Muppets Musical Friday Funny

Sorry Picture Not Found

It's the end of the week, and definitely now is the time to put a smile on the dial..... Hopefully this blog post will help do it for you.

Even the real "Miss Piggy" and her friends, (pictured above), found this post absolutely hilarious !

The first item is the Muppets Version of "Bohemian Rhapsody" (steadily working it's way up towards 9 million views on You Tube).

And for those with a passion for classical music:
Here is the Muppets "Ode to Joy":

Ludwig van Beethoven, one of the greatest classical composers, wrote "Ode to Joy" towards the end of his career. He was deaf and ill and had suffered much in his lifetime. Yet he was able to compose this magnificent piece by hearing it in his head. He never heard it played.

It is said that at its premiere performance, Beethoven was conducting and it wasn’t until he turned to the audience at the end and saw them standing and applauding and yelling out praise and emotion, that he knew that this wonderful Ode to Joy was felt by all who heard it, as he had felt it, in his head when he heard it.
Definitely one of the most uplifting and magnificent pieces of music ever written.

Okay, with all this Muppetering, you might as well do the Online Muppets personality test : "Which Muppet are You ?"

(Note that when you submit your test answers, it takes a couple of minutes for the answer to arrive).


I won't tell you about which Muppet I turned out to be, other than he was very green in colour.

And finally, here is a classical Ludwig van Beethoven Joke :

"A tourist in Vienna is going through a graveyard and all of a sudden he hears some music. No one is around, so he starts searching for the source. He finally locates the origin and finds it is coming from a grave with a headstone that reads: "Ludwig van Beethoven, 1770-1827." Then he realizes that the music is the Ninth Symphony and it is being played backward!

Puzzled, he leaves the graveyard and persuades a friend to return with him.

By the time they arrive back at the grave, the music has changed. This time it is the Seventh Symphony, but like the previous piece, it is being played backward. Curious, the men agree to consult a music scholar.

When they return with the expert, the Fifth Symphony is playing, again backward. The expert notices that the symphonies are being played in the reverse order in which they were composed, the 9th, then the 7th, then the 5th.

By the next day the word has spread and a throng has gathered around the grave. They are all listening to the Second Symphony being played backward.

Just then the graveyard's caretaker ambles up to the group. Someone in the crowd asks him if he has an explanation for the music.

"Don't you people get it?" the caretaker says incredulously.
"He's decomposing!"
