Mr. Bigot, A New Muppet Inspired by Chick-Fil-A, Unveiled by Jim Henson Company

LOS ANGELES, CA (@TheComedyNews)  -  After ending their promotional partnership with Chick-Fil-A, The Jim Henson Company has decided to make a new Muppet inspired by the anti-Gay fast food chain.  

"We want to make clear that homophobia will not be tolerated.   We have ended our partnership with Chick-Fil-A, and we at The Jim Henson Company are making a new Muppet, Mr. Bigot:  a sad portly anti-Gay conservative who frequents Chick-Fil-A, and throws bad tea parties," a spokesman announced.  

Part Mr. Bigot's personality will be constantly insisting that everyone eat fast food like Chick-Fil-A and say mean unprovoked comments at other characters.  

Some of the more established Muppets are quite uncomfortable at the addition of such a vile character, yet recognize the importance of pointing out how harmful his lifestyle is.

"This new Mr. Bigot guy is such a disgusting jerk, he makes me sound as friendly as Kermit," said Oscar the Grouch, the curmudgeon Muppet for 43 years.  "Mr. Bigot thought I was his buddy since I'm a hoarder and grouchy all the time, but I'm actually a very progressive guy.  Believe it or not, my family and I recycle at home." 

Wearing a confederate flag bandanna and a black t-shirt that reads "nObama", Mr. Bigot is meant to be the new beacon of bad influence amongst the Muppets.  "Biggy" is what he asks his friends to call him, but as expected, he will have none.  

According to Oscar the Grouch, Mr. Bigot confided to him some of his plans to harass the other Muppets.  First, he will try to pin Animal down and shave him.   Mr. Bigot also plans on poking fun at Miss Piggy on her way to the gym, telling Rolf that Michael Vick has been invited over to "play", and yelling Jewish epithets at Gonzo. Oscar the Grouch also said that Mr. Bigot had unrepeatable vitriol aimed at Bert and Ernie.

The Jim Henson Company plans on introducing another character, Psy, a Psychologist whom Mr. Bigot must visit with once a week to work on eliminating his stubborn hate.
