The world was stunned today when it was revealed that the outbreak of swine flu could be traced back to a single source. Kermit The Frog.
The world famous TV presenter, actor, singer and global green icon was found to have first contracted the new strain of flu after having unprotected sex with long time girlfriend Miss Piggy.
Long term friend of the couple, Fozzie Bear, said "Kermit and Miss Piggy have been in a relationship for around thirty years and theirs was always seen as one of Hollywood's most enduring relationships however this recent development has understandably put a severe strain on their relationship."
Dr Bunsen Honeydew who has been Kermit's physician for many years said "Miss Piggy had a minor infection closely related to the common cold which has reacted badly to some of Kermits 'spawn' causing it to mutate into the virus now known as swine flu."
"Furthermore, my tests suggest that the first human to have contracted the virus could only have done so by placing their hand up Kermit's rectal area." continued Dr Honeydew.
This startling development has furthered rumours that Kermit is actually a puppet.
