What were the writers thinking??

A new Muppet is introduced!  Her name is
Lily, and . . . wait for it . . . she lives in poverty.

This is the only picture I could find of Lily
where she did not look out-of-her-mind ecstatic.
Now is that because she's delirious from hunger,
or just because she's a Muppet?

Bert:        Yep, everybody is doing pretty well here on Sesame Street....
                 Oh! Except Lily. She lives in poverty.

Ernie:       So, like, if you don't have a house, that's where you live??

Grover:    Don't her parents work? What are they, lazy?

Bert:         Shh. Here she comes now. Ix-nay on the overty-pay.

Leave it to Sesame Street to put a positive spin on poverty.
