Hey Bros!

Welcome to Twitter in Focus where media comes to die!  Today’s contestant is Frank Oz!  Aka: Fozzy Bear and Yoda!  Let’s see what he’s tweeting!


January 16th:  “There have really been wonderful guesses. Thanks! Okay. So. I most identify with Grover and Fozzie. Grover because he’s pure, Fozzie because as a kid I really wanted to be in show biz too. I shouldn’t have put Yoda in the mix. He is way deep inside me, but I’m not that wise.”

I didn’t realize you did Grover too!  Awesome.  He’s like a skinny Cookie Monster.

January 16th:  “Okay. Now that I’ve bared my soul. What characters do you identify with?”

Cookie Monster.

January 18th:  “Yes I identified most with Grover and Fozzie, but there are bits of me in all of my characters. Me being boring is Bert, me pure is Grover, me obsessed-Cookie, me neurotic-Piggy, me insecure-Fozzie, me uptight-Sam, me crazed-Animal. I’m a bit like each of them. And so are you.”

Oh, yeah, Bert.  I can hear it now.

January 20th:  “I don’t know how I got here. I was this kid with low self esteem and a bit of talent. But a lot of people have talent and haven’t “made it.” Why did the planets line up for me? Why didn’t other talented people get their Jim Henson as a mentor? I don’t think I’ll ever know why.”

Wow.  Interesting.  Very insightful tweeting going on here.

January 20th:  “Just wondering if you’d be okay with letting me know where you’re from when you tweet me. Maybe just start a tweet to me with, Canada or Malaysia or maybe Toledo or Naiorobi or wherever. I just think it would be fun to know. I like including a lot of different types of people.”

January 20th:  “Okay. I have a problem. I LOVE everyone telling me where they are! It’s really great. And i love replying to everyone. But I have got to get to work. So with apologies I’m not going to be answering each one. I’ll do my best to answer some. But I also want time with my wife!”

Welcome to the Internet.  Stay.  Forever!

January 20th:  “Okay. As soon as I said I needed to work and that I wanted to spend time with my wife, I WENT RIGHT BACK TO TWITTER!! Is there a Twitter Re-hab Center anywhere? Okay. Be back tonight or tomorrow. LOVE hearing where youre from!”

Yes.  It’s called smashing your smart phone to pieces and getting a flip phone so you can’t access Twitter anymore.

23 hours ago:  “Jim Henson was both our leader and very often the instigator of play. He taught us that even when you’re doing something you don’t want to do you can still have fun doing it.”

Hmm, neat.

Okay, let’s rate Frank’s tweets.  I give him a 7 for Insanity, an 8 for Mustness and a 10 for Style.  That’s an overall score of 8.3, but I’m rounding it up to 9 because, ya know, COOKIE!
