The question came up at dinner one night, from a conversation on Papa-Bug’s Facebook wall.
Is Yoda a Muppet?
We debated over dinner, but ultimately we didn’t know. So an impromptu homeschooling project was born. We wrote a letter.
Brother-Bug crafted the message (with some grammatical guidance from me) and he helped me look up the address on the internet. We mailed our letter off.
And we waited.
And a couple of weeks ago, we got a response!!
It was really exciting to open that letter. I could tell that Brother-Bug felt like a superstar because you know…The Muppets sent him a letter!!
You’re wondering aren’t you?
Yoda is NOT a Muppet.
Per the letter he received, a Muppet is defined as
“…a goofy puppet that has a particular style and acted in a sort of slapstick comedy style.”
And now we know.
This kind of project makes me happy we homeschool. I think we might be writing more letters in the future. Mail is so fun.
