I Think We Picked Up a Weirdo

Are you sitting down? Because this is big. Thanks to FAO Schwarz, you will soon be able to…design…your…own…Muppet. On October 22, FAO is launching The Muppet Whatnot Workshop. What is a Whatnot? A Whatnot is basically a Muppet extra, one of those guys in the background in every Muppet show, movie or song and dance number. Now…you can have your very own. For $130, FAO will send you a design kit, then you just send it back and in 3-4 weeks, you will have your real-life Muppet creation in felt and foam. This innovation can only be described as Muppetational. Though I’ve wanted a Muppet of my very own since birth, I can’t even begin to imagine what to design. Male or female? Blue or orange? Glasses or buggy eyes? The mind boggles. I have a feeling I’m going to need a whole cast.
