    Over 40 years and that damn bird hasn`t hatched even one egg. (just kidding)

    But seriously, do you know how much it costs to get feathers for that damn suit?

    4000+ feathers in the suit x $1.50 per feather = $6,000 for the whole suit (not counting labor) and they have to be changed regularly. I seen a `behind the scenes at CTW` documentary and they budget over $40,000 a year just for Big Birds feathers.

    Big Bird is a commie.

    If "preaching charity" is enough to be called a commie then the Salvation Army is one of the most notorious Socialist cabals (second to all communist nations of course) to ever have existed.
    EVEN THEIR LOGO IS RED!

    Seriously I`m all for ending the subsidy to PBS and reforming the two biggest items in our budget(I`d prefer they be cut though). But you conservatives have GOT to stop these aimless commie insinuations.

    CrakrJak:

    That doesn`t sound unusual to me considering Leo DiCaprio netted $77 Million in 2010.

    $1.50 for a dyed turkey feather? I don`t think so...
    Here`s a dozen for $2.50

    and you KNOW they buy in large enough bulk to bring it waaaaay down from there.

    chalket: Ordinary turkey feathers aren`t very expensive, true. But Big Bird`s feathers come from 45lb. male turkeys. Turkeys that large are rare, because almost all turkeys are sent to the slaughterhouse before they reach that size.

    That is why Big Bird`s feathers are $1.50 each, they aren`t the smaller turkey feathers, they are much bigger and rarer.
