Alright, we joked the folks at NPR, so we may as well break the internet with a few of our own public radio mugs while we’re at it. Now, we used a very special camera to take these pictures, mind you: The Henson H915. It reveals your inner Muppet or Sesame Street character. We hope that once you’ve seen these pictures that you’ll find us a). cute and/or b). take pity on us. Either way, we hope you’ll think about all the great things in your life that have been made possible by public media and become a member or renew during our Fall 2011 fund drive. Thank you!
