This article makes me sad.
Apparently, Sesame Street's Cookie Monster is going to learn about moderation in his eating habits. He's going to learn that cookies are a "sometimes food" not an "anytime food".
I understand the reasoning behind this, I really do. But I can't help but think that it's wrong.
The cookie monster is the cookie monster. Gorging himself on cookies is the very point of his being. They are taking away is very purpose. Let Elmo learn to be healthy, but for the love of the children, leave Cookie alone. Let him be what he is.
Let's all go eat cookies. Right now. Lots of them. Everyone, eat a protest cookie. Eat two. Eat fifty!!!
