The original Kermit the Frog puppet is headed for the Smithsonian!

Jim Henson's widow Jane Henson is donating the puppet, who was originally made from an old coat thrown away by Jim's mom, and 9 others to the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History.

Kermit made his TV debut in 1955 appearing on a show called Sam and Friends that ran after the local news in Washington.

He's come a long way!

    I'm sure I'm not the only one to notice how few comments you get to your stories now Mario. It wasn't that long ago you would get hundreds for even the most banal shit. Now days your lucky to crack a dozen.

    That suggests a couple of things to me. I'll point out the obvious Mario because I know your not very intelligent. YOU ARE ON THE WAY OUT.

    Sure hope your advertises aren't dumb enough to still be paying full price because your days of being even semi-relevant are definately OVER!!!!!
