Kermit and Ladysmith Black Mambazo

If you need proof that the South Africans do amazing things with choral arrangements, check out Ladysmith Black Mambazo singing the alphabet with Kermit the Frog.

Now I want you to understand that this is a compliment of the highest order.... if you were a muppet, David, you would be Kermit.

Unfortunately women don't enjoy the same range of muppet role models.... if i were a muppet, i would be.... Miss Piggy? Janice? Prairie Dawn?

Jennifer, how could that be anything but a compliment of the highest order?

As for female muppet role models, I cannot add many names to your list. And the ones I come up with like Oscar's girlfriend Grundgetta and Gladys the Cow don't offer much additional range.

I had forgotten Gladys, but the following info in your linked article, "She loves to sing, and occasionally wears a wig" tells me I have found my muppet role model! (despite the article's earlier assertion that she is a "vain bovine")
