I’m telling you, just before he died, Jim Henson went back to VSI to complete the final stage of his evolution. He projected himself into the mainframe computer and became PURE ENERGY. How else can you explain this almost daily influx of Henson-based videos and mash-ups? I mean besides the internet’s intense passion for anything that combines nostalgia with contemporary pop culture? If you take that out of the equation the only possible explanation is that Jim Henson is the Lawnmower Man. It’s called “Gabe’s Razor,” which is the general principle that “all things being equal, the solution where someone is Lawnmower Man is best.”
