Elmo and Big Bird aren't going down without a
fight peaceful protest!
When Mitt Romney made his now-infamous remarks about PBS (which stands for Public Broadcasting Service, btw), threatening to cut its funding to tackle the national debt, he shocked us all.
So Michael Bellavia, an El Lay animation executive, had the idea for a Million Muppet March. And after he bought the domain name for his brainchild, he then realized that Idaho student Chris Mecham had separately thought of the idea and made it's own Facebook page.
One phone call later and the two are now working together to get this protest moving!
Set for November 3 at the National Mall in D.C., the march created by these two Sesame Street fans is gaining steam! So be prepared for a lot of puppets and skits to go down at this love-fest!!
