Yeah what is up with that?

I saw that on NBC or something. How can he still call himself the Cookie Monster if he don't gobble down cookies all the time.

Pffft... what a quiter!

Yeah well I also agree that it's sad that America is too fat to be able to have its fictional characters eat cookies, but this might not be a bad thing.

I am a loud and proud supporter of the ridiculousness we've gotten to with being overweight. Partially hydrogenated this and high fructose that, it's all a bit sickening. I think that overweight people should be treated on an equal level as smokers are, forced to eat outside or tucked away out of sight in corners. I know, I know, that's extremely harsh but really, we're paying for overweight America in the same way that non-smoking America is paying for us, for our healthcare needs, so what's the difference? Either punish no one or punish everyone.

Also, if you can sue RJR or Philip Morris, you should be able to sue the hell out of Little Debby and her host of transfatty minions, but no one does this... I just don't understand why.

No obesity in any bar in New York City. I mean, they already do it in CA.

And look, I don't really have a problem with overweight people just like I don't see why anyone should have a problem with me smoking, I'm just trying to prove a point here. Why here, you ask? I don't know, cause I'm not allowed to smoke at the bar...

But back to your original comment, I vote they change it to "C is for Smoker"

i saw that on cnn this morning, and i totally laughed. the best part is, they have cookie monster rapping now, instead of singing - this ridiculous rap about how crunching carrots is fun. aaand, another piece of childhood nostalgia goes pffft.

but honestly, what a retarded idea, and it's not going to have any impact whatsoever. maybe if every other commercial during cartoon shows wasn't for foods containing sugar, fat, and preservatives as the primary ingredients... or maybe if parents turned off the goddamn tv once in a while, kids wouldn't be so fat. but they ought to leave cookie monster alone, dammit.

also keep in mind there are no commercials on Sesame Street. and the things that look kind of like commercials at the end where they say "This program was funded by" and then it's LEGO or Fruit Loops or something, well, they never actually show anyone playing with Legos or eating Fruit Loops.

That's the benefit of public television. No commercials and even the things that are like commercials aren't pushing a product at you, they're just saying "Hey, we support this show."
