Le roi fantoche est mort; vive le roi fantoche!

This week’s comic is brought to you almost entirely by the fact that the internet recently tried to convince me that Grover the Muppet died of toxic shock syndrome* on air, as a way to teach children about the importance of personal hygiene.

Thankfully, from what I can tell, the real (real?) Grover is alive (alive?) and well.


*No, I’ve never heard of anyone getting toxic shock syndrome from anything other than leaving in a tampon** for too long.

**Sorry/not sorry to those people who cannot grapple with the reality of tampons just because they don’t use them; you know who you are.
