As I said in my very first post ever, "Sesame Street was way cooler when I was a kid.". Now they've gone to far. Cookie Monster will be preaching about healthy eating and singing a song about how cookies are only ok some of the time.
I don't mind if they want to teach healthy eating habits. That's a good thing but couldn't they have used a different spokes monster? Use Elmo he's already lame.
Come on people yeah it's supposed to be educational but can't some things just be fun? What's next Oscar the Neat Freak? I had another joke at Bert & Ernie's expense but then I'd be no better than the people I'm complaining about.
It's funny how much this pisses me off (I was going to say irritates me but that's not accurate). It's like they traveled back in time to my child hood and walked up to my four year old self and punched me in the gut.
Not letting Cookie Monster preach the gospel of cookies is censorship. It's cookie discrimination. It's super duper lame.
Here is the link to the article that got me started but I bet you can find others if your interested.
And here is the way I will always remember Cookie Monster.
I like to watch Sesame Street on the Spanish channels. I don't understand what they're saying so it doesn't make me mad, Plaza Sesemo is fun to say, and Big Bird has a cool punk rock hairdo.
