Why does it seem only douchebags have a problem with Muppets? Chick Fil a, Fox News, Courtney Love. I've never heard a sane thing against them.

Because being a douchebag is a requirement to hate awesome things.

To quote Winchester from M*A*S*H....

"Gentlemen, Boston would have banned Pinnochio."

Aren't they generally known for banning a lot of things?

Generally, such bannings are the result of the sort of conservative “think of the children” moral outrage and overreactions that would usually wind up on the other side of the SSM debate.

Holy shit, I've just realised that I've been pronouncing (or rather reading in my head) "Chick-fil-A" all wrong. Up until now, I always thought it was pronounced "Chick-fil-ah" rather than "Chick-fil-aiye". It does makes a hell of a lot more sense, come to think of it.

Ironbite-they sure do practice "Christian" values don't they?

Classy... lying out of your ass because you made an ass of yourself is apparently a traditional Christian value. Yup. Totally what Jesus would have done.

Well, the safety issue is that association with them may make kids accept others for their differences.  Which is, you know, one of the core values of the Muppets for the last 40 years or so....
