You Have GOT To be KIDDING Me!!

I read the article below, and just stared in utter disbelief.

This just in...Older episodes of Sesame Street have been deemed "unsuitable" for today's toddlers. Stupid but true.

Due to such horrendous factors as Cookie Monster consuming a steady diet of chocolate chip cookies and Oscar's moodiness going unchecked by prescription antidepressants, DVD compilations of the older episodes need their own warning label.

(GAG ME!!!!)

Seriously folks, we have politically corrected ourselves to death, and it is downright disgusting. Not that I was ever a tremendous fan of the show when I was a child, but the idea behind Sesame Street being unsuitable due to these factors and a few stupid others, is INSANE.

You can read the article in its entirety here:
