    I can't remember if this was Cold Stone or Marble Slab, but I was looking at a Signature Creations list for one of those two ice cream shops, and one of the creations was labeled as "Cookie Minster" and it had something with mint and either cookie dough or Oreo cookies. :insatiable:

    I've been watching a lot of MST3K, and I never realized how many Muppet and Jim references there are. Some are really obscure too, which proves they were superfans. I found a complete list of them on the wiki too!

    Old, I know, but so awesome!

    Yes, MST3K was such an influence on me when growing up, I love that show... But not the $60 for the DVD volumes Shout Factory keeps releasing.

    Anyway... Anybody watch The Soup on E! On this week's episode there's a sketch where Ken John (SP?) from Community's posing as George Clooney to get a date with Access Hollywood's María Menunos (SP?)
    At one point, he calls her "María Mahnamahna". Only us Mupfans got that sadly.

    This was from something my dad was watching on Netflix just now:

    "Name one jazz musician"
    "Dr. Teeth"
    "He's a Muppet"
    "He's a jazz Muppet"

    Just now on Jeopardy, there was a category called "Cookie Monster Review Novel", and the host was reading the clues in a bad Cookie Monster impression. :D:insatiable::crazy:

    My sister was watching Icarly and I overheard them say, "BoogieBear Takes Manhattan"...
  12. For you wrestling fans: Backstage reporter Maria talked to Chris Jericho about his band called Fozzie, and Maria said something about is Kermit and Miss Piggy in it too.

    When he got his star on the Walk of Fame a few years back, Vince McMahon compared himself to Kermit the Frog.

    The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy had an episode where a Oscar the Grouch type character makes a cameo.

    I don't know if anybody's mentioned this yet, but in the film version of "Dragnet" with Tom Hanks and Dan Akroyd, as they chase after someone in their car, they run into a bunch of stuffed animals that the bad guy knocked over and Dan's character says, "Look out, Muppets!"

    Just now on Cash Cab (or that's what the listing said it was...), they had a question along the lines of, "Which 1980's Jim Henson TV show featured Doozers and Gorgs?" :excited::coy::busy:

    In Mad Mag there was a tell-the-difference-between-these-two-New Moon-posters or something like that. On the opposite poser Count was behind Edward. They called him "The Scariest Vapire That Ever Lived"

    On an episode of a new version of Password (hosted by Regis Philbin), one of the words William Shatner was supposed to guess was "Kermit". He didn't get it right- he actually said "Hermit". Maybe people just don't hear the "K" or something, but come on- it's Kermit the (F-R-O-G) :mad:Frog!:)

    On this vlog, an anime reviewer is griping about some Naruto episodes and complains about how blatant some of the plot exposition ignorance is ... and he ends up suggesting that he prefers when Fozzie just gives the EM the script in TMM.
  19. I did in my first post here.

    On Jeopardy last night, there was a category about vampires and a clue said something about "Sesame Street's own vampire" or something like that. Of course, it's The Count von Count and Alex said that The Count was his favorite! Who knew?
