According to the clock, it’s still April Fool’s Day, which is when I said I would post the finalists for the 2010 Ugly Muppet Toy Pageant. So, are you ready for the ugliness? We at ToughPigs headquarters have spent the past weeks combing through your entries and scouring the globe for ugly Muppet toys, and now the time has come. Now it’s up to you to decide which toys are the ugliest of the ugliest, and which toy in particular is the ugliest of the ugliest of the ugliest.
Here’s how it works: Below, you will find 16 finalists. Send your votes to me – Ryan@ToughPigs.com – by April 22. Rate each toy on a scale of 1 to 5, with 1 being “not that ugly” and 5 being “extreeeeemely ugly.” Include your color commentary on each toy. A big part of the fun of the pageant is seeing how creatively the Tough Pigs readership can describe the repulsiveness of various toys.
So. Here are some ugly toys.
So there they are. It’s interesting, isn’t it, that there are two Piggys and two Red Fraggles, but only one Kermit? I think it’s interesting, anyway. Send your votes and commentary ASAP to Ryan@ToughPigs.com, and let the ugliness wash all over you.
