Fox News’ ‘Follow the Money’ made some waves this week by making claims the movie ‘The Muppets’ sends an anti-capitalist message to kids. Scoff all you want, but it just might be true. Here are 14 signs that the Muppets just might be Communists:
1. Kermit the Frog, Fozzy Bear and Miss Piggy are joined on their next adventure by a giraffe known only as Lenin.
2. Miss Piggy can no longer bring home the bacon.
3. Dr. Bunsen Honeydew begins new experiments for developing weapons of mass destruction in an effort to launch a new Cold War.

7. Fozzie Bear launches a new bit that starts with, “What’s the deal with corporations keeping the man down?”
8. It’s revealed that Scooter’s real last name is Guevara.
