The dead have risen ...
I was surprised to discover that Jim Henson, the famed creator of the Muppets and Fraggle Rock is still working hard ... twenty years after his death. According to the New Zealand media Jim Henson created the current, controversial Air New Zealand mascot, Rico, last year (2010).
This bit of information has been repeated in at least two articles.
So it's true ... the dead have risen and are working in advertising.
The problem seems to have been some overly judicious editing which has cut the complete phrase from "Jim Henson's Creature Workshop" in older references down to just "Jim Henson".
