Stuffing the Passer - Tinker Tailor Soldier Sockface

So, first of all, you people are all heroes.

If you haven't heard, the Stuffing the Passer pledge drive obliterated its goal on day 4. That is, like, mind-blowingly incredible. We hemmed and hawed for a good long time about our fundraising target and worried about whether it was overambitious. So much for that!

We'll keep you updated on our capital improvements over the offseason once the dust settles, but needless to say the puppets are going to be in fighting trim come next season. We're really touched by the outpouring of support, and by how well this crowdfunding approach has gone. We're going to sort of treat this like Muppet Public Radio from here on out, working hard to produce some entertaining content for you fine people free of charge and advertisement-free and rely on the selfless kindness of our viewers to pitch into the tip jar now and again to keep our basic operating costs covered.

Programming note: we'll be on hiatus through the holiday season and on lockdown for the title game, gnawing our fingers and toes down to stubs in anxiety. After a week of R&R post-championship game, we'll bring you the season finale, which will consist largely of the lines you submitted in the donation drive. So, if you donated $25 or more and have not e-mailed your line to houserockbuilt-at-gmail-dot-com, be sure to send that over by let's say the Saturday after the championship game. Remember, there was some kind of error in the form, so if you typed your line into the box on the donation form, it did not get to us.

And with that, puppets:

What? Oh, no, this? This is for... nutrition. Yeah.
