Childhood Ruined: Kermit and Miss Piggy Officially Breakup

It’s a sad day folks. I mean if two fictional characters played by puppets with people’s hands shove up their backsides can’t make it, who can? I’m shocked but not surprised. You would always see Kermit showing doing reports on Sesame Street, so you had to figure he had an apartment in the city where he no doubt kept his side piece.

The show lasted all of one season and it’s not too hard to figure out why.
