Henson's Muppets: Where are they now?

As Sesame Street began its 39th season, some of its members, such as Cookie Monster, got off to a rocky start. Monster, 43, is best known for a 1998 episode in which he was admitted to an eating disorder clinic after being diagnosed with bulimia and depression.

Palin's Executive Experience

While many pundits have blamed Sarah Palin's lack of experience for John McCain's electoral defeat, locals in her hometown of Wasilla, AK have a differing view.

Titanic and ending hundreds of American lives. We are announcing a comprehensive plan to increase greenhouse emissions and melt down every last iceberg."

Obama Victory Robs Obama Supporter of Purpose

After spending his days watching CNN, reading political blogs, and actually meeting the man himself, even if only once, Alan Donahue, a former middle school English teacher, is utterly bored and purposeless now that Barack Obama is America's president.
"I was so excited when he won. That is, when we won," says Alan. "I was celebrating with all of my friends and got so excited that I got drunk. Well, I was actually alone, but I was still pretty drunk. Barack's election was still really exciting though."

IHOP Resists Apple Takeover

The International House of Pancakes has released a statement rejecting the proposed takeover by Apple Computers, appearing to halt Apple CEO Steve Jobs' obsession with controlling all things beginning with i.

Six Trillion Dollar Solution

The desperate state of America's economy was entirely repaired last night when Chairman of the Federal Reserve Ben Bernanke found six trillion dollars crumpled up beneath the cushions of his couch. The money was discovered when Bernanke attempted to retrieve a fallen peanut two hours into a Rush Hour marathon on TBS. Heroically overcoming the fear that the Dr.
