How timely considering this post and my own question regarding a biography/history. Yay!

Spell check is your friend. Unless "newist" is a joke I'm not getting.

Is it really true that they smuggled drugs into the UK inside the muppets?-- ...As they celebrated their new project, and discussed ideas for the forthcoming shows, they are said to have carefully removed from the heads of their Muppets a generous supply of the best psychedelic drugs the West Coast had to offer. Dr Teeth and The Electric Mayhem were devoted to prime West Coast marijuana while Kermit, apparently, had the acid. ...

Speaking of the Muppets, I caught some stupid animal video show yesterday and it was filled with Muppets on the show. They kept plugging their new Wizard of Oz remake. But the weird thing was how obviously different the voices of the characters are. Not so much Animal, but Miss Piggy and Kermit.

That is one of the commonist spelling mistakes around.

viomeda, don't worry about it--pointing out a spelling mistake is not what most of us care about.
