Toys from the blackstuff: What next for Sesame Street's unemployed?
Perhaps a testament to the lack of zingers in the first US presidential debate between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney was the fact that the most memorable line of the evening was Romney announcing that, if elected, he'd cancel any government subsidies to America's public broadcaster PBS, home of Sesame Street (despite Romney's protestations that "I like Big Bird").
So if Romney does manage to win, what next for the residents of kids' TV's most famous avenue?
Big Bird – Stud at intensive chicken farm in Ohio
Eric and Ernie – Salesmen/branding consultants for vulcanised bath accessories
Oscar the Grouch – Fox News talking head
Count von Count – Chairman of the United States Federal Reserve
Mr Snuffleupagus – Pantomime Snuffleupagus (seasonal)
Cookie Monster – Anti-diabetes campaigner
Elmo – "Me Elmo! Me professor of linguistics at MIT!"
