Cookie Monster has seen the light


It seems that Cookie Monster, our old friend from Sesame Street, has had a change of heart. In an appearance on Stephen Colbert’s television program recently, Cookie quoted the Bible, sort of, adapting Deuteronomy 8:3 to “Man cannot live on cookies alone.” According to Christianity Today magazine, he told Stephen, “Me now know that cookie is sometimes food. . .Me have crazy times in the ’70s and ’80s. Me like the Robert Downey, Jr. of cookies.”

In other show-biz news, Mr. Snuffleupagus is reported to be suffering from elephantiasis. . .

I suppose this is meant to encourage healthy eating in kids.

I have to admit, the Robert Downey line is pretty funny.
