What, you thought I was serious?!
Of course I don’t think Rowlf is the worst Muppet. He’s one of the best Muppets! I love that guy. I just wanted to see what would happen when I post this link on social media.
See, we at Tough Pigs have noticed that there are certain people among our readership who like to jump in and comment on an article without having read it. Like, we’ll post an article called “Five Times Kermit Wore a Sweater Vest,” and #4 on the list will say “Kermit wore a sweater vest at the end of Muppet Family Christmas.” And the first comment on Facebook will be “Kermit wore a sweater vest at the end of Muppet Family Christmas!” And we’ll be like “We KNOW! We said that in the article!”
So let’s see how this goes. How many people will actually look at this article and read the words I’m typing here? How many will just start yammering about how wrong I am about Rowlf without ever clicking the link? I can’t wait to find out!
(By the way, if you are nice enough to have clicked on the link, I’d like to ask you for one more favor: Please don’t leave any comments on the social media posts for this article explicitly telling people they should click the link. Let’s allow the experiment to happen with no outside influence. Thanks!)
