Lie Down with Muppets, Get Up with Fleas

I couldn't leave the blog sitting here for a couple days with a rant at the top of it, so I thought I'd share a touching picture of a finished object that's left the nest.

C sent me this photograph of Istvan, to show me how well he's adapting to his new home. I'm appalled. The last thing he read before leaving my apartment was an old copy of Odes of Horace I had lying around.


Blame it on Janice.

I guess you just have to cut the cord, don't you?

Don't worry, he'll come around in a few years. They just want a few momnts of independence. They tire easily. Just you watch.

He's just finding his wings. (Bears have wings????) He's young, he'll learn.

Either that or he'll learn to mix the perfect cocktail.

Either way, he's fab.

Franklin...sorry to contact you this way...I don't think I have your email address....anyway....can you forward me where you got the "hardware" for your teddy. I'm in love with him and need to make two by 7/23 for my great niece and my nephew. Tall task I know (since I can't find the book as of yet) but at least I can order the eyes and joint hardware...any help would be greatly appreciated.

Looks to me like he's actually researching the death of literature. How you ever managed to create a ursine literary critique is beyond me! Kudos Darling! Kudos!

The title of this post is insulting to muppets. As a staunch muppet-ally, I'm offended. Despite widespread preconceptions to the contrary, muppets do NOT have fleas, I'll have you know, except for Fozzie Bear and you can't generalize from one case.

A lawyer from the Muppet Defense League will contact you to discuss restitution to the Muppet Community. Frankly Franklin, I'm disappointed in you.

;-)

Frankly Franklin -

Do I need to start getting my horde of angry single mothers posting to your blog, "You said you'd post, but you haven't" and such nonsense?

Scooby Doo, where are thee?
