You know what really gets my goat? When some asshole badmouths the most beloved children’s franchise of all time. It’s like, come on, guy. Have you ever seen the Muppets? The guys who are always walking around all wonky with their bulging eyeballs and collaborating with the best musicians in the world? You sure we’re talking about the same puppets here?
Before I go any further, I should mention that I don’t particularly care for kids. They are loud, emotionally unstable, and their sense of humor is too slapsticky for my taste. So it makes sense that I usually hate children’s TV shows, because they cater to a demographic that I do not like. That said, I love the Muppets, and I’ll tell you why.


Counterpoint: Fuck That Guy, the Muppets Rule

Counterpoint: Fuck That Guy, the Muppets Rule

I wouldn’t say I “hate” the Muppets, since “hate” would imply a level of giving-a-shit about them that really isn’t in me. I just don’t care about them—I don’t want to watch YouTube clips of them, I don’t really want to see that new movie coming out tomorrow, and if they were picked to host the Oscars, it would have made absolutely no difference to me, since I wouldn’t watch the Muppets or the Oscars together, or separately, or in any combination.
Point: Fuck the Muppets
