Big Bird can make it rain on his own

Big Bird is a billionaire. A Warren Buffett, Eric Schmidt, Steve Jobs billionaire, which is pretty impressive considering that he is not a real person but rather a giant, yellow bird (which is a kind of terrifying concept if you actually think about it for a second.)

Advocates for continued federal funding of the Public Broadcasting Service got their undies in a twist Wednesday night when GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney said that he would cut funding to the beloved TV station to reduce the national deficit.

“I like PBS. I love Big Bird … But I’m not going to keep on spending money on things to borrow money from China to pay for it,” Romney said during the debate. So even as much as Romney “loves” the feathered “6-year-old,” he knows that sometimes you just have to take it out back and shoot it Old Yeller style.
