It's enough to make you lose your cookies

Sesame Street has decided that Cookie monster is gay... well, no they haven't. It's even more bizarre than that. Rather Cookie Monster has repented and is no longer a glutton for cookies. Instead, in an effort to combat over-eating, Cookie Monster has been transformed into just a blue puppet that likes cookies. His trademark song has change from "C is for cookie" to "Cookies are a sometime food"!!! Can you believe it? I mean, they've totally gutted his personality! Taken away his raison d'etre!!

Let's be rational here... do we really think that children overeat simply because of Cookie Monster's obsession? Or that they will suddenly no longer desire them because of this change? My kids used to laugh at Cookie Monster, seeing him as a caricature. They never took him seriously, or sought to emulate his behaviour. I suspect that this act only shows the poverty of adult thinking, rather than the gullibility of children.

And in case you think this is a hoax, check it here.

I'm devastated!

When I began reading your poast I thought you meant Cookie monster was gay - kinda a pink furry version of tthe same -- but this is aweful...

What next - The Count eschewing vampirism and becoming ..... an accountant??

Or Gonzo and his chicken dalliances!
