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.
