Sadly, this is news in Obama’s world and not a parody.

Oh, dear. Giggling madly hurts!

So, this happened: “Sesame Street” has requested that the Obama campaign take down its pitifully desperate ad featuring Big Bird.

From “Sesame Street”:

Sesame Workshop Response to Campaign Ads

Sesame Workshop is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization and we do not endorse candidates or participate in political campaigns. We have approved no campaign ads, and as is our general practice, have requested that the ad be taken down.

D’Oh! Not a sunny day for Team Obama.

Mockery quickly ensued.

This Twitter user has a valid point, though.

Heh. It’s funny, because it’s true.

Oh, yes. We will. *Insert maniacal giggling here*

Update: The hilarious mockery continues.
