Sign of the Times

Cookie Monster has started eating healthy. To tackle Americas fat ass kid problem (A.F.A.K.P) Sesame Street now has Cookie Monster eating fruits and vegetables. And he even sings a new song called "Cookies are a sometimes food." It was only a matter of time. Cookie Monster is the most politically incorrect kids character ever. He eats nothing but cookies. He has horrible manners. He doesn't share. He destroys other people's property. His grammar is horrible. And he doesn't care for Jews. Ok I made one of those up. If they change his hit song to "C is for Carrot," I'll be really sad. Cookie Monster on a diet. What's next? Ritalin for Elmo? Zoloft for Oscar the Grouch? So what if Cookie Monster has a bit of a weight problem. What about the Count's Obsessive Compulsive Disorder? What about Snuffaluffagus's Erectile Dysfunction? If Sesame Street really wants to get progressive they'd let Bert and Ernie get that "Civil Union" they've always wanted.
