Big Bird weighs in on Romney debate shout-out

On Saturday’s show, "SNL" cast member Seth Meyers asked the Sesame Street resident how he found out about his debate mention.

“I got a million tweets,” he replied.

When Myers attempted to confirm that Big Bird was on Twitter, the children’s show star exclaimed, “No, I’m a bird. Tweeting is how we talk.”

Saying he didn't want to "ruffle any feathers," the never-aging fowl also neglected to make any political statements during his “SNL” cameo. He instead opted to tell a G-rated joke to Myers.

“You know who loves debates?” Big Bird asked before delivering the punchline, “De-fishes.”
