Quiz: Can You Separate Real Headlines About Miss Piggy and Other Children’s Characters From Fake Ones?
Miss Piggy and Kermit’s breakup has been playing out in the media like it’s an actual story, not manufactured storytelling from an upcoming television show trying to reel in viewers. Now, as sad as some of us might be about the Muppet heartbreak, let us remember what our parents and caretakers once said to soothe us: It is only make-believe. Repeat: It’s only make-believe.
Google often bestows the tiny, uselessly amusing gifts of decorative and sometimes interactive fonts — celebrating a variety of both famous and obscure birthdays, holidays and anniversaries — upon its users. Now, the corporation is letting Pac-Man run loose on the streets of Google Maps for our very mindless entertainment. Similarly on the subject of the Internet’s gifts, here are three mashups of various Muppets performing the hip hop classics.
We’ve guided you to offbeat holiday films, classic holiday films, anti-Christmas movies, excellent holiday movies, lousy holiday movies, and a holiday movie so lousy it’s excellent.
