was still dead, in spite of valiant attempts to resurrect him.
But a New Hope loomed on the horizon when another beloved fictional character,
Chris Farley, passed on in a manner eerily similar to Kermit's death.
This page chronicles the events
of those days, when a faint glimmer of light still shone in our hearts.
(Or should that be "shined"?).
Subject: Announcement: This Weekend's Wake. From: Captain Infinity Newsgroups: alt.fan.tom-servo Date: Sat, 20 Dec 1997 Message-ID: <email@example.com> Since the Resurrectionists have, as yet, been unable to revive Kermit Krab in time for him to be killed again in time for this weekend's wake, the wake this weekend will be held for Chris Farley, instead. He and I almost exchanged email once in which he would have told me that he had been an active lurker in alt.fan.tom-servo since the late sixties. No one ever successfully trolled him, not even jdn, though many may have tried had they known he would be leaving us so soon. This weekend's wake will be held on Undernet channel #ChrisFarleyIsDead?WhoHasTheGrenadine? Also, since so many have asked, next weekend's wake of Jim Carrey *will* go on as planned even if the hit is unsuccessful, but it will be rescheduled if Kermit comes back to life. Thank you for your time. ** Captain Infinity

But Chris Farley's spirit moved on to, we hope, a better place...and Kermit Krab resumed being dead.
Still he was much in our hearts and thoughts, and we mentioned him often. Here are a couple:

Sounds like whacky fun! Do they do the old "Tortoise Beats Hare" trick? "Yo, speedy! Over here!" Does one of them drool and say "She touched Mr. Peppy!"? What's a "quantum mirror"?
