#OccupySesameStreet

Seit Radiohead nicht bei den #OccupyWallstreet-Protesten aufgetreten sind, hat sich die #OccupySesameStreet-Meme verselbständigt (via MeFi), hier meine Favorites:

- Green frog savagely beaten after he tells officer that he's "dating a pig." #OccupySesameStreet (@PuffChrissy)
- Truly outrageous that 99% of the cookies are consumed by 1% of the monsters on PBS. #occupysesamestreet (@MichaelKBusch)
- I live in a trash can. I have a serious rage problem. I should be on Lithium but I can't get insured. I am the 99%. #OccupySesameStreet (@shiraselko)
- In a democracy, it's your vote that counts. On Sesame Street, it's your Count that votes. Ah-ah-ah! #occupysesamestreet (@h0mfr0g)

#OccupySesameStreet: The Making of a Meme

Und das ganze ergibt wahrscheinlich mehr Sinn, als den meisten bewusst sein dürfte, hier ein Alter Artikel von 2009: Not even ‘Sesame Street’ is safe from recession

The crisis on Wall Street is plaguing Sesame Street. Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit producer of “Sesame Street” and other kids’ programs, is cutting about one-fifth of its work force because of the economic downturn. The New York-based company said Wednesday that it’s eliminating 67 of 355 staff positions.

Declaring it is “not immune to the unprecedented challenges of today’s economic environment,” the company pronounced a need “to operate with fewer resources in order to achieve our strategic priorities.”
