Manhattan, NY - Big Bird is not the only one relieved about the outcome of the 2012 Presidential election and the defeat of Mitt Romney, who vowed to cut PBS funding.
The Sesame Street Corporation was so elated that they were not going to be put out of business, that they handed out Christmas bonuses early. In addition to Big Bird's new yellow Ferrari 458 Spider and Burt and Ernie's custom diamond necklaces, Oscar the Grouch is feeling the perks too.
Oscar will be moving from his legendary old grey garbage can, into a barely used, twenty cubic foot dumpster. Said the filthy green Oscar of his new apartment, "I guess it beats a hole in the head. Do I get to keep all my stuff?"
Yes Oscar, you do!
Oscar is expected to be unceremoniously dumped into his new home sometime in the coming weeks. The move comes with a big new bag of garbage, fresh from Staten Island.
