With roughly two-thirds of U.S. adults and one-third of children and adolescents overweight or obese, it's about time we get fat shaming out of both the headlines and our homes and start speaking and acting more constructively.
You don't think Miss Piggy is capable of being a model of feminism? She controls her career, she picks her man and demands to be courted... and if she wants to wear designer clothes, she isn't worried about if it can fit or not -- she prefers everything custom-made anyway.
I suppose we're all the same, muppets and humans alike. The muppets are simply mirroring us mortals, and this could not have been truer when the entertainment rags reported that Kermit had already found a new pig -- a pig with auburn hair.
But when this couple called it quits, we have to admit, a little part of us died. This couple has been an "item" for most of our lives -- and now they have decided to end their relationship, which had been going strong since 1978 as of last Tuesday.
As a single woman who isn't excited about most of the tadpoles out there, I sympathize for how intimidating it can be to leap back into the dating pond. But it should be easy for Kermit because he embodies the makings of the perfect boyfriend (including soft, snuggly fabric).
Kids, recently something horrible happened. Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog, fixtures of your parents' childhood, split up. This is going to be very difficult on your parents. They are going to need your love and support to get through this rough time.
