    If SW is so concerned about obesity, then why are they airing commericials for McDonald's at the beginning of each show?

    That's A Very Good Question! Anyone Else Know About This?

    Because I Love McDonald's But I Eat It Every Now And Then!

    It was only a matter of time before political correctness took its toll on SS's most outrageous muppet.

    In related news, Sesame Street is also concerned about the adverse effects of poor grammar and lack of self-control, especially with regard to overeating.

    Hence, Cookie Monster will be renamed "Carrot Monster". All scenes featuring Carrot Monster that involve eating will consist of a balanced, low-carb diet that is consumed slowly and deliberately, in small portions, and with no crumbs falling out of the monster's mouth and littering the floor, polluting the environment.

    Also, Carrot Monster will no longer refer to himself in the third person or with objective and subjective pronouns switched. He will also practice subject-verb agreement. Hence, while the old Cookie Monster used to say "Me want to eat cookies" or "Monster want to eat cookies", the new Carrot Monster will instead say, "I would like to eat some vegetables."

    Ah, and then we can expect to see 'Fatkins'! A Muppet who tries a certain diet (*wink) and fails miserably....

    Or an episode where Gordon munches on only Subway sandwiches for a week and the cast does its very first intervention!

    "Gordon, you smell reek of onion!" says Susan.
    "I love it!" smiles Oscar.
