and indeed she is, by thousands of gay men ! I'd like to see you explain that one in an article ! I agree with what you said, being a puppet, i don't particularly see why Henson are soooooooo obsessed with slimming her down, but i don't think they want to make her really skinny, just a little less chubbier than usual. I don't particulary think they've used her weight to make jokes OR a point - it's just the way she always has been from the start. It might have had something to do with the stuffing they used at the time or something.
