Life on the Street


Do you think the rising cost of rent is effecting the Muppets on Sesame Street?

Everywhere I go these days, it seems the cost of rent is going up everywhere. This can induce a feeling of anxiety.  The average rent is about $1000 a month and in most cases, you have to make three times that before they even rent to you.

That means if you don’t make at least $3000 a month then you are homeless. If it keeps going at this rate you may end up making six figures a year and still be on the streets in a few more years.

All that being said, I can’t help but think about those poor Muppets on Sesame Street.  Although some of them have trash cans they can live in. Of course we all know that nothing is free and the rent on a trash can is pretty high considering Sesame Street is in New York.

Add to the fact that federal funding is being cut for Sesame Street, which just means that the Muppets will not be able to receive welfare benefits.  

This could be the making for a new movie called The Muppets at the homeless shelter. Can you see all those Muppets standing in the welfare line?

Whatever the end result ends up being, I am sure nothing will get in the way of Bert and Ernie’s undying love for each other as they are still celebrating their freedom to same-sex marry.  These two have been together nearly half a century and I am surprised that when you Google “longest same-sex couples” you don’t see any mention of the cute little Muppet couple as they are so popular.
