Whether you think Occupy (insert city, destination, school here) is serious, important, impactful (insert adjective here) or not, the internet always has its own views on such events. After the #OccupyWallStreet movement sprang up across the country, it finally reached its ultimate destination: Sesame Street. Like most other things on the internet, it all started with a tweet: “Urgent phone call to roommates #occupysesamestreet.” Soon after, comedians blew up their own twitter accounts with messages like “Why isn’t Reporter Kermit covering this? #occupysesamestreet.” and “Truly outrageous that 99% of the cookies are consumed by 1% of the monsters on PBS. #OccupySesameStreet.” Take a side of humor with your heaping liberal dinner and be comforted by the thought that all of the Muppets are on your side.
You can read the best of the #OccupySesameStreet tweets here and the next time you march on your city, don’t forget that some muppets are living in trash cans. #OCCUPYSESAMESTREET
