Kermit was very large; about the size of a small gorilla. The viewing windows were about a meter wide and a 1.33 meters high and he could fill one completely. He was the alpha male, but the power shifted back and forth between him and his long time buddy Darrell.

Kermit had a fetish. If he saw an interesting pair of shoes or boots; those that were brightly colored, odd in shape or especially those with flickering lights, he would follow the individual wearing the shoes from viewing area to viewing area. Just to get a glimpse.

He'll be sadly missed.

Beg to differ.

I was around the chimps enough to recognize
that moving to Texas was a step down for them.

The smarter chimps could count up to seven.
Can you find that in the Lone Star state???

It IS Ohio State. Would you expect anything good to come from there?
