Your Monday Morning Mental Treat: What Cookie Monster Won’t Eat

An absolutely brilliant interview of Cookie Monster at NPR. You’ve come a long way from your humble beginnings, Cookie.

I’m assuming that is indeed David Rudman, current Cookie Monster, under the fur. And how much of his performance is improv I cannot say, but it’s brilliant nonetheless. Not unlike his Colbert appearance. And since Inside the Actor’s Studio was brought up in the vid, wouldn’t it be nice to see Muppet performers on there the same way they did the voices of The Simpsons?

Cookie Pride is Not Dead

If I had time to watch television (or indeed, if I still had cable–that might help too), I’d make time to watch both The Daily Show and The Colbert Report. Because everything I see from them is brilliant. But alas, I have no life. Never become a webmaster–that is my advice to you.

Regardless, Mark Evanier posted this from Colbert…and it’s positively sublime.

The 39 Stairs Starring Grover

Grover in 39 Steps

While I fully realize that Ectoplasmosis already brought up the whole Sisyphus angle of this particular Sesame Street piece and thus have already deflated any attempt I could make at tying this in to your work week…well, it’s just perfect. From Cookie Monster‘s head angle with pipe at the beginning, to the ending “Hurry.” Just perfect.

Bonus for you after the break.

Me OK Guy Who Eat Cookies.

Doc originally posted this on the Gabfest, but it’s far too mind-destroying not to share with everybody. It’s a moment of self reflection by Cookie Monster:

But since when it acceptable to call addict monster? It affliction. It disease. It burden. But does it make me monster? How can they be so callous? Me know there something wrong with me, but who in Sesame Street doesn’t suffer from mental disease or psychological disorder?

Read the whole bit at McSweeney’s.
