muppets vs. muppets

Muppets Kermit & Miss Piggy Respond To Charges By Fox News Muppets

It is important that you watch this crucial Fox News Business report on the evil of the beloved Muppets, even if you already saw this clip in December. Why? Because the Muppets have finally responded to these treasonous charges, at a press conference — Miss Piggy even did a SMACKDOWN on the Fox News idiots. It’s a good thing Fox News viewers are all 67-year-old white trash sitting in their soon-to-be repo’d double-wides, because otherwise they would probably stop buying Muppet toys and movies!

Here, from some fancy hotel meeting room, is the press conference from Thursday:

    Your move, Fraggle Rock …

      Today, we are all Doozers.

  • MrFizzy

    I would so totally love to put my fist up Meghan Kelly's ass and make her talk in a squeaky voice.

    • Baconzgood

      Is their room enough for a fist up there? I mean, her head is pretty big.

    • NewtsChicknNeck

      sadly, among the righties, it's mostly just limbaugh and his ilk offering to let someone–anyone–do that. see also, Hicks, Bill, Rant in E Minor (recorded in 1992-93) but describing limbaugh to a tee. true then, true 20 years later. RIP, Bill.

      p.s. that record is absolutely fucking amazing in its prescience and (sadly) maintained relevance. you'd think we would've gotten over and long forgotten all the scat-munchers that bothered Hicks back when Clinton was just a lovable still somewhat lefty rabble-rouser and Pres.O was a 2nd year lawyer.

    • Lionel[redacted]Esq

      Bill O'Reilly beat you to it.

        It was bloodhound-impersonator Brit Hume, according the rumors.

      Pigs: Possible Ties to Saul Alinsky and the Radical Socialist Left?

      • Sparky MacGyver

        A bit off topic, but… Newt Gingrich goes on about "Saul Alinsky", who died before "The Six Million Dollar Man" came on the air… and he calls people like ME "elites" who are "out of touch"???

        • heathenette

          Who the hell is Saul Alinsky?

  • larryfinexx

    I'd like to get a Miss Piggy puppet for my left hand.

  • savethispatient

    Of course the difference between a Fox News anchor and a Muppet is that one is a puppet who says whatever their handler wants, no matter how ridiculous or factually incorrect… and the other is a Muppet.

    • savethispatient

      PS: WOKKA WOKKA WOKKA!

    • Biel_ze_Bubba

      Or, as put by the best YouTube comment in years:

      The difference between The Muppets and FOX News is that one has an unseen hand up their ass putting words in their mouths that make normal people laugh all the time, and the other has Kermit and Miss Piggy.

  • http://hong-kong-actresses.blogspot.com/ donner_froh

    Nice touch of the shadow looming behind Kermit during his delivery. Must be an implicit endorsement of Sharia Law in Oklahoma.

  • comrad_darkness

    My god, the puppets are smarter than the news media.

    • Nothingisamiss

      Now with video.

    • GOPCrusher

      You know your life has taken a turn for the worst when you are dissed by a puppet. And it has more credibility.

  • DaRooster

    Talking frogs are science… and you know about that science stuff.

  • comrad_darkness

    I would love to see Miss Piggy doing a Haiiiiya! on Gretta van Susteren.

    • MrFizzy

      I don't want to see anything doing anything on or near GVS.

    • YasserArraFeck

      Looks like Gretta has already taken a few Haiiiiya!s to the face

  • philpjfry

    Maybe the muppets should pick on somebody at least as smart as they are. No fair picking on the Terminaly stupid. Fuck you fox news fuck you all to hell

    • http://www.storycorner.us/ JustPixelz

      Hello? Muppets are made of felt and ping-pong balls. While Fox is made of … OH WAIT … never mind.

  • nounverb911

    Megan Kelly kissed a muppet frog when she was a kid and look what she turned into.

    • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

      In Kelly's defense, the local pedophile put Kermit in his lap

  • edgydrifter

    I've always suspected Rupert Murdoch might be a plucked skeksis.

    • WhatTheHolyHeck

      Bill O'Reilly IS Fizzgig.

  • Baconzgood

    Maniacal laugh, maniacal laugh, maniacal laugh.

    • CivicHoliday

    I'd rather sit my kid in front of a ten-hour loop of nothing but Beaker meeping than two fucking minutes of Fox News drivel.

    • Fare la Volpe

      They'd at least get some culture out of it.

  • Baconzgood

    DAMN. You know you're a shit "news" station when a plush toy just pwned you.

    To make Sesame Street more Fair and Balanced they should probably include a, "Go Fuck Yourself", "It's all Mine!" and, "It Sucks to be You" Muppets.

    • Baconzgood

      They did. It's called Ron Paul.

    • Lionel[redacted]Esq

      "Mittens the Kitten" the 1% Muppet.

      Sharing is communism!

      BANANA SPLITS LIBEL!

    • http://www.wonkette.com smokefilledroommate

      Fox prefers no public television.

    • Generation[redacted]

      Fox prefers the Mattel Toys Hersheys Chocobot Hour.

    • Loaded_Pants

      Well, they were definitely never fans of Square One Television because, as we all know, they really hate math. It's sooo hard!

  • OkieDokieDog

    Poor brainwashed children of America…. and I'm talking about the bible thumpers kids.

  • SorosBot

    Since the Muppets got their big break educating children on Sesame Street, and as Rick Santorum has told us education is just liberal brainwashing, it's no wonder that they are a bunch of Fox-hating commies!

  • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

    I just got this tweet from the @SwedishChef:

    Hurdaver, da hurdaver, da @FOXNews fullashit. BORK! BORK BORK!"

  • Beowoof

    I can't get over how Fox feels threatened by a talking frog and talking pig. Well maybe I can, I feel threatened by Laura Ingrahm and she is a talking horse.

    • http://www.wonkette.com smokefilledroommate

      And Megyn Kelly is a talking cunt.

      • http://www.vinoverve.com Maman

        It comes with the spelling of her name. gyn

        • bagofmice

          That must be hysterical.

    • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

      Hey, Laura! Why the long face?

    • SorosBot

      The talking pig Fox prefers is Rush Limbaugh.

      • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

        Oddly, they borrow each other's clothes…

  • Goonemeritus

    With 120 million viewers world wide you don’t want to mess with Sesame Street. Fox News may be trying to punch up here but history shows Sesame Street will rip your lungs out.

  • ElPinche

    Ms. Piggy is hot. I'd pork the bacon out of that swine. Is that sexist?

    I love that they get so damn upset over 'Tex Richman'.

  • Baconzgood

    Today's show was brought to you by the letters F U and the # 50 Times over.

    • Loaded_Pants

      "One, two, three, four, five, six, seven! That's seven fucks not given that day! Ah! Ah! Ah!'

  • NewtsChicknNeck

    seeing how the primaries have gone, Statler and/or Waldorf are the two best and most electable republicans this year.

    • Generation[redacted]

      Don't underestimate Oscar the Grouch and his ability to appeal to the base.

      • Loaded_Pants

        Lives in a trash can, hoards trash, has a pet worm & is a misanthrope. That sounds about right.

      240 dollars worth of pistachio ham pudding?

    • bagofmice

      A lime based version of these events, as opposed to a series of more Lemony ones.

    • bagofmice

      A punchline.

    • GOPCrusher

      Rancid ham?

    • rocktonsam

      Jan Brewer?

  • BaldarTFlagass

    Hell, I bet even Beany and Cecil could fuck Fox's shit up.

    • ThundercatHo

      What did Beany's girlfriend say?

  • Baconzgood

    And Faux points out that Jon Stewart gave an interview to muppets in 5..4..3…

    • Biff

      I never get tired of pointing out to them that Comedy Central is funny on purpose, unlike Fox "News".

  • Joshua Norton

    Occupy Sesame Street!!!

  • James Michael Curley

    Some day DVD's of "The Muppet Show" from the early 1980's will be made available and we can show our grandchildren why we're nuts.

    • SorosBot

      The first three season are available, although sadly the first is missing some bits due to music rights issues; which I think is what's also holding up seasons four and five. I got two and three for Christmas and watched the shit out of them.

      • http://loljazzcatz.blogspot.com/ Chet Kincaid

        Please tell me you got these for your kids.

        • GOPCrusher

          Oh no. Who doesn't love Pigs In Space or Vetinarian Hospital?

        • SorosBot

          Nope, I don't have kids, just for myself and the kid I was back when the show was on.

  • lefty74

    I want to see the episode where Tex Richman gets caught after getting a "blowey" from that hooker Wendy Windmill and their tranny friend Sonny "A Cell D Cell" Solarcell .

  • BarryOPotter

    I noticed the Faux shills provided a lot of baseless, vile accusations. Usually, the person making accusation without evidence is either already doing what they accuse the other of doing, or really wanting to do it…

  • Generation[redacted]

    Waiting for a statement from the always controversial and militant Grover X.

    • HarryButtle

      We didn't land on Fraggle Rock, Fraggle Rock landed on us!

      • WhatTheHolyHeck

        Needs more love.

  • Joshua Norton

    I was going to comment on how there's potentially a tremendous amount of amusement to be had in watching wingnuts mix it up with puppets. But that's pretty much what Fox does anyway.

    However, it would be exceptionally hysterical to see Miss Piggy punch Bill O'Reilly in the face.

    • Loaded_Pants

      But how do right wingers feel about the autocratic rule of King Friday the 13th & Corny S. Pecially's capitalist endeavors?

  • soeoho

    Any Fox connection to News scares the H E duble toothpicks out of me and not just because of my racoon heritage!
    Vun!….puppet head…Two!…puppet heads…Three!…puppet heads… Its an Occupy Sesame Street Movement!

  • Wilcoxyz

    The Muppets could have named him N. Ron Richman.

  • Redhead

    Wait, I thought "Muppets newt and piggy respond to charges by Fox News puppets" was about the latest Republican debates.

  • BigDumbRedDog

    Fox news needs to report on those yo-gabba-gabba characters. They always be singing about sharing their toys and how it's okay to be different and stuff. Fuckin communists and their fucking agendas.

  • VinnyThePooh

    I would tell the Tightie Righties to make Muppets in their own image but that would simply require turning the cameras onto themselves.

  • http://www.thenation.com/ neo_conjob

    Pig Limbaugh have ambiguous feelings for the scrumptious seductive liberal muppet.

  • Lionel[redacted]Esq

    If FOX News knew that they would be in a fight with puppets that say silly things, do you think they would have kept Glenn Beck around?

    • Generation[redacted]

      Puppets that say silly things comprised the entirety of Glenn Beck's audience.

  • mavenmaven

    Its sad that a felt puppet likely has a higher IQ than the entire Fox news network.

  • GortRay

    Fox Noize Channel isn't funny, but it sure is a joke.

    Can I go live in Muppet world instead of this one?

    Fox Business News was considering a new theme song, but after the Muppet press conference, "It's Easy Being Green" was just eliminated from consideration.

  • arihaya

    FOX "News" is just upset because the Muppets used an evil oil baron , just like the Koch bros, as the villain in that movie,

    they think that Hollywood should just stick to the usual stock villains: Arabs, Muslims, Messicans, Russians, Communists and any combination thereof

  • Loaded_Pants

    If pancreatic cancer hadn't done Bill in, I think the two terms of Dubya would have.

  • Antispandex

    "Are liberals trying to brainwash your kids against capitolism?"

    I just love that! You know, because the obvious answer is, "Yes, and doing a really shitty job of it, from the looks of congress"!

  • ttommyunger

    So Faux couldn't find a guest hack without a flaming lisp for Chrisakes? Too funny!

  • a_pink_poodle

    Ugh there goes Ms Piggy opening her big mouth again! She's always had this problem since the Muppet Movie

  • Negropolis

    Shit just got real, Muppet style.

    But, but, isn't pork supposed to be a white meat?

    Swedish Chef makes more sense than Fox News.

  • Negropolis

    I much prefer this talking pig to Rush Limbaugh.
