I know I am a couple years late but this “Cookie Monster” fiasco has been bothering me for a couple years now. For starters, who forced him to give up eating cookies every day? I am sure Cookie Monster is an American and it is his inalienable right as an American to eat as many cookies as he wants to. If he wants to be on life support, then let him make his own decision.
I know I sound like Ron Swanson from “Parks and Recreation” right now, but I don’t think “Sesame Street” had a valid reason for making Cookie Monster into a health conscious hipster who only eats organic veggies from Wholefoods versus chocolate chip cookies. I get that children are heavily impressionable by what they watch on TV but it is up to the parent to raise their kids better,versus blame “Sesame Street” for making little Johnny 20 pounds heavier. Just turn off the TV and stop blaming Cookie Monster!
Ever since 2006, Cookie Monster, whose real name is Sid, eschewed most cookies out of his dietary habits and has claimed veggies, fruits and maybe even granola into his eating habits. I feel like kids growing up in this era will miss out on the life and the true love of Cookie Monster. And for this reason, I truly pity them.
Moreover, Cookie Monster cannot shout,”Me want cookie! Me want cookie!” any time he wants to. The executives at “Sesame Street” probably have his mom, sister and the rest of his family members on lockup somewhere. I bet they are torturing them with “TellyTubby” reruns or, worse, making them play “SlenderMan” in the dark 24/7.
Just the thought of Cookie Monster “Om nom nomming” veggies and fruits makes me sick to my stomach. If you want him to be a foodie hipster than name him Veggie Monster! Just the thought of Cookie Monster’s googly eyes making a beeline for a carrot makes me feel so confounded. Why did Cookie Monster nix his Pro-Cookie Agenda? I have way too many questions, but not enough answers!
I hope Cookie Monster stands up for his rights in 2013. If he can’t eat a cookie maybe he should nibble on Kermit the Frog. Some restaurants in the D. C area serve frogs legs, maybe Cookie Monster can try to make that for himself.
