would be his hallucination.”

To shock no one, this story on ‘energy shots’ focuses on College Park, Maryland.

A look back on a decade of SpongeBob SquarePants.

Monkeys can recognize poor grammar! (Thanks, Lauren!)

NPR on tourists.

Newspapers cutting out crossword puzzles?!?!  Sad face! (This has been all over my twitter feed, but I did read it first in the Times, so I am not going to attribute it to anyone.  Sorry.)

The “Real World” DC crew looks VERY young.  Does this mean I’m old?

We’re so classy that we go to an art museum one day, and a few weeks later, Bergdorf uses its art in its windows.

I went to this game with my parents, and I think you should all read about the crowd cheering “We want the apple!”

WooHoo Wednesday Times!

Refugee gets adopted by doctor, but can’t find a good pickup game in California!

A Times editorial about undocumented students who deserve the chance to get an education.

Recovering alcoholics in the food and drink industry.

Another example of why abstinence education does not work.

Dear New York Times, Do not piss off us puzzle-doers.  We are very powerful and subscribe to newspapers to do our puzzles on real paper.  Also, do not let the Wall Street Journal beat you to the story.  Love, Puzzle-Doers.

Fake “Made in India” products actually made in Nigeria.

No Tuesday Times Update…

…Because someone stole my newspaper.  Grrr.

In other news…(Mostly via Jezebel)

Richard Nixon saw interracial pregnancy as grounds for abortion.

Obviously, the girl with 56 face tattoos asked for them and lied when her dad freaked out.

NPR asks for more movies about renegade toys.

Iceland argues that commercial whaling can coexist with whale watching.  Erm, as long as we’re not watching the whales getting slaughtered?

American Apparel introduces shiny kids’ leggings.  Ew.

Yay!  A bad review of the Armani restaurant in The New Yorker.  Fashion restaurants seem to be a bad idea to me even if they’re good (unless they’re in real department stores…).

AARP has a spelling bee!

From Lauren: The 10 Dumbest Moments in “Wheel of Fortune” History.  (I disagree with their rankings.)

Muppets, Crocs, Echidnas and Other Wildlife

You’ve probably all seen this by now, but it wouldn’t be TMN, if I didn’t post the link tying my two favorite television shows together: 30 Rock is a rip off of The Muppet Show. (Thanks, Matt and Lauren, who both sent it to me within an hour.)

Hermes is breeding its own crocodiles to keep up with demand for handbags.

A great story about a librarian who immigrated to our country.

This is one crazy animal.  Look at him!

If I was easily embarrassed, I would not post this link.  But I love Guess Who.

Obviously, something like this would happen at my alma mater. 

This is absolutely heartbreaking, but important to read.  (Thanks, Kelaine.)
