    Know thyself: http://www.slate.com/articles/life/low_concept/2012/06/what_kind_of_muppet_are_you_chaos_or_order_.html

    The article saysChaos Muppets are out-of-control, emotional, volatile. They tend toward the blue and fuzzy. They make their way through life in a swirling maelstrom of food crumbs, small flaming objects, and the letter C. Cookie Monster, Ernie, Grover, Gonzo, Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and—paradigmatically—Animal, are all Chaos Muppets. Zelda Fitzgerald was a Chaos Muppet. So, I must tell you, is Justice Stephen Breyer.

    Order Muppets—and I’m thinking about Bert, Scooter, Sam the Eagle, Kermit the Frog, and the blue guy who is perennially harassed by Grover at restaurants (the Order Muppet Everyman)—tend to be neurotic, highly regimented, averse to surprises and may sport monstrously large eyebrows. They sometimes resent the responsibility of the world weighing on their felt shoulders, but they secretly revel in the knowledge that they keep the show running. Your first grade teacher was probably an Order Muppet. So is Chief Justice John Roberts. It’s not that any one type of Muppet is inherently better than the other. (Order Muppets do seem to attract the ladies, but then Chaos Muppets collect the chicken harems.) It’s simply the case that the key to a happy marriage, a well-functioning family, and a productive place of work lies in carefully calibrating the ratio of Chaos Muppets to Order Muppets within any closed system. That, and always letting the Chaos Muppets do the driving.

    Playing Rod (The Bert Rip-off) in Avenue Q in a couple of weeks so I guess that makes me an Order Muppet

    Orange, NSW, Australia with the Theatre company in town.
    So bit far away for anyone on here to worry about :S
    Had to do something to keep myself busy and stop myself going insane, university in a rural area has the downside of limited possibilities.

    I'm an order muppet and am checking to make sure my eyebrows don't become "monstrously large". Unlike other OMs, I won't let a Chaos Muppet drive my car.

    They didn't mention the most renown muppets Big Bird, Elmo or Snuffalopagus. I'd think I'd be a mix of Elmo or Big Bird.

    If I were a Muppet, I think I would either be Grover or Ernie... which makes me a Chaos Muppet!
