Love Loses as Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy Call It Quits

I think the whole institution of marriage should probably be done away with at this point. If Kermit and Miss Piggy can’t make it work how can their possibly be hope for the rest of us?

The now former couple released the following statement on their respective Facebook pages.

“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.”

Kermit reportedly already has a new girlfriend named Denise who works in the marketing department of ABC.

This hits me hard because they’ve been together for 40 years and my parent’s 40th anniversary was back on June 28.

All this time, I thought they had a storybook romance. It is hard to know what is real anymore.

Author Neil Gaiman sums things up pretty well on Twitter…
