Kermit and Piggy looking over The Sun.

The Sun is a daily tabloid newspaper published in the United Kingdom and owned by News Corporation. It has the tenth-largest circulation of any newspaper in the world and the largest circulation of any daily newspaper in the United Kingdom.

Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy were guest editors on January 26, 2012 in a promotion for the United Kingdom premiere of The Muppets.[1] In a Twitter posting about the honor, Kermit tweeted, "Any gossip attributed 2 Miss Piggy & involving me is NOT THE TRUTH. Thanks."[2] He also tweeted, "Just read over Bizarre section. Wonder if it was named after Great Gonzo?"[3]

This is a reference to The Sun, which features photographs of topless women on the third page, just on the inside of the cover.
