I am not a muppet hater.
I think the muppets are Teh Awesome. I grew up watching the show, and then watched the new version when I was a student. I went to see Muppet Treasure Island at the cinema when I was 19, for fuck sake.
I just think it is lame to listen to Kermit the Frog on your iPod. Especially when you’ve never even seen the show! Mad Hatter obviously agrees, or why would she put Kermy at the top of her list of, and I quote, “shitty crap music [that] is on my iPod”?
And as for the fact that muppets is UK slang for idiots? Not my fault, dude. Just reporting a fact. If you’d ever heard Newcastle United fans singing “sixty thousand muppets” to the Manchester United fans in their own stadium, you would know this.
Anyway. To prove my love for the muppets, here’s a classic clip with John Cleese.
ARE YOU HAPPY NOW, MINIONS??!!
On the original thread I also mentioned Peter Jackson’s finest hour, Meet the Feebles. Here’s a taster. Rent this movie today, it is AWESOME.
Would anyone like to volunteer to be one of my minions? Might come in handy…
