I was on Facebook, once again trying to stay away from anything remotely important or relevant to the universe, when up comes this on Facebook News.
Kermit the Frog: Muppet Announces Split With Partner Miss Piggy Tuesday
OMG. First it was announced that Will Smith and his wife were breaking up and peeps were crying until Will said, “No we totally aren’t breaking up cause she’s my queen – that’s what you told me to say, right, honey?” – and then everything was well in the world again. And then we hear about Muppets breaking up. This was a huge surprise because I didn’t even know they had an actual relationship. I sort of thought it was just light-hearted stalking and sexual harassment on the part of Miss Piggy since Kermit never did seem that interested in crossing the species boundary like she was. Not with so many other frogs in the sea.
Yet here it is – the end of a couple / ongoing court case. Some are speculating that this is a publicity stunt for their upcoming TV show. I’m not sure why they’d make a TV show since most of the Muppet movies lately have bombed (Hint: do not use that guy from How I Met Your Mother in any movie. He sucks.) If they want success, they should just head back to Sesame Street. Kermit could report the news like old times. Maybe they’d find love again. I hear Telly Monster (the one who used to be pathologically obsessed with television but that wasn’t cool since Sesame Street figured out they were a TV show, so now is pathologically obsessed with triangles) is single. So is Cookie Monster, though he might eat furniture. Or possibly Miss Piggy herself, since he is branching out his diet. And then there is Big Bird, but he still hasn’t been able to leave the nest, plus he has the mind of a six-year-old and imagined his friend so hard that everyone else got to see him too (Snuffaluffagus could be a candidate on the other hand).
You might be wondering why I am reporting on this news since it was announced yesterday already and everyone is is anyone already knew about it. It certainly has nothing to do with me dragging my feet on my Disney Hunger Games story. It really is happening – we have the gruesome pictures for you and everything (cleaned up for families cause this is Disney). But there was the problem of bad lighting, leaves, and laziness. Don’t you worry three or four fans of mine, you’ll soon see who gets axed – er – who bites the big one first. You will also have the opportunity to send aid to your favorite characters, just like in the real Hunger Games. You know like water, or forest animals, or an all powerful genie, whatever. You just can’t miss this stuff! Heck, maybe Miss Piggy will make an appearance. You know what an attention hog she is.
Well that’s all I have for now. Be sure to read the article – and the comments – on the Huffpo article I linked to because as usual, the comments section is more amusing than the article. Especially the people who argue with people that Kermit and Piggy are Muppets and how stupid are they that they don’t realize this news is fake, huh? Fat lot they know. Kermit and Piggy are totally real. I grew up with them on my television set. Everything on television is real.
I feel like some bacon now.
I’m glad that there aren’t any children involved.
What would they be? Froglets? Pogs?
I bet they would be fugly.
A prog? With plural “progress”, as in “making progress”?
Lots and lots of progress. Should use some form of prog control.
Maybe Kermit has developed a taste for extra crispy bacon.
OMG, pogs… *snort*
I assume the dealbreaker was Kermit’s habit of snatching food from the dinner table with his long tongue while sitting on a couch watching tv.
That is a mental image I cannot unsee. Thanks for that.
I added another. Enjoy.
Not to mention just eating bacon right in front of her. Of course her squealing every time a joke was told on TV would have to have done him in too. That and her multiple instances of leaping on him and breaking his frog legs.
Kermit and Miss Piggy could have adopted. Maybe Kermit’s, his parents never seemed to be around. Still, it’s a shame, if not exactly surprising.
Kermit’s nephew, that is.
I remember Kermit had an obnoxious little nephew named Robin, I think. Because I remember the important crap.
In other news, Zombie Jim Henson has emerged from the grave to eat what little brains there are of the idiots who have run his franchise into the ground since his death 25 years ago.
That sounds about right.
Maybe they finally realised that day-glow green doesn’t work with pink… 😉
It’s just plain tacky!
Completely. Although I suspect if the Kardashithings did out a room in those colours, or wore that combination, it would become very popular. Ew.
