The Teaches of Piggy

This makes me very happy:

Huh, what? (I also love this Kermit-does-Talking-Heads video.)
Thanks to my pal Amina for the link.

    Believe it or not, I find this material triggering.

    Me, too. Maybe if I knew the song, I’d appreciate it better?

    Miss Piggy FTW!! rofl!

    Same. The only time I heard this song was during the strip club scene in “Lost in Translation.”

  • NapoleonInRags

    How so? Not trying to be difficult, I just don’t understand.
    I thought the video was pretty damn funny. I’m a big Peaches fan though.

    The Disney logo in some of the shots really just makes it perfect.

    Yeah, same here. I was on a Muppets kick earlier today from the posts over at Shakesville and this kinda killed that buzz. And then ran it over a couple more times to make sure.

    For those who only know the song from “Lost in Translation,” here’s a bit of context on the artist, Peaches.

    I don’t know, something about a pig-puppet woman who enjoys sex with a wimpy frog-man weirds me out. That, and the “sucking on my titties” line which in my mind’s eye continues the farm-animal theme we have going on here in a more bovine direction.
    I’ve never been a fan of Peaches. I don’t think her work is artistically innovative at all.
    And as for the political aspect of it–
    Like Michel Foucault argues, I think that the place we went wrong in the sexual revolution of the sixties (however many places we may have gone right) is in believing that merely being able to speak openly/obscenely about sex makes us ‘liberated.’ So long as the question of our identity still hinges on the question of sexual identity, I think we have work to do.
    And you know what they say about swears, kids — they’re a sign of a poor vocabulary.
