In a culture that is driven by make-believe (“Caitlyn Jenner is a woman!” “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot!” “Republicans are conservative.”), it’s only natural that the break-up of two make-believe characters would be treated like an actual news story.
A story in People magazine had said Kermit the Frog wasted no time moving on from his breakup with longtime girlfriend Miss Piggy and was now dating an ABC marketer named Denise.
Not true, says Kermit. They’re just “friends.”
Let’s be honest, Miss Piggy has always been completely self-centered, high-maintenance, manipulative, and at times downright abusive; a typical 21st Century feminist. That’s probably why the feminists gave her an award. She openly flirts with other men in front of him and just expects Kermit to take it.
And basically, Kermit got tired of dealing with her sh-t.
Kind of plays into the social zeitgeist, or whatever. “Empowered” women have become so unbearable that men are not just fleeing marriage, but relationships with women entirely.
At the end of the day, Kermit and Miss Piggy are inanimate pieces of felt and stuffing. Pretending they are real people makes about as much sense as pretending Trayvon Martin was an innocent schoolboy gunned down by a white racist.
