Greetings, unicorns, and Happy Friday. This week’s news updates are a little more entertainment-heavy at the end, but first let’s get to this week’s politics and other newsy items:
Oh kittens. Read More This Open Thread is Back

It’s time to start the bitching, it’s time to get in fights, it’s time to time to meet the ugly on the All Stars show last night!
I was Kermit green with envy when the blonde host of Project Runway (Should I be remembering her name by now? Can I just call her Not-Heidi?) announced that the designers would be creating a cocktail dress for none other than Her Divine Porkness, Miss Piggy! I love Miss Piggy like I love her tasty cousin, pork chop. When I was very young, I had a shirt that said “It’s hard to be humble when you’re great” and it had Miss Piggy splashed across it. I took that as my life motto, so these designers better have broughten it in the clothes department.

My theory is that Glee = Muppet Show + Fame x Afterschool Specials divided by Zoom. (Everyone born before 1979 just went “Zoom! OMG! I remember Zoom!”) So this post sort of fits, right?
First up, Rita Moreno and Animal singing Peggy Lee’s classic “Fever”
Raquel Welch and Miss Piggy singing “W-O-M-A-N”
My personal favorite Muppet song ever, Linda Ronstadt singing “When I Grow Too Old to Dream” with Kermit. There is totally something in my eye.
Miss Diana Ross loves Fozzie. I love Fozzie. We should totes be friends.
Miss Shirley Bassey has a “Fire Down Below” and this is evidenced by how hard she is rocking the golden jumpsuit.
And by request, it’s Liza singing Copa Cabana with the freaking muppets. I didn’t even know this existed, my whole world has opened up.
