Many many thanks to all my amazing followers who sent me dozens of messages tonight after this “askbox accident”. I give a Sheldon Saturnalia hug to each of you *thank you*
This edit is here to say that the Shenny ship will continue to sail despite all the hate some “fans” (if I can call them ‘fans’) try to spread among our community. We are proud to love Sheldon&Penny. We are proud to be Shenny shippers ♥
(I’ve taken the term “The Shenny Squad” from the wonderful shenny fanfiction “The Multiple Hypotheses Theorem” by thebluemartian. I love the “Shenny Squad” idea ^.~ and I thought that it’d fit really well with what I had in mind for my edit ^^)
SHENNY FOR THE WIN, yeah!
We need some Shenniness right now.

If you’ve seen ‘The Muppets,’ you know one of the movie’s big musical numbers is the song ‘Man or Muppet,’ which finds Jason Segel singing an impassioned duet with his Muppet brother Walter (voiced by Peter Linz) and contemplating each character’s essential manhood…or Muppet-ness.
Segel discussed the song during a recent interview with Spinner, talking about the difficulty of finding a real-life human “version” of Walter and saying that he thinks ‘Man or Muppet’ deserves a shot at an Oscar for Best Original Song at this year’s Academy Awards.
“At one point we wanted Michael Cera potentially to do the reflection of Walter in the mirror, in the big ‘Man or Muppet’ number,” Segel recalled during the interview. While Cera ultimately ended up not shooting the scene, the filmmakers were able to get ‘Big Bang Theory’ star Jim Parsons to step in, and Segel couldn’t be happier. “We couldn’t have lucked out more than Jim Parsons. I mean, what a perfect cameo, huh?”
Segel’s also a huge fan of the song, which was written by ‘Flight of the Conchords’ star Bret McKenzie. “I think that ‘Man or Muppet’ should be nominated for an Academy Award,” he told Spinner. “You can put that in print.”
