    Muppet Theory

    I'm coming to terms with the fact that I'm a chaos muppet. A slate writer describes the Chaos vs Order Muppet paradigm. It isn't a very well developed theory, but the author explains that is because she, herself, is a chaos muppet. That's an unapologetic neglect that I can get behind. Especially because she changes her argument at the end to say that she isn't really a chaos muppet.

    So maybe I still am not a chaos muppet. After all, I alphabetize things all the time.

    When I took INFJ to a meeting at the anarchist collective, one of her comments was that she liked it but that she thought it was very messy in their space. She asked me if we were going to start one, could she help keep it tidy? I looked at her and said "Okay, you can make sure all of our books about anarchist political theory are properly alphabetized." She punched me in the arm. Apparently, only one of us is a chaos muppet.

    I thought this was going to have a test!

    David Wong, regarding Chicago
    Six centuries ago, the pre-Colombian natives who settled here named this region with a word which in their language means "the Mouth of Shadow". Later, the Iroquois who showed up and inexplicably slaughtered every man, woman and child renamed it "Seriously, Fuck that Place". When French explorer Jacques Marquette passed through the area he marked his map with a drawing of a brownish blob emerging from between the Devil's buttocks.

    I wanted to be a chaos muppet, but my eyebrows categorize me as an order muppet.

    I think I'm a Faux Chaos Muppet. I dunno if that's good or bad. I just know I loved Kermit and hated Miss Piggy with a passion.

    LOL. That might make you a frustrated Order Muppet forced to adopt the role of a Chaos Muppet by her life circumstances. Or you could just be a self-hating Chaos Muppet.

    I got frustrated with the local anarchist book store because they very deliberately refused to care about the roof leaks. I dug up a bunch of buckets and moved their zine library out of harm's way, but apparently since nobody emptied the buckets at closing time it still flooded the bottom shelves. Those fuckers. They make me feel like an Order Muppet.

    I was going to make a quiz, but I got distracted watching the Muppet Show. Maybe you should do it.

    I think in ways, I'm both. Probably more Chaotic, guess.

    My brain is like the cock pit in the Imagine Dragons' Video.

    I just wish the control agent was like a black & white mad Panda instead of a Pink Yoda-esque teddy.

    You've pointed out a flaw in the dichotomy. There should be a Balance Muppet.

    Ha ha ha ... my Order Muppet teaches Muay Thai kickboxing and she offered to be my bodyguard.
