While most fans of the Muppets know that Miss Piggy and Kermit are not together as of the beginning of their upcoming new series (with Kermit dating a younger piggy production assistant and Piggy dating… Topher Grace), but today it was made official in the saddest way possible… Facebook.
Here’s Kermit’s official statement:
Kermit’s Official Statement:
After careful thought, thoughtful consideration and considerable squabbling, Miss Piggy made the difficult decision to terminate our romantic relationship. We will continue to work together on television (“The Muppets”/Tuesdays 8pm this fall on ABC) and in all media now known or hereafter devised, in perpetuity, throughout the universe. However, our personal lives are now distinct and separate, and we will be seeing other people, pigs, frogs, et al. This is our only comment on this private matter. Thank you for your understanding.
Meanwhile, here’s how Piggy, the ham who isn’t even worth turning into bacon responded:
“Dating moi is like flying close to the sun. It was inevitable that Kermit would drop down to the ground while I stayed in the heavens.”
