Mister Bloomberg kissed Miss Piggy again, and his girlfriend didn’t like it.
The fateful exchange came on Tuesday, when Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced Muppets creator Jim Henson’s estate donated nearly 400 puppets, costumes and props to the Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria.
Asked about the subsequent kiss he shared with Miss Piggy during his weekly WOR radio show this morning, the mayor said his girlfriend Diana Taylor disapproved.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg held a Muppet-themed press conference earlier today where he announced that the Muppets will be “the official NYC Family Ambassadors” in 2012, but all the action was the romantic tension between Mr. Bloomberg and one of the Muppets, Miss Piggy.
“Can I throw Miss Piggy a kiss, because we’re friends?” Mr. Bloomberg asked before bending over and planting one on Miss Piggy’s cheek.
Ms. Piggy asked how the kiss compared with Mr. Bloomberg’s famous smooch with Lady Gaga, to which Mr. Bloomberg quipped “I never kiss and tell.”
