Manamana or Zdravstvutsyeh???
You’ve heard of a puppet communist regime, right? Well it’s the 21st century and now that the Cold War is over (sort of), this totalitarian style of government has evolved to…a muppet communist regime. ~Cue “GeneralisELMO” jokes~
As everyone reported so I didn’t, Fox News’ failing business channel lambasted the new Muppets movie for being a font of socialist propoganda, notably because of its villian, the “cartoonishly villainous tycoon Tex Richman.” I mean, I think most people enjoyed this story because it was a BRILLIANT piece of meta-performance on Fox News’ part. Castigating the muppets for being socialists is unique Habermasian piece of media criticism, no?
Well the story about the USSM (Union of Soviet Socialist Muppets) may have given birth to a new meme, as the conservative CNS News is furious that on Sesame Street “a “food insecure” Muppet is helping to promote a national “Food for Thought” campaign that teaches poor families to seek out nutritious food and to eat on the taxpayers’ tab.” Did you know that PBS stands for Pure Bolshevik Slime?!?
Indeed, it’s time for us to form a new, capitalism loving version of the Muppets. They’ll be called “Adam Smith presents The Fluppets” and rather than being controlled by the hands of master puppeteers, they’ll be control by the invisible hand of the free market!
