"Well, sure, if you post here that there's some interesting news posted at MC, then, yeah, it's my job as a responsible Muppet journalist to bite the bullet and go and read MC.

But I don't do it for recreational purposes, and I don't inhale." Danny 656.7

Sung to the tune of "HAPPINESS HOTEL"
"You’ve finally found those figures
One day in your local store
You whip out your used credit card
Then rush right out the door
At home you tear open the packing
And then things do not seem well
Well welcome all, to “MUPPET FIGURE HELL!”
First you undo all those twist-ties
Then you blurt out “What the F—K?”
You try to move the arms and legs
But all the limbs are stuck!
And the paint hasn’t quite dried yet
And it has this funny smell
Well welcome all, to “MUPPET FIGURE HELL!”
Now the Kermit’s leaning over till his face touches the floor
The Bunsen feels real sticky and
Teeth’s hat falls off once more
And the Piggy-HA! Forget it! It doesn’t look like her too well!!
Well, welcome all to “MUPPET FIGURE HELL!”
Look! There’s a splice! Look! There’s a spew!
If they screwed these figures up this much, Dear God help series two!
They got every kind of paint-splotch
They got every kind of smear
But they’re still the best-looking figures that we’ve ever seen appear!
As to how the others come out
We just hope they’ll break the spell
And get us out of “MUPPET FIGURE HELL!”
Please rescue us.. FROM “ MUPPET FIGURE HELL!!” Smig 662.1

"I was having visions of invisible Muppets (trickier than it sounds) showing up on eBay. Buyer: "But the package appears empty." Seller: "That's because it's the all new must have Exclusive Invisible Emperor Penguin from Muppet Classic Theater's Emperor's New Clothes!" "
Travis 681.6

Muppet anagrams by Danny:
"The Great Muppet Caper = Purge cheap re-attempt
The Muppets Take Manhattan = Amen! That ham kept apt tunes.
The Muppet Christmas Carol = Much atmospheric splatter" 694.1 (funn-ee thread)

"Wow. Somehow seeing Baby Bear's disembodied head for sale is both morbid AND satisfying at the same time. " Smig 696.16

"Yeah, and as usual, Republicans choose the most amazing targets to pick on -- sick people and Elmo. Well done.
Next, they'll courageously take on the impending threat of bunnies, crossing guards and people with head injuries. " Danny 699.4

"It's got an intelligent metal-eating space weed, and that's got to count for something. "
Danny 701.3

"I always thought that if there's one SS character likely to give you inappropriate diseases it must be Elmo. You just don't know where he's been... " Julia 702.4
