Jim Henson is the majestic master behind the Muppets. In addition to building that whimsical world, which allowed him to troll around with colorful puppets, he had an equally mystical beard. In short, he embodies everything I love. I'm also pretty sure he died of Toxic Shock Syndrome,That's the disease mentioned on the back of tampon boxes that scares the hell out of pubescent girls worldwide. What a life he led!
