I watch Sesame Street as much as the next mom. Actually, that is a complete lie. I watch Sesame Street all hours of the day as we have it stockpiled on our DVR. I even keep watching it after my kids have wandered outside to play on the porch because the parodies and the puns and the celebrity guest appearances are freakishly addicting.
I am a Sesame Street fan fo life. Since we are the parents who control the universe of our two-year-old, we hardly ever allow him to watch any other television, completely related to our unnatural Sesame Street bias. I would rather watch idiotic puppets dancing about than some stupid cartoon featuring Martin Short’s grating voice (Cat in the Hat, I’m looking at you).
So, basically, I pretend like my two-year-old is obsessed with Sesame Street and Elmo, when it is really all my doing. Granted, he does like Elmo. There was a brief period of time when he was calling my husband and me “Elmomamadada.” The Holy Trinity, the people he loves most, the only beings that matter in the world.
All I gotta say is, Fuck yeah, Sesame Street. Apparently, I’m not the only person who feels this way. There are plenty of funny adult-friendly Sesame Street memes that will get you in the puppety spirit:
1. Et Tu, Big Bird, Et Tu.
6. Shit Just Got Real On Sesame Street.
11. I’m Hungry—YOLO.
