Hilarious: Million Muppet March planned by 46-year-old student


Won’t somebody think of the one-percenter puppets?

Million Muppet March? You mean, this isn’t parody? Reuters, seriously?? tinyurl.com/9kqtykc

Oh, it’s real. And it’s hacktacular. A “Million Muppet March” is planned for Nov. 3 at the National Mall in Washington, D.C.

I had to double check the “Million Muppet March” link. Thought it was The Onion. It’s not. So “Occupiers for Sesame Street” was taken?

Sadly (and hilariously), the news comes from Reuters, not The Onion.

Reuters “reports” that the goal of the “puppet-based protest” is to save Big Bird from “possible extinction.”

It’s clear from this story that the “Million Muppet March” is the brain child of two human muppets after they’ve toked several bowls.

One organizer, a 43-year-old Disney-affiliated animation exec named Michael Bellavia, calls it a “lovefest.” His firm, Animax Entertainment, is helping to promote the march.

Ahh-just as I thought. Michael Bellavia, the organizer of the million muppet march is affiliated w an advertising agency for Disney. #heehee

Guess what, gang? We’re behind this facebook.com/millionmuppetm… and this too… fb.me/1Gyg8Tpgl

The other organizer identifies himself as Chris Mecham, a 46-year-old student. Shocking, we know.

No surprise that one d-bag trying to start a “Million Muppet” pro-PBS march is a 46yr old student. GET A JOB ca.reuters.com/article/entert… #tcot

Lost in the Million Muppet March article (but highly relevant) is the fact that one of the creators is a 46 year old….university student.

The Million Muppet March launched its Twitter account on Oct. 4. after the evil, Big Bird-hating Mitt Romney told debate moderator Jim Lehrer he would cut federal funding to PBS.

This is happening. Grab a Muppet and get to DC 11/3 #MillionMuppetMarch cc: @firedbigbird

On Oct. 6, the organizers invited Occupy Wall Street to join in the Million Moocher Meltdown.

Odd, since Big Bird is an icky One Percenter.

While Rome burns, the left is planning a Million Muppet March to save PBS’s corporate welfare

@lilmissrightie If those assholes donated the money they’re wasting on this crap to PBS, they could more than cover the fed’s contribution.

Not that Sesame Workshop needs the dough. PBS generates hundreds of millions in revenue from product sales.

A bunch of clueless liberals gathering together thinking they are saving something that is in no danger news.yahoo.com/million-muppet… via @yahoonews

— Carolyn Hildebrand (@Carolynahil) October 12, 2012

They might not number in the millions, but some Twitter users can’t wait to strap on their terrifying homemade Big Bird costumes and rally for corporate welfare. It’s For the Puppets!

Really want to be part of the Million Muppet March in DC on Nov 3rd, defending public broadcasting. That’s going to be a lovely sight. #PBS
