RIP, Big Bird

It seems that US presidential candidate Romney wants to cut Big Bird. Though he may lose some support from the Sesame Street crowd over that, I understand that politics is full of difficult decisions like that. Programs get added and programs get cut; it's the way of the system.

Mr. Romney, Big Bird may not be "essential" in your view, but let's not waste him. I have one little suggestion for you, sir.

For the love of all the poor and hungry muppets of Sesame Street, I hope you have the decency to not let Big Bird be thrown out like yesterday's trash. Thanksgiving is just around the corner. Wouldn't it be nice to see some good come from this proposed government cutback? Wouldn't it be nice to know, sir, that little Ernie can finally go to bed with a full belly?

Rest in "Piece," Big Bird ... pieces of white meat, pieces of dark meat, perhaps pieces of wing and drumstick too. Oh, and by the way, Mitt. I trust you'll be able to afford to supply some of the side dishes too? A little sweet potato and a few veggies? Oh, and don't forget the apple pie.
