the Muppet Show hanging around the NG?

* There's Kermit; frontman and manager, valiantly struggling to keep the 
show together: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kermit_the_Frog

* The inscrutable Swedish Chef was present at one time:

* There's at least one of Statlet & Waldorf, up there in the balcony, 
calling out the BS as it occurs:

* There's a Miss Piggy, primping and strutting, replete with a dramatic 
brush-back of the hair: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miss_Piggy

* Sam the Patriot: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sam_the_Eagle

* Rizzo the Rat: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rizzo_the_Rat

* We have occasional "guest appearances", such as a recent one from the 
Script-Kiddie Killer with his Death-Threats and Nazi Uniform

* Can't leave out Dr Bunsen Honeydew:

Any more?

Who am I? Beaker, the victim of poorly designed expedients or maybe Bunsen, the perpetrator of said experiments? (Don't worry, it nigh on impossible to hurt my feelings with facts ;)

hehehe The fun thing about a Muppet comparison is that the puppets were intended to convey a sense of everyday caricature - people in real life who fit the role/mask rather well. I'm sure each of us can come up with a handful of matches (ng persona <=> muppet), but it would be the overlap of common choices that might get the best laugh Might be a tad non-PC to publish such matches, but there's perhaps a bit of shared amusement in thinking about it. Gave me a giggle, at least, especially when considering some of the more dramatic Muppet personas :-)

First, this reply is intended in good humor, as I believe the OP was. Save the

Second, I can't believe you resisted the urge to Subject this post:


"D Muppet Show"


I applaud your self-restraint to obvious cheese.

Obviously the Tango team as a whole, the only sane one running around amidst the crazies trying to bring order to the show. :)

This _has_ to be Walter! I can completely see his creations being the result of insanity at times :). I have this mental image of Walter holding up the poor Enum chicken in one hand with the "I define words at a whim" cleaver in the other. Poor chicken! He looks positively scared to death! :) That's about it for now. /cheers
