This is a funny one because I have been watching old episodes of the Muppet Show. The only relevant content I have is to remark that in Seasons 1-2 the "audience" shots didn't show quite as large of an auditorium, just a dozen or so Muppets in seating rows. There was a hidden creep factor--the ones in the back didn't move at all. Just blank stares. It is the row for Muppets who have been exorcised.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Ironically, I am currently reading Larry Niven's Inferno. Which is a modern (or it WAS modern when it was written in the 70s) retelling of Dante's version.
A good one.

Every read The Flying Sorcerers?

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

Fun fact.

Clint Eastwood's first onscreen appearance was an uncredited role as a lab assistant in Revenge of the Creature.

Have you seen A Cure for Wellness?

I liked it. It's got a Lovecraftian vibe to it.
