Puppets Pissed at Romney for Threatening to Kill Big Bird; March on Washington

When Mitt Romney called a hit on Big Bird, puppeteers called a protest march.

Okay, so there weren't a million of them, but there were definitely more puppets strolling down East Capitol Street than on an average day. Well, at least of the literal kind. 

Chants included:

"Know puppets, know peace!" (which sounds exactly like "No puppets, no peace!")

"Whose street? Sesame Street!"

"What do we want? Cookies! When do we want them? Now!"
