Unbelievable. The Cookie Monster, of former cookie jar-devouring heroics, has now learnt that"cookies are a sometimes food" and has broadened his eating habits to include fruit and vegetables.
I don't know where to begin to comment on this. Civilization is at an end. What comes next--"Oscar the Serotonin Disadvantaged"?
Some of the comments on this blog are rather amusing in their outrage about the matter. One 14 year-old girl writes:
"I think cookie monster should stick with cookies cause without cookies there is no cookie monster and that is just retarded!!!"
She may have a point. Another girl gets really worked up and leans on the caps lock key. During her tirade, she points out that:
"...(I am very skinny ONLY BECAUSE MY MOM FED ME THE RIGHT WAY!!!) COOKIE MONSTER DIDN'T INFLUENCE ME AT ALL!!!"
Classic. Later, she arrives at the obvious solution. Threaten legal action:
"IF THIS IS TAKEN ANY FARTHER SO HELP ME I WILL SUE MY FAVORITE CHILDHOOD SHOW JUST BECAUSE YOU RUINED MY FAVORITE CHARACTER... I AM HURT AND TRAMATIZED FOR LIFE!!! ...IF ANYMORE CHANGES HAPPEN I AM GOING TO PUT THIS SHOW OUT OF BUISNESS!! SO YOU BETTER CHANGE COOKIE MONSTER BACK TO HIS OLD SELF OR I WILL SUE. AND I AM TOTALLY SERIOUS ON THIS SUBJECT."
I guess Sesame Street will see her in court.
