Oh, dear. Giggling madly hurts!

So, this happened: “Sesame Street” has requested that the Obama campaign take down its pitifully desperate ad featuring Big Bird.

Big Bird isn't happy with Team Obama:

So President Obama puts up an ad with Big Bird in it, and Sesame Street asks him to take it down. WOW!

From “Sesame Street”:

Sesame Workshop Response to Campaign Ads

Sesame Workshop is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization and we do not endorse candidates or participate in political campaigns. We have approved no campaign ads, and as is our general practice, have requested that the ad be taken down.

D’Oh! Not a sunny day for Team Obama.

Mockery quickly ensued.

RT @SeanGHiggins: So, let me get this right: Obama is doing so badly now that even #BigBird doesn't want to associated with him?

OMG, how hilarious. Sesame Street is telling the Obama campaign to get off the Big Bird thing!

Scooter RT @BenjySarlin: I imagine a Muppet process server stopping by Obama campaign office today to drop off googly-eyed cease and desist.

This Twitter user has a valid point, though.

I, for one, am disappointed that Sesame Street has demanded that Team Obama take down the idiotic Big Bird ad. Too few have seen it.

— RB (@RBPundit) October 9, 2012

Heh. It’s funny, because it’s true.

You didn't get away with using Big Bird as a campaign prop, Obama, but don't worry. We're going to talk about how you tried.

— John Hayward (@Doc_0) October 9, 2012

Oh, yes. We will. *Insert maniacal giggling here*

Update: The hilarious mockery continues.

When Obama went to the 1st Presidential debate the only thing he came back with is Big Bird. Oh! Wait… NOT according to Sesame Street!
