Today Twitter is down whenever I click on the hashtag Muppetational May. I want to see other people's picks but for now I'll have to settle for seeing them in my news feed or clicking on Twitter pages for those participating. Actually, I clicked on a few other hashtags and got the same error. So hashtag searches are down.

My picks from the last week:
  • Day 4: Muppet thing I have changed my mind about: I originally thought Muppets from Space was better than the previous post-Jim movies and originally thought The Muppets' Wizard of Oz was better than the other literature films but now I feel The Muppet Christmas Carol is the best of both categories.
  • Day 5: Muppet product I am most proud of: My Palisades figures.
  • Day 6: Four favorite monsters: Gorgon Heap, Behemoth, Doglion, Thog.
  • Day 7: Favorite Muppet website: Muppet Wiki.
  • Day 8: Favorite Muppet talk show appearance: Jim Henson on The Dick Calvett Show, 1971.
  • Day 9: Favorite Muppet reference on a non-Muppet show: The Muppets Go Medevil on The Simpsons.
  • Day 10: four favorite Kermit songs: Once in a Lifetime, Happy Feet, Right Where I Belong, A Song from Kermit.
  • Day 11: Four favorite Bert and Ernie songs: Rubber Duckie, The National Association of W Lovers, But I Like You, La La La.
  • Day 12: Four favorite Big Bird songs: The Sound of the Letter A, The Happiest Street in the World, I'm So Blue, The Christmas Song.

I didn't realize until the favorite Grover song and/or sketch day that they put "and/or" for bot Grover and Cookie Monster, meaning we could list a song and sketch.

  • Day 14: Best Grover song and/or sketch: Song -Monster in the Mirror, sketch - Monsterpiece Theater: Chariots of Fur.
  • Day 15: Best Cookie Monster song and/or sketch: song - C is for Cookie, sketch - Beat the Time.
  • Day 16: Best Jim Henson Character: Dr. Teeth.
  • Day 17: Best Frank Oz Character: Grover.
  • Day 18: Best Richard Hunt character: Beaker.
  • Day 19: Best Dave Goelz character: Boober Fraggle.

When it came to favorite songs from classic and later Muppet films, I wondered if anyone would list both Rainbow Connection and/or Together Again for both.

June is almost over, and Tough Pigs has not done an article tallying up the results from this year. And last year, that article came on the first of June. I wonder what's going on.

Of course Toughpigs does have a lot of different things going on this month (they also still haven't posted results or at least named winners for the Sesame Street "somebody come and poll" poll from April).
