When Muppet-creator Jim Henson died in 1990, his wife Jane was asked to relate a memorable moment about him.  She chose to tell a story about a family trip to Italy and a visit to the Sistine Chapel.  As they all looked at Michelangelo's work, Henson said to his assembled clan, "Only a hack would have had the fingers touch."
