Occupy 'Sesame Street': Grover arrested, Count pepper-sprayed

OccupySesameSt2.jpgWe never thought we'd see the day when loveable Muppet Grover would be cuffed by New York's finest. And we still haven't, but thanks to some handy PhotoShop work from Tauntr.com, images of "Sesame Street" Muppets joining in the Occupy Wall Street protests -- and getting nabbed by cops -- now exist.

Apparently, the whole thing began when someone tweeted the hashtag #OccupySesameStreet. Mother Jones posted a great timeline of how the tag took off and inspired our favorite new Internet meme.

Tauntr.com took things to the next level when they posted several photos -- including a cuffed Grover and a Count whose eyes are tearing up after getting pepper-sprayed. Even Bert, who was recently the subject of his own controversy, is in on the action.

Now if only we could get Sad Keanu involved.
