Wrong on so many levels

The uber-talented woman behind House in Progress sent me this screen shot from the Sesame Street website that made me shoot milk out of my nose. 


And I wasn’t even drinking milk.

Also, for those of you scratching your head and wondering what’s so funny (and who I suspect are the same sheltered people who didn’t get why I thought the Scooby-Doo “funbags” were so hysterical) the definition of “tossing salad” is here.  Prepare yourself.

  1. Great, now I have to wonder what other things Sesame Street put into my head without my mother being as watchful as you.

    Or it explains why I can’t stay away from cookies. I don’t even want to try to psychoanalyze the connection between that and what you just showed us on that site.

    Time to go shower and scrub until those thoughts go away. 🙂

  2. I had nothing in my mouth so I think I just snorted brain.

  3. and people said I was a bad mom ’cause I didn’t let my kids watch S.S….lol.

  4. You think that’s funny? Everytime the Teletubbies bring out Po’s little scooter, they all cheer, “PO’S COOTER!”

  5. That is horrifying! Why is it that the writers of kids’ shows are so perverted? Disney movie writers are always sneaking in tiny, subtle sex references too.

  6. Oh, that’s dirrrrrrty.

  7. Jenny, that is totally disturbing. Thanks for sharing it!!! 🙂

  8. I always knew Cookie Monster was a bit on the kinky side. It think it was all that blue fur and insatiable appetite.

  9. Calling the language police — definition counterfeiters on the lose.

  10. he does this trick with the chocolate chips that will send you into… oh, i typed this out loud didn’t i?

  11. Showering with bleach now.

  12. Holy SHIT!

  13. Oh now, that is just too friggin’ hilarious! I always knew that monster would eat anything….

  14. Mmmm, a little blue fuzz flavor with your alphabet?

    G is for g-spot kiddies, and don’t you forget it!

  15. LOVE it!! That’s so stinking funny, yet horrible at the same time.

  16. I was one of the losers scratching her head until checking out the link….I’ll never be able to look at the Cookie Monster the same way again!


    Thanks, Jenny!

  18. So CM likes to work both sides. Nice.

  19. the Urban Dictionary should just be BANNED! They’ve ruined everything nice every coming out of my mouth. I was blissfully happy whenever I tossed my salad and now I can never do it again.

  20. I knew why you laughed the minute I read it and I’m relieved to know that there are others in the world who find that kind of thing hilarious. The screen shot definitely made me laugh out loud!

    Thanks for sharing!

  21. I LOVE the look on Cookie’s face. He definitely looks likes he’s in middle of having his salad tossed.

  22. (Picking blue fuzz out of my mouth). Ok, now what?

  23. Remember when the old sesame street videos came out and they said they were not appropriate for kids?

  24. bwaaaaaaaaahahahahahahahahahahahaha

    and sadly, i knew just what it meant…

  25. Guess it’s a good thing I’ve already eaten.

  26. Your title says it all. Remind me not to bring up nursery rhymes with you. 😉

    Using My Words

  27. I have an incredibly tacky and rude comment to make. But I won’t.

    Damn, this is hard to be nice.

    Seriously – that is about the funniest thing EVER.

    And how did you know what that meant?

  28. Reminds me of the time a good (but clueless) friend of mine was helping me move. In front of all of my other buddies, and while I was bent over in front of him and packing a crate, he asks, “Hey Kev, do you want me to pack your groceries?”

  29. Seriously, I love you guys.

    And I have to admit that “packing your groceries” was actually a new one to me. I’m tempted to look it up but it’s refreshing to be the naive one for once.

  30. Wait…what did it mean when Burt asked Ernie if he needed a tea bag???

  31. Yay! I’m so glad you could post this! My husband and I fell over when we saw it for the first time on SesameWorkshop.org. Our two year old was oblivious and couldn’t understand why her parents were rolling on the floor laughing. 🙂

    And I was so bummed when I realized that, if I posted it on my blog, my husband’s grandmother would have a stroke.

    I knew you’d understand me, Jenny. Must have drinks at next BlogHer.

  32. I just love all the little Muppet eyeballs peeking up from along the bottom of the screen.

    Don’t they look a little scared? mk

  33. omg i will never ever be able to look at a restaurant menu again…


  34. even saying “prepare yourself” didn’t help. OMG. need to go scrub myself now and eliminate all cookie monster items from the house.

  35. Ha! Okay, that one I did not know. GReat, new vocab I shouldn’t know… Merry Christmas to me!

  36. good god! and all these years people were saying that Bert and Ernie were the evil muppets.

  37. “Tossing the Salad” is an outlawed term in our household, along with “the shocker” and “turd-burgular”.

  38. Awe Damn. I thought it was funny because everybody knows Cookie Monster doesn’t eat salad, he eats cookies. Duh. Then I read “your” defination….how do you know this shit?

  39. P*rn. Lots and lots of p*rn.

  40. Dude. My stomach hurts now. You need warnings on these things.

    I’m so sending this link to everyone I know.

  41. Kids TV can be so confusing. You always have to be on the lookout for double-entendres.

    Oh I was not at all prepared for that link. Warning or not.
    How can I explain my laughter now when my in-laws ask me to toss their salad?

  43. Explains the reaction when I tell my BF to “Come toss this salad for me”
    Here I thought he was being spontaneous and adventurous.
    At least he follows directions.
