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:

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

      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.

        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"???

    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.

      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.

    1. GOPCrusher

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

  3. 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

  4. YouBetcha

    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.

    1. 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!

  5. 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!

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

    1. Loaded_Pants

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

  8. NewtsChicknNeck

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

      1. Loaded_Pants

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

    1. Biff

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

  9. 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.

    1. 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.

  10. 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 .

  11. 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…

  12. 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.

    1. Loaded_Pants

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

  13. 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!

  14. Redhead

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

  15. 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.

  16. VinnyThePooh

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

  17. 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?

  18. 40 or 50 % McShineys

    FOX Watcher Joe: "Man, that talkin pig puppet better not be brainwashin our childerns to hate capitalizm!!"

    FOX Watcher Bob "Yeah, I agree! That Newt better cut out attacking Mitt about hizn imvestaments! THATAINT RAHT."

  19. 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

  20. 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"!

  21. a_pink_poodle

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

  22. 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.
