The Muppets occupy special place in my heart — the kind of special space that’s usually reserved for Murdock from The A-Team and people who replace song lyrics with cat meows.

I’m excited about the release of The Muppets, in theaters today!

Whether you are a fan of cloth and fur characters or not, you should read the excerpt below, written by a British blogger I stalk, Scaryduck. I sent him a message declaring my admiration and loyalty.  He responded with, “cor, thanks.”  I hope that means “Cool! I really like your blog and think you are awesome, too” in UK slang.

Here’s what Scaryduck wrote:

“Kismet. The frog. Kermit’s brother. He stayed in the swamp while his famous sibling found fame and fortune in the big city. Married, had loads of little tadpoles, made something of himself in swamp society, but all the time resented Kermit and his high-fallutin’ ways, and it all came out in one bitter, drunken outburst at that family get-together of which they never ever speak. ‘A pig!’ he shouted, ‘You married A BLOODY WHORE PIG!’ and everybody looked away, embarrassed that he’d gone and shown them all up in front of their famous cousin by doing that ‘What’s green and smells of bacon?’ joke…”

Kismet, Kermit's jealous, hick brother from the swamp.

At Disney World, when the family was in line for The 3D Muppet show near the end of a long day, I was tired and couldn’t stop repeating “He married a bloody whore pig!” to myself and laughing wildly.  And if the world revolved around comedy, my in-laws would have looked lovingly at my husband, glanced back at me with disdain, and thought “touché.”  But they really like me, so that didn’t happen.  That I know of.  And that makes this story less funny.
