It is our hope that this collection of humor will help make us laugh at ourselves, and hopefully live a more compassionate cruelty-free lifestyle.

Some months back, a congresswoman, Cynthia McKinney slapped a capital police officer, because he detained her, not knowing who she was. An Atlanta radio station contacted me to create a comedy production about the incident.
He asked that I take great care, that nothing in the comedy production would appear racial in nature.
I decided on doing a movie trailer, as if this incident was made into a movie. The casting of which celebrities would play these roles and avoiding racial overtones was difficult, until I hit on the perfect source, The Muppets.
The voices of Kermit The Frog as The Capital Police Officer, Miss Piggy as Rep. Cynthia McKinney, Ernie from Sesame Street as the Taxi Driver, Big Bird as the Cell Phone Salesman and the Movie Trailer Announcer were performed by Mark Edgemon.
