In late breaking news, the Henson Workshops are suing Sarah Palin. According to a Henson spokesperson, Palin's lipstick wearing stuffed pig looks too much like Miss Piggy and is a copyright infringement... right down to the blond wig, fake eyelashes and "Yah ha" karate chopping.
When asked by a RAG TV reporter what she thought of the suit, Ms Palin stated that her pig was unique in that it wore only designer clothes, spoke several languages and only karate chopped Democrats, something that Miss Piggy did not do. According to Ms Palin, Kermit was a loyal Republican yet Miss Piggy still chopped him, something her pig would not have done, nor would ever do,, and therefore her pig was/is totally different.
Ms Palin further went on to say that Miss Piggy was very, very similar to an old aunt on her mother's side, and that she is seeking legal representation to sue Henson Workshops for creating a pig that bore such a striking resemblance to a much loved family member without consent. Ms Palin will assert that Henson Workshops modeled Miss Piggy from a photographic likeness of her aunt when she won the Miss Sow County beauty pageant in 1979. and appeared in the Sow County Herald newspaper.
