Today in Puppets

a-poor-muppet.jpgHere is Lily, a new Sesame Street puppet created especially for a primetime special to "raise awareness about hunger faced by American families." She is probably poor, certainly hungry, and VERY PINK. Puppet class warfare ensues when she "visits a community garden and encounters popular Muppets like Elmo, Rosita, Bert and Grover" and steals all the gardening equipment to sell them at a pawn shop so she can buy a cheeseburger.
