Big Bird wings it to ‘Saturday Night Live’

NEW YORK – In a week when Big Bird was in the news, it seemed fitting to find him perched at the parody news report on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.”

But joining Seth Meyers at the “Weekend Update” anchor desk, the popular “Sesame Street” character declined to comment on presidential hopeful Mitt Romney’s vow to cut federal funding for PBS. Explaining why, Big Bird said he didn’t want to “ruffle any feathers.”

He told Meyers how he had learned of being mentioned on Wednesday’s debate. He said he’d gotten “a million tweets.” From real birds, that is.

Since then, he said he was feeling very famous, standing tall above every other 8-foot talking bird.

In closing, Big Bird shared a joke befitting his childish sense of humor.

Question: Who like debates?

Answer: de-fishes.
