The large yellow puppet millionaire that dominated much of America’s election coverage after the first presidential debate seems to be on the same page with Beyoncé when it comes to post-election football spiking.

Who’s unemployed now? Well, even by the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ numbers, at least 12 million people. Big Bird’s job was never in jeopardy, though — America takes care of its puppets, no matter how famous or wealthy.

Yes, Muppets and vaginas everywhere exhaled in unison.

Welcome back? Did Big Bird go somewhere? Would he, please?

    I’m confused, not once did anyone say they were going to get rid of Big Bird’s job ( if that’s what you’d call it) or get rid of Big Bird. Leave it to the left to make things up out of thin air, pretty much what they run on.

      yellow journalism at its best

      welcome to yellow journalism, where everything is made up and the facts dont matter
      thats right! they are just like third party candidates

      Are deaf or delusional? Romney said that he would stop the subsidy to PBS in the first debate.

      • Rafael Eduardo Peña-Rios Riber

        he said it as in making it go private

          Uh, ‘PBS’ stands for PUBLIC Broadcasting Service. Get it?

          • Rafael Eduardo Peña-Rios Riber

            well, if it went solo it could change its name and find a way of broadcasting to all
            hell, in my country the 2 main channels (RCN and Caracol) are like PBS, they broadcast to the whole country and are private besides being the most watched

        PBS is what? 12% government funded? it would have survived and if it didn’t…you know what? Tough

      • my preciousss!!

        big bird alone is worth millions. sesame workshop worth a whopping 400million. google it. or research it in forbes mag richest creatures. in comparison to private enterprise Dora the Explorer worth around 300million. so yah, pbs can do without our tax money. (am not sure if big bird even pays taxes!).

        • Jain Hayles

          Gasp! The puppet Big Bird doesn’t pay taxes???!!! If you aren’t sure, why don’t you ask to see his past tax returns?

          • Guest

            you’re nitpicking this bigbird argument on the grounds of whether he paid or not paid his taxes? i couldn’t care less whether that chicken paid or not. the FACT is he became filthy rich on the backs of real people. he’ll be more than fine if he decides to leave the American people’s nest. but you obviously do not grasp the crux of this discussion, don’t you?

          • my preciousss!!

            is DISQUS playing bigbird on me? arrghh! i posted this.

        Something everyone with a brain supports doing. Only fascists think state-run propaganda stations are a good thing.

    At least Big Bird is willing to work. BO’s supporters got 99 weeks of unemployment and getting a job wasn’t even 1 thought.

    • Kyle Schroeck

      I got 99 paychecks and a job not one.

    Not sure what the BFD is. Big Bird neither taught my kids Spanish nor their illegal alien classmates (who held the class back) English.
    It’s worse for my grand-baby !
    Don’t even get me started on the gay carp that they’re pushing lately too !
