Miss Piggy Wishes Fellow Gay Icon Freddie Mercury A Happy Birthday

Freddie Mercury, the lead singer of Queen (and not-so-secret gay man), died of AIDS in 1991, but that's not stopping Miss Piggy from wishing him a happy birthday, which occurred this Sunday:

It's kind of creepy to have a puppet wish a dead man happy birthday, but whatever.  Google also honored Mercury, but sadly did not make mention of the AIDS advocacy taking place in his name.  If you would like to honor Freddie Mercury by making a donation to the Mercury Phoenix Trust, an AIDS foundation in his name, you can do so by clicking here.

Ulterior motive for posting this:  I once took an online test, "What Muppet are you?" and got Miss Piggy.  My mother refuses to let me live that down, even though it's been about twelve years since it happened.  This one's for you, ma!
