SESAME STREET — Forensics reports have confirmed that Swine Flu may have contributed to the death of Kermit the Frog Saturday morning.

Media outlets have been abuzz since Kermit the Frog was found dead in a Sesame Street alley outside Miss Piggy’s luxury penthouse apartment. A report released to the media Saturday by the Sesame Street Coroner’s Office confirmed what many had already suspected: “Swine Flu was a contributing factor in the death of Kermit the Frog.”

The report continues that the viral strain found within the tissue of the deceased frog is not the H1N1 variety that has caused concern in the recent weeks, but is a related, sexually transmitted from of the virus.

Sesame Street mayor, Oscar the Grouch, cautions that there is no need for alarm. “This isn’t the kind of sickness you get from getting sneezed on,” he said in a telephone interview.

Police have confirmed that Miss Piggy is now a “pig of interest” in the ongoing investigation. “We would like to speak with Miss Piggy about her wherabouts Friday night and Saturday morning,” said Chief Fozzy Bear of the Sesame Street Police Force at a press conference Saturday afternoon. “It’s not entirely clear yet whether Kermit the Frog was already dead from the flu prior to impact, or if it was the impact that killed him. What we do know is his body has trauma consistent with having fallen from a significant height.”

Chief Fozzy Bear reiterated the assurance that the variety of Swine Flu with which Kermit had been infected is not contagious.

Calls to Miss Piggy’s press agent were not immediately returned.

More to come.
