You ever think about how kermit's face collapses in on itself whenever he's mad? And we see that and we're like "Oh yeah I know that expression anywhere," like how do we know?!?! Kermit's face changes shape all the time and I keep forgetting that isn't normal and that he's a puppet!

Kermit the frog be like "Hi dee ho," and I'm like "Oh yes a real life being,"

Kermit the frog isn't real and idk why that's so hard for my brain to realise, like, "He talk"

Yes brain he does talk.

"He robot?"

No brain he's not a robot.

"... Alive!"

No-

"Kermit the frog is people :)"

Am i allowed to say kermit isn't real? Like it's not like a "No you can't tell kids the truth about (fictional person) that's so rude," kinda deal is it?

@Ivafakename What if Kermit is really in control and the so-called puppeteer is actually the puppet?

@owashii so theres this vr horror(?) game called "Hello puppets" which is basically this

@Ivafakename that sounds terrifying I already have the jibblies thinking about it

@owashii I like the look of it tbh, it has some interesting mechanics

@Ivafakename if there's One thing the human brain is gOOd at, it's identifying things that are like us and empathizing with them, even if they aren't Other peOple. basically, same.

@seventy thank you for that, kermit the frog makes me feel silly sometimes and idk why

@Ivafakename if kermits not real then explain how he was in all those films
