Most of us know that our culture has gone to the dogs. Even Kermit and Miss Piggy have been affected–or infected, as you will see.

The new sex-saturated Muppets have even grossed out GQ, Gentleman’s Quarterly, not widely known for its prudishness. And you know kids are going to be watching it, parents notwithstanding.
