And here is a Valentine joke for you cornballs.
Q. What did one pickle say to the other pickle.
A. You mean a great dill to me.
To honor Jim Henson’s 75th birthday on September 24, 2011, The Jim Henson Company and Google partnered up to create a special Google logo with six original characters, corresponding in shape and size with the “Google” lettering, that the users could puppeteer themselves. Using a mouse and/or a keyboard, the characters would look up, down, and sideways, and open and close their mouths.
Each monster does their own little animation when you click on them or the button below them which is pretty neat, but they all do something unexpected as well. While I was playing with it today I saw the little monster on the right eat the green worm looking monster, totally was NOT expecting that interaction.
The doodle was made through the collaboration between Google and the Jim Henson Company, using the Henson Digital Puppetry Studio, which prides its “immediate real-time performance of 3-D generated characters by a puppeteering system.”
There have been many Sesame Street and Muppet Google Doodle images over the years, the last one being the one pictured below which was on the Google search page on November 10, 2009.

Did you know Theodor Seuss Geisel, aka Dr. Seuss, would have been 107 years old today? He would have been so cool to talk to, don’t you think? And like a good man should, he thanked his Mom for his awesomeness. His mother, Henrietta Seuss Geisel, often soothed her children to sleep by “chanting” rhymes remembered from her youth. Ted credited his mother with both his ability and desire to create the rhymes for which he became so well known. :)
Did you know Dr. Seuss’ works accumulated two Academy Awards, two Emmys, a Peabody and a Pulitzer? The man rocked in so many ways, but in the way he was the best was in touching the hearts of so many people around the world with his imagination.
In honor of this great man here is are some trading cards you can download and print out, you should your card stock if you have any available:
And here is a fantastic Green Eggs and Ham coloring page to print out and color:
At the time of his death on September 24, 1991, Ted had written and illustrated 44 children’s books, including four of the 10 best-selling children’s books of all time, including “The Cat in the Hat;” “Green Eggs and Ham;” “One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish;” and “Hop on Pop.”
