Another innocent childhood icon ruined through overreaction...

You know, sometimes I understand why political correctness is so hated:

Cookie Monster Advocating Eating Healthy

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.

What's the infection in the soul of this nation that's making the Cookie Monster change his diet? Is an overeating Muppet that responsible for childhood obesity?

Look, monsters don't have diets. And if they do, they're not healthy, they're more often than not whatever victim happens to pass, and then you have to look at the victim's diet, don't you? Doesn't that make sense?

Why yes, I'm single, why do you ask?

Anyway, I guess we'll get to look forward to new songs by the Count ("Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder is Not A Joke"), Big Bird ("People Who Hallucinate Have Feelings Too"), and Oscar The Grouch ("Go Fuck Yourself, I Like Being Miserable").
