Big Bird and Michelle Obama film kiddie health PSAs, bond on Twitter

Mitt Romney’s nemesis paid a visit to the White House to film some kiddie health PSAs with noted nutrition advocate Michelle Obama:

Even after Big Bird left the nest, the lovefest continued on Twitter:

That much cloying sweetness can’t be good for our health.

    Big Bird is only six years old … what is it with the Obamas and using children to guilt adults into liberal policies.

    • Joe W.

      Only 6??? I recall watching Big Bird with my daughter in the early 1970s…

      • Matthew Koch

        In the muppet world isn’t big bird supposed to be a kid?

        • Joe W.

          Beats me…I don’t watch it anymore. My daughter is 41 now. All I know is this is the REAL world, and that bird is 40.

          • Matthew Koch

            He must be just like obama’s voters. Physically they’re adults. Emotionally, not so much.

          • Joe W.

            True that!!!

      • Avey Owyns

        On SS, he’s perpetually six.

  • Stone Bryson

    I think Big Bird’s 15 minutes expired years ago – time for it to fly into the sunset. And don’t even get me started on the First Lady…

  • Ingrid Cherry

    If this were any more saccharine, it’d kill a diabetic.

    • Matthew Koch

      As Wilford Brimley might say, “DIE-UH-BEET-US.”

    Big Bird: Golly gee Mrs. Obama, be sure to thank your husband for allowing us birds the choice and the right to squash our eggs if we don’t want them!

  • Joe W.

    Which one is “Big Bird”??

  • Tangchung

    BBQ Big Bird ….aka…BBQBB would be great

  • NRPax

    She’s looking at Big Bird as if she’s wondering how he’d taste deep-fried.

    • Joe W.

      With a side of lobster tail and a tamale.

      • Cool_Arrow

        Bert pays Ernie 10 bucks. “Yeah, Ernie, Big Bird really does have a big butt.”

  • Stephanie Warren

    Big Bird better watch out, Michelle might lure him into the back room and eat him.

  • TugboatPhil

    If Hollyweird wasn’t so chicken shiite, there’d be enough comedy gold in this for several years.

    • Love of Country

      Well, Moochele has been feeling left out. It seems patriotic tax-payers have been giving her husband the Big Bird for the last five years.

        Dittohead alert!!!!!!!!

  • BlueStateRepub

    Then she cooked Big Bird and ate him with a side of arugula.

  • Harry A

    i can see clearly everyone is in disagreement with me on this (LOL) but idk i sorta think that this is like the role the first lady should have. you know like Laura Bush appeared on seseame street many times as well. as opposed to the push radical health care change that Hillary Clinton tried.

  • walterc

    Especially since we both love healthy foods Like lobster, ribs and French Fries. Nothing says healthy like French Fries right Big Butt?

    • grais

      And fat cakes. Don’t forget the fat cakes.

  • Rafael Eduardo Peña-Rios Riber

    whatever happened to eat one of the members of the 4 groups of food every day lessons?
    now its all “eat veggies because fat is bad”

    • grais

      Didn’t Michelle redesign the food pyramid into a plate, so dumbasses would know where to put their glasses of milk and their forks?


  • Ron Hughes

    Although I am not a parent. Since when did the health and welfare of children cease being the responsibility of their parents?

  • Maxx

    Make sure to eat healthy kids while you can because by the time her hubby is done with this economy, you’ll all be eating government cheese.
