Thursday 13 (Thirteen) for April 27

13 Muppets in Order of Trustworthiness

  1. Kermit – I can’t say enough about the integrity of this muppet. He’s kind, sings pretty good, and he’s green!
  2. Bert – Put aside all the “Bert is Evil” negative propaganda, , Bert is a nice guy who makes a great roommate to Ernie. With all that he has to put up with, I’m amazed that he still has a good sense of humor. Although I suspect he votes Republican, anyone who loves pigeons is a good guy in my book.
  3. Big Bird – He’s an eternal 4-year-old with a heart of gold.
  4. Gonzo – I have a thing for percussionists, and Gonzo plays to gong to officially start the Muppet Show.
  5. Fozzy – He’s always trying to improve himself and his act on the Muppet Show. Even though he’s a comedian, I still consider him trustworthy.
  6. Elmo – Another eternal 4-year-old, I suspect that if you told Elmo a secret, he’d try to keep the secret for as long as he could. But his enthusiasm would get the best of him, and he’d burst.
  7. Grover – He taught me the difference between Near and Far. I’ll never forget him for that!
  8. Ernie – He might have been higher on the list, except for his shady dealings when trying to buy a Q. Perhaps being a rock star (“Rubber Duckie" was released as a single in 1970 and reached the top 40 on the Billboard charts) corrupted him.
  9. Oscar – He may live in a trash can, but I suspect he holds lots of secrets down there.
  10. Count – He’s a vampire, need I say more? But at least he dresses nice.
  11. Cookie – If he can’t be trusted to not eat the letter M, I don’t know what I could trust him with.
  12. Miss Piggy – Her relationship with Kermit does not give her the same trustworthiness status that he holds. She’s likely to karate-chop you at any minute.
  13. Animal – Okay, he’s a percussionist, but he’s crazy!

But Ernie votes Democrat so they balance each other out. I can't believe how long this show has been on! Is it still on?! I like Oscar. Oscar for President!

Kermit does seem very trustworthy. He and Bert both seem like dependable fellows.
My TT is up.

Natalie said...

Every once in a while, I get a great urge to say, "Gooot Aahhh-ftah-noon! Ah ha ha ha!" like the Count. :)

Natsthename said...

Even in the Muppet world, drummers get NO RESPECT! ;)

That was a truly original and fun list!!! Loved it!

Fun list, really great idea! I will be watching Sesame Street (with my 3yr old) in a different light now. :) My TT are up.

Norma said...

If you are 30 something, the Muppets have been around your whole life. Great list.

My Tt is up.

Shannon said...

Oh. My. Gosh. That is too funny. Brought back some great memories. I learned near and far from Grover, too.

Norma said...

I hadn't thought of these guys in a long time. They are the same age as my kids.

The Shrone said...

For years I've held a crush on Kermit and wish I could marry him. My reason being: he's the perfect gentlemen! Plus he has endured Miss Piggy's karate chops all of these years so he has an unbreakable spine! And did I mention he is sexy green?

Yes, the Muppets are the best. I watch them when I need comforting.

Red said...

Great list!

I named my car Elmo (yeah, a little thing I do...), and your description fits it to a T, especially the bit about enthusiasm getting the better of it and it bursting!
