A Cold Splash of Water

There are some things that have really been bugging me recently.

Kole has diapers with the Cookie Monster surrounded by floating apples and bananas. Why is there fruit all around him? Is he not the COOKIE Monster? I didn't think he was the Apple and Banana Monster. That's awkward and too long to say.   I thought Sesame Street had done a fantastic job for years building a reputation for our furry blue cookie craving friend.  He loves cookies.  I always loved how they crumbles everywhere as he ate them.  And that noise- "Nom nom nom nom nom."  Like he can't eat them fast enough.  And now all the sudden he's on diapers and he has to eat bananas and apples?  I'm sure he's not going "Nom nom" anymore.  C is for cookie.  Not apple.  Not banana.  Cookie.  And I say "shame on you" to the parents who can't let the Cookie Monster be himself because they have blamed him for their kids obesity. Newsflash- your children (if not plagued by a disease) are obese because you can't stand on your own two feet and say no to that bag of Cheetos.  Shame, shame, shame on you.

Why is internet supposed to be capitalized to be Internet? I didn't think it was a proper noun.

I hate it when washed up singers find their "new sound" with Country music.  You're polluting my airwaves Darius Rutker.. oh I mean Hootie!  Go back to soft rock.  Your country songs are pathetic.

I miss the days when a monster could eat a cookie without shame.

p.s. my word verification is stable...that's a REAL WORD!

Whaaaaaaa? You listen to COUNTRY MUSIC??? Whoa. Good old Hootie. I didn't like his soft rock songs very much, either, but I do like his teeth.

haha, Patty you always make me laugh. You make a good point about the diapers though! Andy and I were reading that in San Fran the city banned (because of a vote) McDonalds from putting a toy in their happy meal, because it targeted children and in turn causes childhood obesity. What the? Hello, the PARENTS are the ones buying them the happy meals.
