Doesnt' matter, ate cookie

That's not a cookie. That's a chocolate omelette with shells.  You also had leftover eggs.  you could have eaten those while the omelette baked.

so.. the flour was already measured....

As much as I like Cookie Monster... that was poorly done story wise.

And his "character" wasn't right... something was off.

Oh well... watch kids think that this is how you make cookies... put 3 whole eggs and two cups of chips together and just stick them in a bowl into an over and you have cookies instead of two over cooked eggs and two cups of melted chocolate chips.

errr.. 3 oven-cooked eggs.

To be fair, I knew some adults who would probably try and "cook" the same way.

True... some probably can't find how to open the eggs carton...

FFS people, it's Sesame Street, not a cooking show. Barring some criminally irresponsible parents, the primary audience is not going to have access to the stove.

/It was about delayed gratification and mnemonic devices, not cookies.

Sesame Street just took some kids from thinking cookies come from the magical cookie container sitting in the pantry that you can scream for and get it immediately to "you have use a recipe and counting and memory and you have to work for it before you get something gratifying" and you're pissed because you have a better recipe?

You realize the kids also think Cookie Monster is real, right?

Where the hell was Tom Bombadillo?
 
2013-12-09 05:18:25 PM

jackmalice: Where the hell was Tom Bombadillo?



He's not essential to the recipe, so he was cut to prevent the cooking time from going on too long.

No they don't. I never thought he was real.

On a LOTR note, am I the only one who finds it tediously boring? I read the Hobbit too, in seventh grade, and I farking hated it. And I like fantasy, I just don't like Tolkien.

That was awesome!  So what if the recipe wasn't an actual recipe - I have it on good authority Cookie Monster isn't actually a Stoor Hobbit from the Gladden Fields.  It was about teaching kids how important remembering things is.  I wish, though, that Gandalf had said "You shall not bake!"

Watch the Hungry Games, and the Spy Who Loved Cookies episodes.  They're great, too.

I think my favorite part of the whole article was "You guessed it... Frank Stallone."

/ Yeah, I was there for the Norm MacDonald jokes on SNL back in the day.

The only Sesame Street thing I'm going to watch for the rest of my life is Tom Hiddleston explaining delayed gratification to the Cookie Monster.

Over, and over, and over, and over,,,

It is one of those works that is well loved because of what it created. The only good thing about the books was the world itself. So much extra stuff was thrown in that gave it a life of its own.

The series needs a good edit.

The younger kids do.  If you actually remember what you thought at the time, then you're probably remembering from a much older age.

I liked parts of LOTR but hated most of it.  It was only boring for me because I didn't understand WTF was going on.  So they met this guy Strider, then who the fark is this Aragorn guy and who's Arathorn?  Wait, were we talking about Sauron or Solomon?  Then there was trying to keep locations straight.  Then in the third book of the trilogy the ring gets destroyed so their mission is accomplished and then I think there was like 300 pages left.  WTF?

Cool, try reading the source material. I'll give you a decade or two to get back to me.

I know there were tons of mistakes in it, many editing, over the years. And some people still think the Bible is perfect, but that's not my point. If you want a good fantasy world, try Terry Brooks.
