It seems Statler's been a bit busy in the blogosphere since certain similarities were first noticed. I've just seen yet another blog where his image appears alongside a relevant story.
First off KERRON CROSS - The Voice of The Delectable Left used him for "Brown Pants for Lib Dems" (although he seems to be casting Statler as Vincent Cable, Waldorf as Campbell, Fozzie as Mark Oaten and Kermit as Lembit Öpik, although at least Miss Piggy is Sarah Teather). Then Guido Fawkes ran "Muppet Ming Muffs PMQs Again", followed by The Vented Spleen with "Apparently Ming Will Be Gone Within a Year".
Does anyone else have any sightings of Statler in the blogosphere? Maybe he can become the de facto representation.
How is it, that out of all the people on your list of those who contributed to the Little Red Book, I am the only one left off?
Do you not like me, Tim? :(
It was probably an error as I put the list of links together from a email before I received my copy. I've now added it. Sorry about that!
Haven't you forgotten Beaker?
And interesting to note who first made the analogy.
Erm that Independent article postdates their first appearances on my blog.
And although I see the similarities, Beaker isn't Danny Alexander here. Beaker is in fact a sidekick to Bunsen...
