On a Very Special Episode of Sesame Street…

Cookie Monster must face an intervention for his obsessive cookie eating. After being told that “everyone here on Sesame Street loves you like crazy and just wants you to get better,” Cookie agrees to go to a 30-day in-patient treatment center in Palm Springs, CA. Four days after completing treatment, he relapses on a box on Nilla Wafers.

Thanks to Cialis, Mr. Noodle finally gets al dente.

Ernie and Bert realize their lifelong dream of adopting twin Chinese baby girls. They name them Esther and Babs. Although the children are not biological, Esther loves baths and Babs loves pigeons.

Dorothy finally gets out of Elmo’s shadow when she leaves Sesame Street to star in her own VH1 reality show, “Fishbowl of Love.”

What’s the Word on the Street? Clit.

Oscar the Grouch finds a bootleg prescription for Wellbutrin, moves out of his trash can into a phat new dumpster and gets a job working for the DMV.

After listening to Elmo refer to himself in the third person for almost three decades, Snuffleupagus hands him a long overdue trunk whipping.

The letter Q suffers a massive stroke, after a long period of rehabilitation, he returns to the alphabet determined to teach children about the dangers of high cholesterol.

Gordon is falsely accused of sexual harassment by a greedy, litigious puppet. He hires Gloria Allred to represent him. Eventually he is cleared of the charges but is forever followed by a dark cloud of doubt.

In the tear jerking show ender, Big Bird unwittingly brings in an anti-viral resistant strain of Avian flu creating a fatal pandemic throughout Sesame Street.

    For some reason, the one about Gordon doesn't sound that far-fetched.

    So, cookies are a "sometimes" food, for Cookie Monster now. Wasabi is a "sometimes" food too. Especially when you think it's avocado.

    You've committed Sesame Street sacrilege. Do you realize that? Sacrilege! I may never be able to forgive you. Sniff.

    You are one hilarious chick! My kid is asking me what I am laughing at so hard at 6:30 in the morning while watching some fucked up episode of some stupid shit called "OOBIE" on Noggin. WTF? Does anyone have any brains to come up with anything educational anymore? It a fucking hand with two eyeballs glued to it. I should come up with some stupid crap and make it big. I could use the extra cash! And I was going to ask you about writing a book.

    I love the Mr. Noodle comment! What an awesome post.

    Shannon, I am with you on that weird-ass Oobi. Gives me the heebie-jeebies. Who the fuck thought that thing up?

    LOL, tjhat was better than Avenue Q!!! (but a little less dirty) …


    What's wrong with Cookie monster liking Cookie, no wonder our kids are confused…seriously.

  18. Wicked Step Mom said,

    I was all ticked off before I came by. And then you made iced tea come out of my nose. And now I am grumpy because Iced Tea shouldn't burn so much. But I forgot why I was originally ticked off, so thanks!

    Hilarious, but the idea of Mr. Noodle on Cialis gives me a case of the screaming meemies.

    Yes to all but Mr. Noodle! He and his dirty brother get arrested for pedophilia for sure. Or at least goes on What Not to Wear and loses the 'stache.

  21. Andrea (ace1028) said,

    OMG. Hilarious, seriously. I'm dying here.

    And I SO agree about Oobie. What on earth? I saw that thing in the middle of the night and it scared the sh!t out of me!

  22. wendi said,

    Oh, you are funny. But I think you need to get out of the house.

    | August 6, 2009 @ 5:56 pm

  23. Rebecca said,

    That was some seriously funny stuff! Thanks! I really can't decide which I like best. Mr Noodle, perhaps?

    Ooby is strange but Boo-Bah really takes the cake for me. That show is about crack heads, for crack heads, made by crack heads! Boo-Bah makes me want to swallow a bullet.

    What about The Count? Ah. ah. ahhhh.

  25. Kendra said,

    Wow, that's more thought than I have ever given to Sesame Street! I am jealous and impressed.

    And yes, Oobi is awful. My 3-year-old adores it and always wants to talk to "Ooba," which is just my hand. I am okay with the "bare hand puppet" and with the supposed lessons. But I cannot stand the assumption that my kid can't understand sentences with verbs in them! "Oobi evil. You say… Oobi evil."

    When I had Mr. Noodle, he had no problems. Of course, that was over 5 years ago. So, obvs, you're not doing it right.

    Just found you on Twitter. Awesome site. I need to go buy your book. The funny part… how many of us knew every single character your post described… well, with the exception of Esther and Babs, who, of course, were new to the street!

    Glad to have discovered your blog today!

    But you need to tell us what REALLY happened with those yip yip monsters and the twiddle bugs.

  44. Rebecca said,

    I came back to say that while the comment about Mr. Noodle and Cialias was hilarious, I really doubt Mr. Noodle would know what to do with an erection. I'm thinking it would frighten him.

    Hysterical and awesome. The "trunk whipping" had me in stitches!

    love love love.
    and the thing with Gordon was bound to happen after awhile–you keep inviting kids over to your home for a snack and eventually you're gonna get slapped with a lawsuit.

    How did you get Children's Television Workshop to send you the final Sesame Street script? Damn, you're connected.

  52. The Mother Tongue said,

    After two years of having to listen to that obnoxious little red monster, I would pay good money to see Snuffy deal out that trunk-whipping.

    (although, let's be fair, my greatest loathing is reserved for that epic whiner Caillou)

  53. Kristine said,

    Yeah, yeah, I'm just behind on my blog reader.

    But holy crap that was funny! And I've been watching a lot of Sesame Street the last couple months with the littlest.

    Gotta love the word on the street!
