Work is underway for the Obama Presidential Center Museum in Chicago, intended to open sometime in the future. Of course, it will have important items from the life and administration of Barack Obama, like official memos, campaign items, and maybe even Bo the Dog stuffed and mounted on the wall. Oh…now I just made myself sad. But clearly, the most important item they’ve announced in the collection will be…Muppet food!
That’s right! A basket of authentic Sesame Street vegetables will be a part of the museum, the very same produce handled by First Lady Michelle Obama in her 2009 appearance on the show. You can throw a rock and hit a Kermit in some exhibit out there, but finally, the unsung heroes of the Muppet family are finally getting their due. And in a Presidential capacity no less! What a country!
