Presenting a leaked scene from the recently announced forthcoming new Muppet movie; "The Muppet Wicker Man"

The entire photocomic is available for viewing here

And for legality, in case one is needed, we have the last Muppets newspaper comic strip, which more or less summarises the entire first episode of "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip" in a single page.

I can actually see Kermit pulling off a pretty good Matthew Perry performance.
Warning, any damage this may do to your childhood memories of Sesame Street, The Muppet Show and/or the original Wicker Man is entirely your own fault!

Man, not even the scary image of Miss Piggy's breasts ruins the awesome.

That's brilliant. And it's even the original version, not the horrible Nick Cage attempt (how do you make a B movie even worse, anyway?). Bravo!

By adding Nicholas Cage that's how.

Also: I consider the new Wicker Man to be an unofficial prequel to the Ghost Rider movie. Since that ends with Nick Cage getting burned alive and he spends the majority of Ghost Rider with his head on fire. :)

Am I a bad person for wanting Cage to be a "Method" actor?

Why do they keep giving him fantasy and supernatural roles anyway? They're not what he's good at!

To paraphrase the Arrogant Worms, it's not so much he's better in dramatic roles, it's just that he's less worse.

In a word: Bees. My God.

But...but...I thought bees were supposed to make things better! You know, like monkeys do!

There's lots of room to make The Wicker Man worse, since it's brilliant to begin with.

Well, it's brilliant in a surreal way, or as satire. As a movie on its own merits, I dunno.

I do find the "pagan rituals" hilarious, though. The ones that are based on Morris Dancing and the boys-only maypole dance are my favourites.
