TALES OF MUPPET RIBALDRY, CONT'D: To those of you Weezer fans who thought I was some sick person for putting together the ideas of "muppets," "Weezer," and "sexuality," I point you in the direction of this week's Entertainment Weekly (with Harry Potter on the cover). There you will find an article about the Muppets and their upcoming comeback movie "A Very Merry Muppet Christmas," airing on NBC on November 29.
Now I already mentioned the historic Kermit the Frog/Snoop Dogg rap duet that was originally scheduled to be part of the film, until Muppet execs put the kibosh on it upon hearing that Snoop had made his porn debut earlier this year. But apparently this new movie does include "Scooter cage-dancing at a rave," and "Animal funnel-chugging eggnog," as well as the implication of frog-human romance (emphasis mine). Like it wasn't implied by Kermit and Jenny 15 years ago... anyway, it should go without saying that Triumph the Insult Comic Dog will make a cameo appearance as well.
