Big Bird has suddenly become small and everyone online is concerned

There is an ongoing national nightmare and few people talk about it. Big Bird is now small. Tiny, even. I repeat: Big Bird is small. The horror.

How did it start? We don’t know entirely. But Big Bird, seemingly out of nowhere, posted on X (formerly Twitter) that he was small – as if he had woken up like that one day. Suddenly, his 8’2″ figure shrunk to the size of an insect. And we’re just supposed to continue living our lives? In this changed world?

This was the original message, from Wednesday.

From there, Big Bird’s account repeatedly posted about how small he was. And being stuck in his new tiny size.

Big Bird seemed to be struggling with his very identity. Frankly, the messages look like a cosmic horror.

Has his new size made him invisible to those close to him? Has our beloved giant bird been condemned to a life haunting what once was?

Your cries will fall on deaf ears, bird. There will be no more games.

OK, so clearly this is some sort of marketing stunt. For what purpose is unclear. But it worked. The internet joked about Big Bird shrinking.

This article, for example, allayed some people’s concerns.

Others joked about their stress.

I don’t know if this makes me a bad person but this joke made me laugh a lot.

This one too.

And all that.

As of this writing, this dire situation has not been corrected. Big Bird remains small, as far as we know. The horror continues unabated. But maybe he’ll return to his full size soon and all will be right in the world.
