Vintage Kermit the Frog T-shirt. “Its not easy being green” was first coined by Kermit the Frog, as he expressed his discontent in life. Poor Kermit. What could be harder than being a simple frog trying to woo a glamorous Miss Piggy? Kermit lamented his green coloring, because it “blends in with so many ordinary things” making him feel too ordinary. Why couldn’t he be an exciting color like red or even yellow?
While Kermit analogized his green hue with being too common, the color can be used to describe many different emotions or characteristics: “green with envy,” “greenie” as being an environmentally-conscious person, “green means go” with traffic lights, etc. Green can also mean new or inexperienced. For us green is the color of hope! 🐸💚 ♻️ please recycle!
