NEW YORK (October 7, 2012)--Big Bird was in the news this week so, it seemed fitting to find him perched at the parody news report on NBC's "Saturday Night Live” Saturday night.
Big Bird joined Seth Meyers at the "Weekend Update" anchor desk, but the popular "Sesame Street" character declined to comment on presidential hopeful Mitt Romney's vow to cut federal funding for PBS.
Big Bird said he didn't want to "ruffle any feathers."
He told Meyers how he had learned of being mentioned on Wednesday's debate.
He said he'd gotten "a million tweets." From real birds, that is.
Since then, he said he was feeling very famous, standing tall above every other 8-foot talking bird.
Big Bird wrapped up his appearance with a joke befitting his childish sense of humor.
Question: Who like debates?
