Big Bird Costumes Selling Big

Mitt Romney is definitely doing his part to boost the economy. Following Mitt Romney’s debate comments, interest in Big Bird costumes has skyrocketed. Costumecraze.com said that there has been a 500 percent increase in sales for the “Sassy Big Bird Adult Costume” since the debate. Halloween Express has had hundreds of searches for Big Bird costumes since the debate, and a spokesman for Costume World said that all of their stores are selling out of Big Bird costumes—and doing especially well is the costume pair featuring Big Bird and Romney “with a machine gun doing Big Bird in.” But Big Bird is alone out there–the “Sassy Cookie Monster” and “Sassy Elmo” costumes have seen no increase in sales.
