Three times is a pattern

You might recall my post “In which my wife destroyed my childhood– and you can too!,” wherein I discovered that the Sesame Street characters on a blanket that my grandmother had made for me and which I had owned since I was a toddler were all reading books that referenced sex or erotica.  Yes, that happened.  Go ahead, click the link.

I would just like to point out that my son and I were watching a newish Sesame Street episode this morning, and I damn near did a spit-take of my coffee during the opening bit, which featured Bert reading a book called… Fifty Shades of Oatmeal.

This shit is not an accident.  🙂

  1. You cracked me up. As to the world and children’s programming, I can’t explain it. Reality isn’t half as weird as what we subject our children to. Raised on a diet of fifty shades of oatmeal, no wonder adulthood seems so boring.


  2. Fifty! Fifty shades of oatmeal! Ah AH ah AH!

    Sorry. Just pretend The Count was here and not me.
