Losing His Cookies

So Cookie Monster is being forced to cut back on his cookies. Children's Television Workshop is apparently worried about the message that having a monster getting orgasmic over cookies sends to its young viewers. However, as any armchair psychoanalyst could tell you, CM is clearly suffering from an obsessive personality. With cookies no longer allowed to be a focus for this ingrained behavior, we here at There Is No Cat would like to offer the following suggestions for alternative behaviors where this tendency might be allowed to come to the fore:

Yeah, I can see it now. It starts with shoplifting from Mr. Hooper's store and extorting Elmo's lunch money. As a teenager, he runs numbers for the mob and steals car stereos, bouncing in and out of reform homes. Unlike the students who didn't drop out, his graduation is to knocking over liquor stores. One proprietor, not so keen on being robbed for the 16th time this year, pulls out a shotgun, and takes CM out. Nobody attends his funeral.

What do you mean there is no cat?

"You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat."

- Albert Einstein, explaining radio
