Big Bird Fired?!! 8 New Careers He May Be Forced to Consider

bigbird9Don't Jump, Big Bird!If Mitt Romney really likes Big Bird, he should consider what kind of a future his feathered friend will have if Sesame Street does indeed get shut down. Think about it: Big Bird's had the same gig for over 30 years now -- he can't possibly have the skill set necessary to compete in today's fiercely competitive job market! Sure, he knows his ABC's, but that won't help him get hired -- not with potential job cuts looming in the education field, too.

But without gainful employment, Big Bird's gonna end up out on the street (not that street -- you know what I mean). Nobody wants that (not those of us who actually DO like Big Bird, anyway).

So, based on his qualifications, here are a few careers Big Bird might want to consider exploring ...

We are in a recession! Cutting PBS won't be the end of PBS. I'm sure that if PBS needs more funds to keep going, they can go to their rich friends like Katy Perry, Anne Hathaway, and Mila Kunis. 

If your family was struggling financially, don't you think you would have to make cuts? No more premium cable channels, $100+ haircuts, weekly mani/pedi days, etc.

(And this is coming from a left-leaning moderate, so don't play that "Conservatives are evil" bull...)

Just like Bain..

Mitt will cut jobs to make sure businesses are profitable!!!!! And CEOs will be able to buy their private jets, remodel their kitchens, and then stash their new monies in offshore accounts so they don't pay taxes!!!!! Yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry Big Bird. Join your local unemployment office line... Along with Elmo and Oscar.

From Wall st to Main st. And now to Seasame st. How unfortunate...

OH NO!!! MITT ROMNEY IS GOING TO CUT PBS!!! THAT WOULD MAKE HIM A HORRIBLE PRESIDENT!!! SAVE YOURSELVES!!!!! *continues beating dead horse* So, you're whining about the demise of Big Bird? Send him a check. If that's all you got out of the debate, you must have a very low IQ.

Cutting PBS to save on the budget is like deleting one text message to free up space on your smartphone. PBS simply does not garner that much of the federal budget to make that much of a difference. And considering all the good PBS does, it seems idiotic to cut it. The money SHOULD be cut where it would get the most revenue. Personally, I'd start with Congress' paychecks and retirement funds. Those guys don't do enough to earn the paycheck they get.

I have a job idea for him. Slaughter him and ship him to a chick-fil-a to be fried.

I agree that this is one of the mistakes he has made, but this is probably the most mild mistake he has made during this whole race. Mitt Romney is a money hungry arrogant asshole. I don't care if you are a republican, a democrat, an independent, anything. If people would open their eyes they'd see he is a horrible man for president.
