Introducing Our Disco-Worm Finger-Muppet Pets

We’re not really pet people.

But on a trip to McMinnville last Monday I found two finger Muppets that appear to be either lampreys, snakes, or disco worms. We named them Fang and Boca, with help from Aunty Fizgig.

Full disclosure: I bought them at a really cute shop called Hopscotch Toys. I did not rescue them from a disco-worm finger-Muppet shelter. In fact, they pretty much 100% came from a finger Muppet mill.

So no, we are not saving the world one disco-lamprey/worm/snake at a time.Β Are you happy? Next time you see me feel free to throw Kool-Aid all over my snow-white, faux-fur cat suit.

Yes I do. It’s very flattering. But enough about me.

You’re probably asking yourself, “Should I run out and buy disco-worm finger Muppets?” And I would say to you, “Now is a good time to buy. Because when they show up in episodes of Kourtney and Kim Take Trampolines to Paris in a few months, you’ll want to be able to say you had them first.”

Here are a few things you should know:

1. You will have to get them piano lessons.

2. They may turn your children into socialists over a series of “chats.”

3. They like olives on pizza.

  1. So, given that your titles on the photos are cutouts from magazines, I assumed you kidnapped the puppets. That is usually saved for ransom notes πŸ™‚

  2. This is hilarious! I wonder if my landlord has any rules against disco worms. They seem like the perfect pet to keep in a 600 square foot apartment.

  3. Well didn’t I miss it all. The move, the cool picture of you (man)handling two babies while pushing groceries (from Trader Joe’s I presume) and managing to look darn cute!!!! Sorry, Amina had a strep throat and Wally and I were sick, sick sick like dogs. A whole week spent at home for Amina’s winter break sick. But, we wish you the best with your move. I say, a move is a new opportunity. Always! Enjoys yourselves and explore the new ‘hood.

    Wish I could send you some meals but I need somebody to cook for me too hahahaha.

    Love you and miss you a lot.

    PS puppets kick ass!

    • Ugh! This season has given everyone a beating! I’m so sorry you were all taken down. And have I mentioned lately that I miss you!? Wish we could get together for some culinary or other mischief. πŸ™‚
