A Bit of Weekend Fluff

Cookie Monster did a tell-all interview on the Colbert report re: his abandonment of the cookie agenda in favor of moderation.  This is hilarious and I encourage you all to check it out.

I must confess that I share Colbert’s dismay with Cookie Monster’s flip-flopping on this issue.  Cookies are a sometimes food?  Are you kidding?  He is Cookie Monster!  He is not a role model for moderation and healthy living, he is a satire of single-minded excess.  This is comedy people!  Even toddlers understand that when Cookie Monster stuffs himself with everything that even looks like a cookie, he is being silly.  We the audience are supposed to laugh and say, “Silly Cookie Monster!  Cookies are a sometimes food!”  But we only get to that point because Cookie Monster has so abley demonstrated that eating cookies all the time is neither desirable nor realistic.



  1. HAHA!! Cute interview 😀 Yes, I agree – people should not blame Cookie Monster for kids being addicted to junk food and whatnot. It’s the parents’ fault!
