Miss Piggy and Kermit: Split (….again)
The Internet had a MELTDOWN yesterday after it was announced that KERMIT THE FROG and MISS PIGGY are breaking up. Here’s their official statement:
“After careful thought, thoughtful consideration and considerable squabbling, we have made the difficult decision to terminate our romantic relationship.
“We will continue to work together on television and in all media now known or hereafter devised, in perpetuity, throughout the universe.
“However, our personal lives are now distinct and separate, and we will be seeing other people, pigs, frogs, et al. This is our only comment on this private matter . . . unless we get the right offer. Thank you for your understanding.”
Of course, this was all done to promote the new “Muppets” series that’s airing on ABC this fall. They even discussed it during a Television Critics Association panel yesterday.
Kermit said, quote, “It can be tough to work with your ex . . . especially when your ex is a pig. I don’t know whether any of you have ever dated pigs.” He also said he’s dating a NEW pig named Denise, who works in marketing at ABC.
Miss Piggy added, quote, “Dating moi is like flying close to the sun. It was inevitable that Kermit would drop down to the ground while I stayed in the heavens.”
People are losing it on Twitter. But what none of them seem to realize is that Kermit and Miss Piggy BREAK UP ALL THE TIME. Watch ANY MUPPET MOVIE EVER.
At the beginning, they’re off again, and by the end, they’re on again. They’ve done this more times than John Mayer and Katy Perry. Calm down, people.
