Is nothing sacred anymore? Now the food Nazis are going after a childhood icon: Cookie Monster has apparently received a directive from his Sesame Street bosses to quit downing his favorite food because his behavior could be contributing to the child obesity pickle we're supposedly in. Now future episodes of Sesame Street will purportedly show Cookie Monster modifying his intake of chocolate chips while singing the praises of cantaloupe. His new song is going to be, "A cookie is a sometimes food." Why can’t they just leave things alone? Kids were downing cookies long before Cookie Monster came along, and they’ll be downing cookies long after he’s gone. Let the kids be kids, just for a little while.
