A new student, from Spain, came to stay with us this weekend.
This morning I put BBC News on to give him a sense of our coverage of what is going on in the world today, and of the things that matter to the British people.
And what was the first story that we saw?
Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy are splitting up after forty years together.
I just hope that Miss Piggy did not commit adultery with Gonzo. Cheating swine.
