Two new muppets for Northern Ireland

As noted some time ago, Sesame Street Workshops, with $1 million from the American Ireland Fund are producing 26 shows to teach tolerance to children in Northern Ireland [toilet training for ursine mammals? – Ed]. The latest news on the project is that there are to be two new muppets added to the cast list specifically for here.. Could they have anyone in particular in mind.. [“Pity about the mountain”, indeed – Ed]btw, in case you missed the memo.. apparently I’m Statler or Waldorf.
