Kermit the Frog has stunned his fans with claims that it isn't easy being green.
His views have come as no surprise to fans of The Muppet Show.
In a separate move, radical Greenpeace protesters have sailed the Gazguzzler, their massive former trawler to South America and scaled 'Mephisto' the tallest tree ever found in the Amazon basin.
A spokesman has vowed that they would rather hurl themselves to a messy death on the forest floor than admit that Kermit might have a point. They refused to be drawn on the fuel consumption of their vessel.
Former Muppet Show guest and after-life activist Richard Burton was unavailable for comment.
