As we approach the 20th anniversary of September 11th, old conspiracy theories about the terrorist attacks are starting to resurface. While most of them have been disproven by everyone from the U.S. government to Popular Mechanics, one conspiracy has never been thoroughly investigated: “Did Kermit cause 9/11?” from Why ‘Kermit Did 9/11’ is the Conspiracy Theory That Won’t Croak [Mel Magazine] posted by chavenet (12 comments total) 3 users marked this as a favorite
 
Of course Bert was in on it, because Bert Is Evil.

It was Kermit's evil doppleganger, Constantine. You can tell he's evil because he's got a mole on his face.

"It was Kermit's evil doppleganger, Constantine."
Without looking at the link I imagined an Alan Moore alternate reality version. Thank you.

And, at present, there’s still a popular meme showing Elmo delighting at the site of a nuclear explosion.

Surely that should read sight, Elmo as depicted is not at ground zero.

This would be a lot more funny to me if my resemblance to Bert didn't result in extra screening every time I went through US customs.
