Won’t somebody think of the one-percenter puppets?

Oh, it’s real. And it’s hacktacular. A “Million Muppet March” is planned for Nov. 3 at the National Mall in Washington, D.C.

Sadly (and hilariously), the news comes from Reuters, not The Onion.

Reuters “reports” that the goal of the “puppet-based protest” is to save Big Bird from “possible extinction.”

One organizer, a 43-year-old Disney-affiliated animation exec named Michael Bellavia, calls it a “lovefest.” His firm, Animax Entertainment, is helping to promote the march.

The other organizer identifies himself as Chris Mecham, a 46-year-old student. Shocking, we know.

The Million Muppet March launched its Twitter account on Oct. 4. after the evil, Big Bird-hating Mitt Romney told debate moderator Jim Lehrer he would cut federal funding to PBS.

On Oct. 6, the organizers invited Occupy Wall Street to join in the Million Moocher Meltdown.

Odd, since Big Bird is an icky One Percenter.

Not that Sesame Workshop needs the dough. PBS generates hundreds of millions in revenue from product sales.

But, you know, priorities.

They might not number in the millions, but some Twitter users can’t wait to strap on their terrifying homemade Big Bird costumes and rally for corporate welfare. It’s For the Puppets!

We won’t be taking a road trip, but we do kinda like the sound of this. The mockery will be magnificent!

Make it happen!

    and people on the right wing are the ones wo turn everything political?

    • Shawn Smith

      No, we just want a political discussion of things that matter, like our ambassadors getting killed and our country collapsing in government debt. The left likes to turn political things like whether Big Bird keeps getting money he doesn’t need or gay people get to “marry” each other.

Also, current CEO also runs NPR. Ask Gary Knell if he thinks they really NEED fed funding for Sesame Street/Muppets, if it is more important than security for our Diplomats serving in violence ridden nations.

    Somebody might want to explain to these Million Muppet Marchers about the real world, people are unemployed, families are struggling to feed their children and to pay the bills. What we need is strong leadership, someone (R,R) with a clear plan to fix the economy
    and to get Americans working again so that they can provide for themselves. If the election comes down to Big Bird losing his job and Americans getting jobs, I hope they understand that one of these thing is not like the other.

    I attended the Romney Ryan rally in Lancaster Ohio yesterday. Outside a (small) gaggle of malcontents were protesting. Amonge them was a person dressed in the cheesiest costume I have ever seen, and unless he wants to continue to be represented as a ratty, thin necked, beady eyed yellow bird suffering from a bad case of bed head, Big Bird really should get a cease and desist order in motion right now. It was so bad, it was actually scaring some of the little kids.

        Boo. Hisss. OTOH, that warrants a “thumbs up”.

        Speaking of “Hillary” though, we have a cat named Hillary.
        Liberal female acquaintance: “Oh, you named her after Hillary Clinton?”
        Wife: “No. Sir Edmund. She is an explorer.”
        Me: “I wouldn’t name her after Hillary Clinton. Now, if I had a mean tempered female dog, …”

        If looks could kill. I mean, some people just have no sense of humor.

    Do these nimrods, dimwits and yokels have any concept of how large the number one million is?

    Farakhan only came up with only slightly under one third that number ages ago. And we all know how well that turned out…. EPIC FAIL!

    My guess, less than 100 show up. A number easily surrounded, contained, chided and graded while enjoying pints and quarts of Haagen Daas ice cream.

    The reason why Cutter is all aver the Big Bird theory is that the Obama campaign has nothing to go on. No jobs, poor economy, foood stamps, EBT cards, housing, no foreign security for the USA. The worst Pres. in history, so what does she wallow in?
    BIG BIRD! Small minds find things to focus on!

  • Adela Wagner

    We all know the Bird is worth around 1.5Mil. and the Exec.VP of Sesame workshop has said they really do not need the subsidy, so my question is..based on Obama’s blapping about “economic patriotism”…..where is theirs?

  • redheadgrl

    Just goes to show how the educational system has let America down. These people have no clue how business works. I’m surprised Big Bird didn’t escape from PBS long ago with the Millions of ad revenue they could earn. Marketing to kids is BIG $$ business. Also, can you imaging the bidding war among the cable networks to get Sesame Street?

    300,000 small business closed in the last three years (ours was one of them); Millions given to so called “green” companies at taxpayer expense; bankrupt; Fast & Furious, Libya (I could go on and on) and this is what Liberals care about? A non-profit (not sure how they get away with that, but okay), that also makes millions and can certainly support their programming without my support or the Governments support. PBS doesn’t need the Liberals dividing their supporters.
