All that talk back in 2012 about Mitt Romney wanting to kill Big Bird actually amounted to nothing, as scrappy little Sesame Workshop cut a sweet deal with premium cable channel HBO to crank out new episodes and draw in even more revenue.
But that doesn’t mean Sesame Street has forgotten about the least fortunate of us. Well, it did for a while, but now Sesame Workshop has checked back in on muppet Lily, who was experiencing food-insecurity back in 2011, and received she’s now homeless.

Is it just us, or is “to raise awareness” shorthand for” do absolutely nothing that would require personal sacrifice “?
Geez, wtf do the Sesame Street writers have against poor Lily? pic.twitter.com/ zm55lne0ga

For those know … … if “Sesame Street” is the best place to teach preschool children about homelessness, The Hill reports that Lily” will be featured in upcoming online videos and interactive activities” designed for children aged 2 through 6 … so infants will be able to log in and learn about homelessness there.
What about about Oscar the grouch? He’s been homeless since I was a kid that was 34 years ago! I dont get it!

What’s Oscar? Does he have a beach home we aren’t aware of as an audience?

Soooo, was Oscar living in a trashcan just an “alternative lifestyle choice”. pic.twitter.com/ MRBsI0Fcwa

I hope they’re not advocating street-living as a healthy life option.
