Makin' Memes Out of Lemons

Alright, so Obama was not so great in the presidential debate on Wednesday. But thanks to Romney's Big Bird comment, at least the internet community has something to make memes about. I'm not saying that Big Bird should become the face of the Obama campaign, I think that's pretty silly, but when the going gets tough, it's important to find humor somewhere.

The best one, in my opinion:

And just so you know, cutting government funding to PBS would neither save the economy nor put Big Bird out of work.

"In its own statement, issued after the debate, PBS said, “The federal investment in public broadcasting equals about one one-hundredth of one percent of the federal budget. Elimination of funding would have virtually no impact on the nation’s debt.”
Or, as astrophysicist and PBS “Nova ScienceNOW” host Neil de Grasse Tyson put it, more pithily, on Twitter, “Cutting PBS support (0.012% of budget) to help balance the Federal budget is like deleting text files to make room on your 500Gig hard drive.” — The Washington Post"
