Just to keep things in perspective, Easter Sunday was the first day that I had completely off in over two weeks, so it’s hard for me to keep up with what’s going on in the Muppet fan community. 😳
So I didn’t get around to mentioning this Muppet Madness tournament, even though it’s nearly halfway over already. I’ve been voting for all Steve’s characters, even though doing so forced me to vote for Andy and Randy Pig 😬 (honestly, I was kind of relieved when they lost).
The remaining characters of Steve’s in the tournament are Kermit, Ernie (with Bert), and Bean Bunny, who is neck-and-neck with the Doozers and in danger of elimination. Kermit has a comfortable lead over Scooter, but Ernie and Bert are barely edging the Swedish Chef with 51%.
I know it’s just a silly game that doesn’t really matter, but it’s kind of fun, and it’s at least a small way that we can show our support for our favorite puppeteer while we’re waiting for him to get his website back up and running. Round 2 ends in approximately 6 hours, so let’s push Bean Bunny through to the next round and show the world what an adorable badass we think he is. 🐰
