  • Paul

    Gregory and Nigel are looking well.

  • circles

    Its a pity Oscar just announced he’s stepping down though.

  • Why’s Comical Marty in the photo shoot? Isn’t this a job for Jeffrey and Gerry, the junior ministers, or ‘Crazy Cat’ Ruane?

  • Peter Brown

    Any truth in the rumour that there are going to be 108 new NI muppets featured?

    Hangs head in shame…..

  • crow

    Its hard to tell who is pulling the strings on these puppets.

  • darth rumsfeld

    Those muppets in full
    Kermit- Bazza McElduff
    Miss Piggy- Arlene Foster
    Fozzy bear- Ian Junior

    Beaker- Pootsie

    Punt’s just too scary to be a muppet

  • crow

    Sorry rumsfeld but sesame street has different characters(Big bird, Oscar the grouch and the count etc etc). Thats the Muppet show you are thinking of.

  • crow

    I wonder if the orange order will be allowed to march down Sesame street?

  • crow

    Or will some of the sketches go something like this….” I is for ink. R is for red. A is for apple…what does this make kids?” and so on and so on.

    “Potto and Hilda are a combination that work well together, and today we saw a very strong message of sharing that we would all do well to share,” said Mr McGuinness.

    “We have an 82-year-old unionist and a 57-year-old republican agreeing to share power, and they have done so since May last year.

    Am I the only one who’s slightly worried by one of the leaders of the Assembly taking direction from Muppets?

  • “Am I the only one who’s slightly worried by one of the leaders of the Assembly taking direction from Muppets?”

    Surely more worrying is the assembly being headed by a pair of muppets, no?

    Photo competition: Spot the real muppet.

    On a general point, we shouldn’t be promoting the Butcher of the Bogside as some friendly character associated with children’s television. For those affected by the murder and torture carried out by the Londonderry Sinn Fein PIRA terrorists, how should they explain it to their children?

    …. yes son, SF PIRA carried out mass murderer … the leaders murdered and bombed their way to power. Just like the bully in the playground … but a bit more serious.

    What a great role model for a future generation.

  • RepublicanStones

    sorry P&J;, there is no trolls in Sesame st.

  • seimi

    One of these kids is doin’ his own thing… 🙂

    P&J;? There was a phonecall for you. Your life will be delivered on Friday, ok?

    This was brought to you by the letters I, R and A, and by the number 32 🙂


    Martin denies the rumour that debate and discussion are stifled within Republicanism and introduces two Sinn Fein activists who will investigate this slur. “No one pulls their strings” said McGuinness. “It’s time to put on make up, it’s time to get things right, it’s time to get things started, it’s time to face the music in the Shinner house tonight” said the Foyle MP.

    NB. I know it’s Sesame Street, I know.

  • PeaceandJustice

    RepublicanStones – “there is no trolls in Sesame st.” That rules you out. But is Sesame Street Northern Ireland style introducing a new character ‘The Terrorist Butcher’ as one of the ‘good guys’?

    Even with the photoshoot, they could have been more sensitive to the families of the victims. It’s hard enough for victims to bring up children on their own without having their homes violated with pictures of a leader of a group responsible for mass murder – Sinn Fein PIRA.

  • Slartibuckfast

    Just because he’s invading your favourite educational show, Mr Frazer.

  • Steve

    lol p&j;he nailed you and your come back was pathetic lol

  • Belfast Gonzo

    ‘The only reason Martin could find to smile now that Ian had gone came one day when a puppeteer missed Potto and slipped his hand into the wrong hole.’

  • Crataegus

    God it is good to be able to laugh at them, definitely a sign of change.

  • “there is no trolls”

    The muppets at Sesame Tree have work to do 🙂

  • If you guessed this thing is not like the others..

    Caption: One of these things is not like the other….one of these things does not belong…”

    “said the Foyle MP. ”

    There has never been a Sinn Fein Foyle MP.

  • There is some substance in Lurig’s comment. Comical Marty is a resident of Foyle and we have this Londonderry City result: 1918–1922 Eoin MacNeill (Sinn Féin).

  • Slartibuckfast


    Comical Marty. Parapoliticians. Sinner duckwaddles. Athboy Strategy. Patriot priests. AASholes.

    Yep, it’s been some time since I’ve encountered your wibble. Who’s your MP in Cloud Cuckoo Land btw?

  • UFB

    iS P&J;really silly Billy weep’in Willy ?
