I recently came across the following video, unfortunately too late to post for St. Patrick’s Day:

After sharing this gloriousness with Becca, she and I had an interesting conversation about why it is so funny. Conveniently for me, since Becca has recently started her own blog that is dedicated to the discussion, dissection, and celebration of humor, she did the work of translating our thoughts into a blog-worthy piece. I am left with the fun part: finding more videos to honor the greatness of our fair Muppet trio.

“BAD PUN!” Too funny!

The greatness of the Muppets cannot be understated, and I’m excited over the recent news that Jason Segel is writing a script for another theatrical Muppet movie. I thought the last one, Muppets From Space, was hilarious and very underrated. Here’s hoping this next effort restores the gang to their deserved level of glory.
