Occupy Sesame Street

So even though Big Bird lives in a vacant lot, Oscar lives in a trash can, and Ernie and Bert live in a one-bedroom basement apartment, Sesame Street still needs to make a separate, poor Muppet.

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A new poverty-stricken Muppet will highlight the issue of hunger struggles on an episode of "Sesame Street", the show said in a statement on Tuesday.
And apparently, no one can point out that, with his $500 million or whatever of licensed merchandise revenue, Elmo is the Muppet 1%.
