"It isn't easy being green."

The Green Goblin, wearing a green jumpsuit, was arraigned in a Manhattan courtroom early this morning.

In a shocking turn of events, he's accused of tampering with theater sets and props and causing the accidents that have plagued the new Broadway musical, "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark."

Mr. Goblin's lawyer, the Jolly Green Giant, reminded the news media that his client was innocent until proven guilty. The Little Green Sprout, on hand to hold Mr. Giant's coat, briefcase, and lunch box, nodded agreement.

The visitors gallery of the courtroom was a sea of green. Yoda, Shrek, Kermit the Frog, and six members of the Green Bay Packers were there in a show of support for their green colleague. Al Gore also made a brief appearance, having told a friend that he was in favor of anything green.

Kermit was the only one who spoke to the media. He summed up his feelings in five words: "It isn't easy being green."

More to come, as new information develops.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
