Jesse Angelo Purchases Muppet Mansion

Jesse Angelo, Editor-in-Chief of The Daily, has purchased the famous “Muppet Mansion,” according to The New York Observer. The property is named that because it was home to the creator of the Muppets, Jim Henson, for many years.

How much did Angelo pay? About $23 million, or almost as much as The Daily’s budget, the Daily Intel smartly points out.

It sounds like a lot of money, so that got FishbowlNY thinking, what could have possibly persuaded Angelo to sign the deed? We investigated for two whole minutes and finally came up with an answer: Angelo is getting a Muppet in his likeness as part of the deal.

Totally worth it, if you ask us.
