This has been making the rounds pretty thoroughly, but I wanted to post oit for two reasons: 1) I wanted to give a shout-out to my pal and generally awesome guy and beard enthusiast Jesse Thompson, who first sent me the clip, and 2) I will take any and every opportunity to point out what a great fucking movie The Great Muppet Caper is. Easily Charles Grodin’s finest role, and I’m not convinced he wasn’t truely trying to fuck the Miss Piggy muppet.I’ll be back tomorrow with more E3 videos, so don’t feel you have to visit other websites or anything.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
