Hello Everybody! Editor-In-Chief Lee Houston, Junior here.
Ms. Waxy Dragon has the holiday weekend off, but did leave one joke she wants me to share with everyone.

Q. Why did the turkey cross the road?
If you ask the question before Thanksgiving, the answer is: To escape being Thanksgiving dinner.
If you ask the question after Thanksgiving, the answer is: To celebrate not being Thanksgiving dinner.

Either way, I hope the turkey looks both ways before it tries to cross the street.

In any event, I do have two comedy news items to report on.

Robin Williams will have an HBO special scheduled to air December 6.
Even if he just sat on a stool and read old grocery lists it would be hilarious. So I'm sure this event will be a laugh riot, although being on HBO, the content might not be suitable for all viewers.
Check your local listings for specific time and channel.

But something that is age appropriate for everyone is taking the Internet by storm! The Muppets have released their own version of the Queen classic Bohemian Rhapsody that is a big hit on YouTube and other web sites right now.
Starting off with Gonzo and a chicken chorus before Animal takes a beautiful solo turn in the spotlight, the video features Rowlf the Dog on piano and Doctor Teeth and the Electric Mayhem along to rock the house. The video features over 40 Muppets during the course of the song.
Here's hoping that those zany characters decide to do more music videos.

And if you want to see the Muppets version of this tune, while I do not know the legalities of including the video with this post as some websites have done, I have included a link for you to see it directly on the YouTube site at:

How's that for a holiday trifecta? Turkeys, Robin Williams, and Muppets!
Everyone take care and we'll be back next weekend with more Sunday Funnies!
