Say it isn’t so, Cookie Monster!
The concerned parents of the world (not me, per se) have forced everyone’s favorite non-Grover blue Muppet, Cookie Monster, to recant his oath of cookie-eating.
Seems he’s more an omnivore now:
Cookie Monster: Me like fruit.
Matt Lauer: And there you have it. Cookie Monster likes fruit, and not cookies.
Cookie Monster: No! You members of the media blow story way out of proportion! Me still like cookies!
Matt Lauer: Then why fruit?
Cookie Monster: Why not fruit? It delicious! And healthy. Me still eat cookies, like me world-famous for doing, but now me eat other things too.
Matt Lauer: So what you’e saying is, if I were to offer you this cookie, you would eat it right now?
Cookie Monster: No. Me eat fruit salad — and then me eat cookie for dessert!
Matt Lauer: Well, you heard it here first! Cookie Monster has not given up cookies. From the looks of it, he eats just about everything.
Cookie Monster: You got dat right.
So, instead of being a ravenously hungry “monster” we now have an overeating machine who knows no gastronomical bounds, save for “fruits first, dessert second.”
Yeah, that seems better.
