It's too bad I didn't find this picture until just today. It would have made a nice thing to send around a few weeks ago when it was actually pi day.
Cripes...what the fuck is up with this?
'Me eat less cookies,' says Cookie Monster
Sesame Street character gets healthy, learns to control cravings
NEW YORK - Something must be wrong in the land of Muppets. First PBS announced that “Sesame Street” would kick off its 35th season this week with a multiyear story arc about healthy habits. No problem there; childhood obesity rates are soaring. Then I learned of changes that turned my “Sesame Street” world upside-down.
My beloved blue, furry monster — who sang “C is for cookie, that’s good enough for me” — is now advocating eating healthy. There’s even a new song — “A Cookie Is a Sometimes Food,” where Cookie Monster learns there are “anytime” foods and “sometimes” foods.
Truglio said “Sesame Street” also will introduce new characters, such as talking eggplants and carrots, and offer parodies, such as “American Fruit Stand.” Even guest stars will address healthy activities, such as Alicia Keys talking and singing about the importance of physical activity.
Even politicians have gotten into the act, filming public service announcements with “Sesame Street” residents. In one taping, Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist taught Elmo to exercise — jumping up and down. In another, Sen. Hillary Clinton and the small red monster discuss the various textures and tastes of foods.
Man, are these fucking people never satisfied unless they ruin everything? WTF? I'm waiting for the first dickhead to see this story and come to the conclusion that the old cookie monster is the reason they're addicted to baked goods and file a lawsuit.
Rot in hell Veggie Monster.
