KLRPHNX, Coosbane (AP) May 16 -- The Coosbane High Command today claimed responsibility for the death of Muppets creator Jim Henson. Said General Lord High Tooter Fpmmm: ``The opening salvo in our Coosbanian Jihad has been fired, and has claimed its intended victim. Chief Scientist Wnarpx's Stealth Pneumonia bacteria proved most efficacious in eliminating this thorn in the side of Coosbane society. Never again will our civilization be held up to ridicule by the likes of the evil Henson. Never again...'' (the General had intended to continue speaking, but at this point he metamorposed into an angry-looking puddle of strawberry jam). In a related story, long-time Henson collaborator Frank ``Wizard of'' Oz has apparently had his personality transplanted into Rowlf, the harmless, piano-playing dog, and was last seen auditioning as the replacement for Spuds ``sure I'm ugly, but look at the girls I get!'' MacKenzie, currently in jail on a morals charge.
