There are some sick people out there.

Honestly, I'm still haunted by the scene of Kermit going down on Fozzie in that Kermit version of "Hurt," so much so that had they replaced the Sesame Street videos with Muppet Porn, the therapy bills would be through the roof!

Sesame Street's YouTube channel hacked, replaced with porn

Sesame Street had its YouTube channel hacked on Sunday, and its highly popular child-friendly videos of muppets like Kermit the frog and the Big Bird replaced with something far less savoury: Hard core porn movies.

What would Bert and Ernie say? The truth of the matter is that the channel is regularly visited by young children, and parents trust that the page will be safe for them to view.

The NSFW content was available for all the world to see for approximately 20 minutes, before the channel was suspended for "repeated or severe violations of our Community Guidelines."

You have to wonder what was going through the mind of whoever hacked Sesame Street's YouTube page.

Aside from uploading pornographic videos, the hackers also changed the Sesame Street's channel profile on YouTube:

WHO DOESN'T LOVE PORN KIDS? RIGHT! EVERYONE LOVES IT! IM MREDXWX AND MY PARTNER MRSUICIDER91 ARE HERE TO BRING YOU MANY NICE CONTENT! PLEASE DON'T LET SESAME STREET TO GET THIS ACCOUNT BACK KIDS :( PLEASE...LET ME AND MRSUICIDER91 HAVE IT AND WE GONNA MAKE ALL THE AMERICA HAPPY!

Now, if it really was YouTube user "MrEdxwx" who hacked the Sesame Street account you would have to suggest he go back to his first day at school, because it would be remarkably silly to leave a message telling the world that he was the perpetrator.

"MrEdxwx" is clearly feeling the heat, however, as he has decided to upload a video denying any involvement in the hack.

Precisely how Sesame Street's YouTube channel got hacked is presently a mystery - but it's natural to assume that they were sloppy with their password security.

This one has to have the staff of The Onion feeling outright pwned right now:

MC Hammer launching his own search engine

(CNN) -- You can't Google this.

OK, maybe you can. But MC Hammer doesn't want you to.

The venerable rapper, who helped usher hip-hop into the pop mainstream in the early '90s, has rolled out a search engine he hopes will outperform Google, Bing and other established tools.

The project, called WireDoo, has been two years in the making, said Hammer (real name Stanley Burrell) Wednesday at the Web 2.0 summit in San Francisco.

At the conference, he said what will make his search tool better than Google (or, too legit to quit, if you will) will be its "deep search" ability.

"It's about relationships beyond just the keywords," he said, according to Mashable, a CNN.com content partner.

The rapper-turned-entrepreneur (after some late-90s difficulties) said a search would render not just direct results, but also information on possibly related topics. Its tagline is: "Search once and see what's related."

Other details about the product were scarce.

WireDoo, which Hammer said he has a team developing, is still in pre-beta. Its website is currently letting people sign up to test the search engine when a beta release is ready.

Worst California biker feud in decade erupted at Starbucks

This is the best part:

""It was all about who would be allowed to hang out at the Starbucks downtown," Santa Cruz Deputy Police Chief Steve Clark said."

... and...

""He added: "Only in Santa Cruz would you have biker wars over who's going to control pumpkin spice lattes.""



This begs the question, will the next Starbucks CD feature the song 'Born To Be Wild'?




Biker Cat says, "Make mine a pumpkin spice latte."

i heard this during my morning commute:

"ARI SHAPIRO, host: Good morning. I'm Ari Shapiro. An unnamed actress is suing Amazon.com for more than a million dollars. The alleged offense? Revealing her age. Amazon owns the Internet Movie Database, or IMDB. That's the website that posted the offending number. The lawsuit says the actress is many years older than she looks, and her lawyers say it will hurt her career if she is, quote, "perceived to be over the hill" - i.e., approaching 40. It's MORNING EDITION."

always have been curious about iggy . . . is it just old age or did he live a fast life of booze/drugs/and what not, that made him look the way he does now?
