This Photo Makes a Serious, Underappreciated Philosophical Statement about Life

Kermit does Elvis?
This is really important philosophical argument material. How do you find such arcane resources?

Winter said...

Hahaha... where did that come from? I would have left off the just kidding part.

Stacy - You know those "Ma Nah Ma Nah" creatures?

They tell me what to say.

Winter - I've been waffling over that very point, actually. First it wasn't in. Then it was. And now, *poof*, it's gone.

Is that Kermit doing Elvis? I thought it was Kermit doing Disco Stu. Regardless, it is making me think about my, um, mortality, or something?

Kidding. This is funny...and a little sad. If it was in a museum I'd stand in front of it staring for hours.

Isn't that baby bop?

Pamela said...

oh heck.. it is kermit in a green wig. I needed my glasses.

Maybe he's singing
"I ain't nothing but a hound frog."

PS to Winter - I bought that a few months back while perusing the toy section with my nephew. I don't normally like "kitsch," but this sort of kitsch looks perfect on my dining room bookshelf.

'Cause that's where it is.

James - Sounds like you would *love* the Museum of Bad Art. Forget the name of the suburb it's in, but it's very near Boston.

Pamela - And here I almost titled this quite plainly "It Ain't Easy Being King."

I like yours better.

Though part of me thinks this is more so a matter of a Disco Frog than a King Frog. I dunno. Elvis did go through a really bad "stage" in the early 70s.

Winter said...

You have wonderful taste in dressed frogs.

I stole this brilliant photo.
