Halloween Edition: Muppets Occupy Sesame Street

AP - This week a group of rogue Muppets calling themselves the “99 percent brought to you by the letters F and U” took over Sesame Street. Camping out in front of the landmark Hooper’s Store, Occupy SS’s spokesmuppet Oscar the Grouch called on Sesame Street leaders Gordon and Maria to change the way Muppets on the famous street have been treated for more than 20 years. “I’ve been living in garbage while others like Big Bird have been living in DIY communes while Bert and Ernie sold out by working for the man. Humans on the street are living in houses with real walls! Now I love my garbage can but for most of us, we have no choice but to live on the street. Elmo has to draw himself a house for cryin’ out loud!”

Other muppets appear to feel Oscar’s anger at the way things have been handled by the human contingent on Sesame Street. One Cookie Monster stated “I haven’t been able to get my cookies at Hooper’s Store because of the lack of job opportunities here. Meanwhile the percent brought to you by the number 1 are rolling in cookie dough and we are left behind.”
