Oh, those wacky folks at Avenue Q have done it again. Those brilliant marketers are throwing their own debate Sept. 30 at 1 PM in Times Square's Duffy Square on 46th Street and Broadway, featuring singing candidates, free popcorn, cotton candy, balloons, and more.

We love the warning being used: "Please Note - Any similarity between puppets and actual Presidential candidates is purely coincidental." Not-so-coincidentally, Bush and Kerry have their first debate later that evening. Gothamist is betting on the afternoon event to the be the more intelligent of the two.

And by the way, if you still haven't seen Avenue Q, what are you waiting for? We'd be hard pressed to name another current Broadway show we have enjoyed as much.
