Grant it my writing often features heavier topics, but since I consider myself a life-experience storyteller, it made sense based on the circumstances going on in my life at the time.
Last week after the news broke that his relationship bit the dust, I came up with a top 10 list reasons why Kermit the Frog is the perfect boyfriend. It has been something that I have joked about for years, and many times Kermit has been referenced as my spirit animal.
Usually when writing an emotionally charged essay, I have to get into a certain mindset that can be pretty draining. But this piece let me dust off my typically unused Muppet knowledge and flex my funny bone. The only thing this article is meant to do is remind the reader how awesome The Muppets are.
It was my first piece ever published on HuffPost Comedy, with the label as satire. Hopefully this will be a start in learning to connect with readers through laughter, instead of always strumming the heart strings.
Even more exciting, some of my most Muppet inspirations have shared my article through Twitter, such as Muppet Henson, Ryan Dosier, Muppet Mindset, Bob Kushell, Frog Kissin’ Podcast and Tough Pigs. Of course the ultimate compliment would be a shoutout from Kermit the Frog’s Twitter but time will tell.
As a lifelong Muppet fan who truly has an emotional connection to the franchise, it’s an honor to be able to get the word out about and to give props to other Muppet lovers who continue to preserve the beauty Jim Henson created.
