Ugly Kermits

This isn't review-related at all, but I feel I must share it nonetheless.  Have blog, will share.  You lucky few!

Anyway, a friend of mine likes Kermit the Frog.  (Who doesn't?)  Some time ago I tried to find her a Kermit toy on eBay.  One of the more notable results was... whatever this is.

What's incredible is that someone had this toy, took several pictures of it, and this was the best one.  Is it that hard to take a good picture of Kermit the Frog?  Is that Kermit the Frog?

Don't panic: it's got to be an isolated case.  We all know what Kermit looks like, so most Kermit toys will probably look like Kermit.

Right.  That... that's not Kermit the frog.  But maybe from a different angle he-

Oh god WHAT?  WHY?!

If you search for Kermit toys, you may notice a trend.  For some reason, Kermit toys tend to look... deceased.

After a while, eBay looks like a collection of amphibian mob hits.


As for the disposal of Kermit's remains, people are quite happily using them as clothes.  Regardless of the anatomical questions this raises.

You too can make it look as though Kermit ate your baby!  Whole.
It may interest the authorities to know that eerie images have surfaced of Kermit moments before the crime was committed...

...and the horrible moment of realisation.

But, hey, that's just Kermit.  Some people just don't photograph well.  The rest of the gang probably look fairly...


65 days until Christmas.  Happy shopping.
