Yeah, wardrobe malfunctions can be fun.

#UnveilTheTail

(If you people don't get that, go watch the new Muppets series. It's gotten a lot better after the 'hiatus'/'reboot.' Still not as good as the old show they did in the theater, but they may not yet be done with the retooling. They're maintaining continuity with their early episodes, which were The Office reshot with puppets acting as people, so the reboot is happening 'in universe.' They already got Kermit and Piggy back together, and Fonzie is no longer dating that woman with the 'bear-hating' parents(1); it's beginning to feel like a good show at last.)

Notes:

  1. Still not sure if Fozzie was supposed to be the 'black guy dating Archie Bunker's daughter' or the 'Jew visiting an antisemite family,' but that subplot was as uncomfortable and unentertaining as someone putting on an old 'minstrel show' on national TV, and doing it straight, not subverting it to say "This is part of our collective history, from when we were too dumb to know better. We should not celebrate it, but we should not forget it either. We remember it so we know not to stoop so low again."

cruel and unusual....The real question is how long can the material be made to hold its temporary shape? Can it be kept cool that long? How do you plan on preventing premature operation (restoration of original length/shape)?

It does take us back to the Nitinol days. Whatever happened to engines made using Nitinol wire?
