Muppets in the Soup - Join In

Write a limerick of your own about a Muppet. If you post it in a comment or in soup mail to me, and I find it appropriate, I'll add it on. ;-) Sesame Street's Count von Count is dressed in black He spends his time counting bats and talking smack This vampy Muppet wears a cape Skin the color of a ripening grape Pointy teeth bite your neck when he's ready to attack There's a Muppet who always wears a striped shirt So does Ernie, but the one I'm talking about is Bert He loves Bernice, his pet pigeon Bert's nose is crooked, just a smidgeon He's the more serious of the two: Bert the introvert **************** Tell me more about that messy muncher who crunches cookies like a real monster! He talks while he eats, spurts crumbs round his seat... Is that why he does not grow much larger? taai tekai **************** Here’s a tale about Kermit the frog When blind drunk he slipped off a wet log Miss Piggy was forlorn Her dear ‘Kermie’ was ‘gorn’ Now he’s buried deep in a peat bog The Swedish chef landed up in jail In bad trouble no one would pay bail He’d got a big knife And butchered his wife No parole until he's old and frail! Cookie monster was in a foul mood She’d found something so bad on her food A black and white turd Produced by big bird When she saw him she said something lewd! Cookie Monster was curt and concise She don’t give folks impartial advice My word she’s a bore Her word is the law I don’t think she is really that nice Jan Allison ***************** Lin had a crush on old Mr Hooper Said he was fine when he shook his pooper In his glasses she'd see A hidden mystery behind closed doors said his puppet was super Tim Smith ***************** Big Bird got a bit over-zealous In checking out Miss Piggy's trellis. Oh! Kermit was pained And thus he remained Quite furiously green and jealous. Doug Vinson **************** Miss Piggy was visibly shaken, In the café where Kermit ate bacon. So she filled him with grog, Put grease on his log, Where he fell in the bog and was taken. Ray Gridley **************** Have sympathy for poor old Beaker Was given away by his squeaker Miss Piggy he'd kissed "You're dead!" Kermit hissed So raced through the set like a streaker John Michaels **************** Not a limerick, but welcomed anyway is this: Lin Lane, is visibly smart Sharp as an arrow or dart Witty and skilled with her art These Muppets with humor and heart Encouraging them all to take part Klio Tsitsikroni ****************

Haha, good one Lin. Here's my addition (inspired by Jan's reply as well)...................................................Miss Piggy was visibly shaken, In the cafe where Kermit ate bacon. So she filled him with grog, Put grease on his log, Where he fell in the bog and was taken.
