Cookie Monster goes insane
When I was a kid, Cookie Monster was one of the characters in my life who I totally related with. Ernie, Cookie Monster, Oscar the Grouch, and later Aquaman and The Man From Atlantis.
So when I saw the story on CNN.com today about the Cookie Monster moving away from his radical “eat all cookies now” policy, it really hurt. He isn’t running for office, he doesn’t have to appeal to his base, why is he moving from his extremist position?
Okay, actually I’m just being silly. I’m looking forward to the new Sesame Street skits with Mr. Carrot and Mrs. Orange, and how when their juices mingle they create something beautiful.
But if they bring in Tofu Tommy and Timmy Tempeh, it may just be a little over the line.
