Stewart Stevenson Inducted Into Muppet Hall Of Fame

TRANSPORT minister Stewart Stevenson has become the first member of the Scottish Parliament to be inducted into the Muppet Hall of Fame.

The MSP for Banff and Buchan began his career as a laboratory assistant to Dr Bunsen Honeydew in the late 1970s.

During his time at Muppet Labs, Stevenson was shrunk, cloned, deflated, made invisible and blown up.

On one memorable occasion his eyes lit up when he was electrocuted.

Dr Honeydew said: "Stewart was my faithful assistant for many years. His bravery, his curiosity and his powers of recovery are all legendary. 

"Though I have to say I am deeply disturbed to learn he has been put in charge of an entire transport system. You may live to regret that."

Stevenson's talents extend beyond the world of science and he is known for an impressive Little Richard impersonation and his ability to 'beatbox'.

He has also performed a very moving version of Feelings and a spirited rendition of Danny Boy, accompanied by his close friends the Swedish Chef and Animal.

Stevenson, who is the first actual Muppet elected to Holyrood, said: "Meep, meep meep. Meep meep, meep meep meep."

Off to get my head shaved. Missing Buenos Aires. The weather was shit today in the UK so flew over there for half an hour but got bored. Courtney rang and said she is no  longer off to rehab but back in 'hab' so I'm calling my new club in Nice that. The missus wants me to buy Nice but I want to buy Budapest. It's more punk rock and cheaper. Well it was when I was there at 3.30 this morning.

Heard from my accountant that I have made more than one billion per cent on Buckingham Palace which I bought in the 90s so that's good. When I told my mad mate Gordon B that over coffee – love the stuff – he said something about 'talking about property and money is vulgar' but I said, Gordon, you've not got it have you? It's double punk rock. He agreed but I'm still not gonna manage him when he joins Runrig for their reunion stadium tour.

Off to Greenland for totally punk night. How Snooty Was My Nooty – totally mad new band playing there. Pony Le Bonk signed to my management company. Best group today since Oasis. That changed in the last minute. Now the best group since Pony Le Bonk is The Funktwits who are the best group since whoever I said was the best group before that.

Went into the office for a meet with God who wants me to sign his son. Kinda anthemic/Roses/Shaun/Shane rambling shtick. Total punk rock madness. Decided to go via Tierra del Fuego at twice the speed of sound so I could listen to genius Sean Lennon's new album which is genius and the best thing since his next album. Or the one after that. Thank fuck for money, it got me out of Glasgow.


Double blasted respect, old bean. Bang on about Budapest. Nice – too nice, right??? When you buy Budie can I come and stay? We've never really talked but I feel we have a deep soul connection esp since I handed you the demo CD of my band Mighty Splunk at your Incan club-night Now We're All Off To The Bank.

You are so right. About everything. Ever. Lennon S album after next is the bomb! Or going to be! You are just the best thing since the last best thing you mentioned was better than since then. I and all right-minded music fans love, revere and respect every syllable which pops out of that cute wee mouth of yours, and also all the unsaid like speech bubble things. Even your half-formed yawns create dynasties and business empires. You're spot-on about being double punk rock and ignoring leaders, major record companies, teachers, parking meters, and that. Good on you mate. Universally loved. Anyway better go and keep on building the altar in homage to you. Have been up all night waiting for you to post. If you ever get a nano-second to listen to the demos of my band Numpty I'd be so grateful. WUV you. Posted by Elsie at 6.15am.
C'mon! Man! Let's 'ave it! You know the truth bay-bee! It was mad seeing you last week in Alaska at Trumptown Thumpdown, your new Wednesday night with the Inuit indie massive. I loved the way you blanked me when I tried to speak to you. Double punk-rock, wee feller, big MAN!!! You are it, the shiznit!! And, if you ever get a chance to listen and then release on your label that quadruple box-set of hardhouse remixes of the 'Cream, you'd make me cream! Love on ya. Posted by The Scracker at 6.15am.

Best of luck with God's son, mate. Hear he can be a bit of a diva! What do you think of my demo tapes? Posted by Tim at 6.16am.
