Muppets read The New York Times. Or they use Google alerts. After former Goldman Sachs employee Greg Smith alleged in his resignation letter published as a New York Times op-ed piece that he’s witnessed colleagues refer to their clients as “muppets,” some fabricated fuzzy Americans are striking back. In a Funny or Die video set in dim boardroom, the Anti-Muppet Defamation League confronts suits played by Kyle MacLachlan and Neal McDonough (who dials down his Justified character Quarles for the occasion — we approve). Personally, I think they should have sent in Miss Piggy — that would’ve been a fair fight.
