We haven’t written about Big Bird in a long time … last we remember was a post on people in horrible Big Bird costumes protesting presidential candidate Mitt Romney for wanting to defund PBS and “kill Big Bird.” But Big Bird is trending today because, well, because Twitter wants him to trend. We’ve been assured in the responses that Big Bird is 6, which means he just became eligible for the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, and he just got it Saturday.
I got the COVID-19 vaccine today! My wing is feeling a little sore, but it'll give my body an extra protective boost that keeps me and others healthy.
Ms. @EricaRHill even said I’ve been getting vaccines since I was a little bird. I had no idea!

Did Big Bird’s parents take him to get the shot or were they not involved? Was Big Bird going to get kicked off the show if he didn’t get the jab?

"Mommy, Daddy… Big Bird says I should get the shot to keep the Muppets safe! Why won't you let me get it?" https://t.co/brjY7afewO

Why would a bird take drugs meant for human consumption! Did you listen to Joe Rogan or something?

Who is this tweet for?
The little kids on Twitter, learning their ABCs and considering whether or not to get vaccinated? https://t.co/palqTVKrzP

That wasn’t a vaccination silly, it was a butter and herb baste.
Sounds like someone is going to be celebrating thanksgiving early! https://t.co/wetOiGaDOx
