I would like to share a traumatic event from my childhood. I vividly remember seeing a skit on the Muppet Show that simultaneously fascinated and traumatized me. It originally aired in 1976 and I don't know if I saw it then, when I was 3, or a year or two later in reruns - but I know I only saw it once, and in black and white. It made such an impact on me I still remember it in detail. In fact I was beginning to wonder if it was real or if I was just making it all up.

I finally found it tonight. And I found it with this search term:

"muppet show vending machine takes your face"

Now that I've seen it again, and I know that it's real, I'm not sure I'm going to sleep tonight. When I close my eyes I will see that muppet WITH NO FACE.
