You Know Times Are Hard When ...

Sesame Street is laying off 1/5th of its staff. How much worse could it be? Those poor creatures are already sleeping in doorways and living on the street.

Come on, doesn't Oscar live in a garbage can? How much can it cost to heat that? I'll chip in. It is that Miss Piggy eating all that late night tapas and ordering from the martini bar. ~Mary

KarenandMary,
As it turns out, as they were looking at the layoff candidates, Oscar actually got laid off sometime in the 70s. No one has had the heart to tell him.

Nor should they tell Oscar. He'll go postal. We all know it. There will be muppet carnage all over Sesame Street.

Oh the...humanity!?!
