Pareidolia Makes Me Grouchy

Sometimes seeing faces everywhere is fun. I mean, it’s kind of like living in a Muppet world, where everything from your cupboards to your vegetables has a personality.

But then again, sometimes it’s a bit disconcerting that everything from my cupboards to my vegetables has a personality.

I mean, take my fireplace.

Gas fireplace where the logs have been doodled to look like Oscar the Grouch. Word bubble says, "Scram!"

(Why yes, I do have a bit of a Muppet obsession, thank you for noticing.)

I mean, how fun is it to have a real life Sesame Street character living in your house?

An icon of children’s television.

A cute and cuddly (if grumpy) fuzzy friend. What’s not to like about that?

Oh dear god!

Same fireplace, only now the fire is lit, making the face look terrifying, especially with the red eyeballs doodled in. Speech bubble says, "There is no Oscar, only Zuul."

And that’s why pareidolia isn’t always amusing.

After all, it’s all fun and games until you start seeing demon Muppets from Hell everywhere.

It’s Time to Play the Music…

Hideliho! Kirmit the Forg here. And welcome to a very special presentation of the Murpet Show!

Our first act tonight is everyone’s favorite weirdo, the magnificent Ganzo, performing a scene from…a Soap Opera (?)
Are you sure about that Scooter?
Um, okay. Take it away Ganzo!

Thank you, Ganzo. I think I can speak for all of us, when I say that was unexpected.

Now, folks, please welcome a new and upcoming talent making their debut tonight, performing for the first time ever in the Murpet Theatre, I give you Wiley Chayote!

Psst, Wiley, you have to say something.

Okay, folks, it looks as though Wiley has a bad case of stage fright, but that’s okay, it can happen to anyone. I hope you don’t let it squash your dreams, Wiley.

Thank you for the vote of confidence, Stabler and Walrus!

Well, folks, that brings us to our last act of the night. Put your hands together for the Red Hot Bell Peppers!

That’s it for tonight’s show, folks. Thank you for joining us for this special presentation of Murpet Theatre. I hope you all enjoyed yourselves.
