The seemingly endless flow of Christmas Carols and other seasonal songs to make an important announcement.
(PLAZA SESAME ES DE 40 ANOS!)
(SESAME ST. EST DE 40 ANS!)
(SESAMESTRASSE IST 40 JAHRE ALT!)
Now, this is very important to me for a couple of reasons.
First: My Sissies were raised by Mr. Hooper, Big Bird, Elmo and Cookie Monster. And I think they did a great job! Oh, my parents were around, ya know. But Sesame Street gets most of the credit.
Second: When my dad reads to me and teka he likes to read the old Sesame Street books that the sissies had. The man does a GREAT Big Bird voice, and is passing fair on Elmo and Cookie. Me and Teka roll around laughing and chortling. Muzzer does the Grouchy voice.
So, thank you Sesame Street for many things. Have a marvelous anniversary. Muzzer says she hopes that by the time you turn 50, she has a grandbaby to share you with. Truly, she hopes that when she is old and senile, someone turns on your show to make her smile.
This announcement is brought to you by the letter E and the number 40!
And to honor the guy in the sweater, who introduced my sissies to Opera! (no, not OPRAH!)
