Koekie-monster neem 'Hunger Games' aan, sing oor Cookie-Copia


'The Avengers', 'Doctor Who' en 'The Newsroom' kry ook die musikale behandeling van Cookie Monster en Grover

Ouens, daar is geen geheim van die feit dat ons lief is nie Sesame straat en die pragtige verslawing aan koekiesmonster aan koekies (veral in sy 'Call Me Maybe' parodie).

Hierdie lekkerny, hoewel dit nie so treffend is as "Deel dit miskien nie", is redelik soet. Cookie Monster en Grover neem klassieke popkultuur in die EW-kantoor aan en maak hul eie draai met koekies Die honger Spele, The Avengers, Doctor Who, en Die Nuuskamer (nie Skemering, alhoewel. Hulle het standaarde).

Ons sal sê dat Cookie Monster's Honger speletjies is die beste deel van die afdeling, veral met die lirieke van Cookie Monster, soos "Oh me the tribute from Sesame Street/ jag koekies wat lekker is om te eet/ in hierdie vreeslike distopie/ Laat my wag op die koekie-kopie." Grover se stukkies is ook redelik oulik.

Dan is daar die eetbare hulk van Cookie Monster Die Avengers, en sy super -idealistiese, vasberade etiese nuusman. Kyk na die volledige video op Entertainment Weekly. Meer Cookie Monster -parodieë, asseblief.


Resepboks: ‘Hunger Games ’ resepte

Dit was nie net die drama van die arena wat aanhangers van Suzanne Collins en#8217 “Hunger Games geteister het nie, van die eenvoud van 'n District 12 -herverwerking tot die weelderige Capitol -feeste, die kookkunsbeskrywings was ook fantasties.

Terwyl die afwagting vir die vrystelling van die film op 23 Maart begin opbou het, het ons die lesers gevra om die kenmerkende geregte van die Hunger Games te dekonstrueer en vir ons resepte te gee vir die kenmerkende brode, Greasy Sae -bredies en ander voorbeelde van Panem -kookkuns. Maar ons het geen idee gehad hoe merkwaardig kreatief u sou wees nie, en ook nie hoe heerlik die resultate was nie.

Voorleggings kom van fans van “Hunger Games ” van regoor die Verenigde State en die Verenigde Koninkryk, vergesel van notas wat ons laat glimlag, sug of luidrugtig lag. Een het voorgestel dat ons wildehonde met damwater kombineer. 'N Ander een het die idee van die arena se suikerbessies na hoë laventelhoogte geneem, terwyl ander brooddeeg groen gekleur het en dit met seewier en sout toegedien het ter ere van Distrik 4. Nie verrassend dat tientalle resepte hulde gebring het aan die bok van Prim ’s, Lady .


Koekie -monster neem 'Hunger Games' aan, sing oor Cookie -Copia - resepte

Wêreldwye webgevegte bied aan

Nadat Ernie en die res van die Keebler -elwe 'n pompeuse en nuuskierige Britse heer gestuur het, keer hulle terug aan die werk aan die nuutste groep E.L. Fudgie Stripe Rainbow Chip Wafers ™. Fast Eddie pak pakkette in, terwyl die emmers in elke rigting vou.

In die verte kan 'n flou gedreun gehoor word.

Die professor kyk na die termodinamika van saamgeperste fudge -vloei en kyk by die venster uit terwyl hy aan warm kakao drink.

Die professor laat sak sy kakebeen en dan sy beker en breek dit in honderd stukke op die vloer. "Aanval! Ons word aangeval!"

Die gedreun ontplof:
"COOOOOOOKKKIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSS."

Die Cookie Monster, wat pas uit 'n anonieme Cookies -byeenkoms op Pepperidge Farm geskop is omdat hy 'n geval van Malomars ingesmokkel het, het 'n reuk gekry van die soet Keebler -aroma. Hy was nie in staat om sy drange te beheer nie, maar jaag met die boom in 'n desperate en gekke poging om die koekieskatte binne te gooi.

"Slagstasies!" skree Ernie. "Man jou posisies! Dit is nie 'n boor nie! Herhaal! Dit is nie 'n boor nie!"

So, Steve, kan The Cookie Monster baie stukkies snuif, of sal die Keebler Elves hierdie verwoestende aanvaller afweer?

STEVE: Ek het lanklaas so 'n eensydige wedstryd gesien. Die Keebler Elves is so uitgeskiet dat hierdie wedstryd binne sekondes verby is.

Kom ons kyk eers na groottes. Hierdie elwe is klein - net ons elk! Die koekie -monster swaai dit met gemak opsy. En moenie hierdie wedstryd verwar met die wedstryd Rottweiler vs Chihuahuas nie. Hierdie elwe is nie gemeen soos die Chihuahuas nie - hulle is snaakse, lomp, weerlose elwe. As The Cookie Monster 'n geur kry van die geur van sjokoladeskyfies, glinster sy oë en niks, veral klein tekenprentelwe, sal sy onversadigbare koekie -aptyt in die pad staan.

As u daarna na hul bios [dooie skakel] kyk, noem hulle dinge soos 'spegte' en 'kewers' as hul 'grootste vrees'. As dit hul grootste probleme is, dan loop hulle 'n wêreld van seer in die gesig wanneer die koekie -monster verskyn. Die meeste van hulle sal waarskynlik hul hol boom dadelik laat vaar en verskrik vlug vir die veiligheid van hul Club (R) of Town House (R) in die stad.

Brian, om The Cookie Monster weg te hou van die lekkernye in die boom, is soos om Darryl Strawberry weg te hou van kokaïen. Dit kan net nie gedoen word nie.

BRIAN: Ek gee nie om hoe erg die Cookie Monster sy Cookie Crack ™ -oplossing nodig het nie, daar is geen manier dat hy hierdie een kan wen nie.

Die Keebler Tree House is 'n versterkte posisie. As jy Zoeloe gesien het, sal jy weet dat forte hul posisie kan beklee, selfs as hulle 50-tot-1 in die getal is. Uit die scenario is dit duidelik dat die elwe voorbereid is op so 'n aanval. As ons veronderstel CM kan verby die projektielwapens kom, is hy 'n gonner sodra hulle loskom met die ketels gesmelte fudge.

En dit is nie net 'n fort nie. dit is 'n boomfort, wat dit in wese onverbeterlik maak. Elke kind jonger as 12 sal vir jou sê dat die enigste wapen wat teen 'n boomvesting affekteer, 'n ma is wat 'etenstyd' skree. Tensy die Cookie Monster 'n paar groot geheime bewaar, kan hy nie by die profiel pas nie. Nog erger vir CM, die grootteverskil werk teen hom: dit is 'n boomfort wat vir elwe gebou is. Hy pas nie deur die klein venster nie, en selfs al veg hy verby die deur, kan hy nie die klein wenteltrap opstaan ​​na die volgende verdieping nie. Hy sal iewers vasgeklem word en 'n sitende eend beland.

Daar is geen manier waarop die koekie -monster dit alles op sy eie kan oorkom nie, verslawende drange of nie. En wees verseker dat hy heeltemal op sy eie sal wees. As sy Sesamstraat -vriende toevallig opdaag (wat moontlik is omdat hulle waarskynlik 'n bekommerde oproep van sy borg, die Cookie Crisp -rower, sal kry), is die laaste ding wat hy sal doen om hom te help om sy gewoonte te voed. 'Hallo, koekie -monster', sê Big Bird. "Vandag se episode word aan u gebring deur die letter 'ek', soos in 'ingryping'. Kan u 'ingryping' sê?" Die genadige wenners, die elwe is lekker genoeg om 'n klomp metadonkoekers op te slaan vir sy reis na die kliniek.

STEVE: Zoeloe? Sekerlik, ek het dit gesien. Maar ek het ook Godzilla, Jaws, King Kong en 'n magdom ander flieks gesien waar jou boomfort -analogie net nie pas nie. In die woorde van 'n Godzilla -sleepwa (of was dit Madonna?), "Size is Everything." Buitendien, ek het u 'versterkte' boomhuis -posisie gesien. Kom ons kyk - 'n groot gapende opening op grondvlak, nog een ongeveer 2 voet daarvandaan, en dan 'n derde en 'n vierde. Eintlik sou ek sê dat daar meer boomhokke oopgaan as wat daar boom is. Hierdie sogenaamde "verdediging" het meer gate as 'n Switserse kaasfabriek.

Om te sien hoe verseker Cookie Monster se oorwinning is, kom ons kyk wat hulle kan doen om hom te stuit. U stel gesmelte fudge voor. Hy sal net lag en dit insluk. (Wel, ons weet almal dat CM nooit eintlik sy koekies sluk nie - hy sit dit net in die mond en verander dit in koekiekrummels.) U noem ook projektielwapens. Wat kan hulle na hom gooi/vuur? Koekies? Dit sal CM net verder lok. Ek veronderstel dat hulle ook skyfies, neute, rosyne of selfs Fast Eddie of Flo kan gooi. Maar aangesien dit alles deel uitmaak van die koekie -omgewing, is dit alles net 'n happie vir die koekie -monster. Ek sien eerlikwaar nie uit watter moontlike verdediging die elwe kan vind om The Cookie Monster te stuit om die Keebler Tree te kry nie.

Uiteindelik is die doodslag dat The Cookie Monster die ontsaglike mag van wettige ergernis meebring op dieselfde manier as Microsoft, Disney en McDonalds (tm, tm, tm onderskeidelik). Kyk! Ja, selfs al verhoed die elwe op een of ander manier The Cookie Monster uit sy koekie -waansin, sy advokate sal naby wees en hulle sal die elwe dagvaar. Uiteindelik wen die koekie -monster in elk geval.

Hoe voorspel ek die uitslag van hierdie wedstryd? C. C is vir koekie. Dit is goed genoeg vir my.

BRIAN: "Godzilla, Jaws, King Kong"? Dit klink soos 'n opstellyn uit 'n ou Carnac the Magnificent-skets. "Noem drie monsters wat te veel gegradeer is wat hulle agterstewe laat skop het." Om die koekie -monster by die groep in te sit, maak net sy saak seer. En ten minste was die drie wettige monsters. Soos u korrek uitwys, kan CM eintlik niks eet nie. Geen tande, geen slukderm, geen spysverteringskanaal om van te praat nie. Gaan hy net die elwe doodmaak? Het hy selfs tandvleis? Die filmmonsters wat jy noem, het almal tande gehad en is steeds morsdood.

Dit is ook interessant hoe jy probeer om afmetings te buig om by jou doel te pas. Eerstens sê jy dat CM ongelooflik groot is in vergelyking met elwe, maar dan is die boomhuisvensters (wat vir elwe gemaak is) 'gapende gate'. Watter een is dit? Gepraat van King Kong, hierdie dinamika laat my baie aan hom dink. Sekerlik, King Kong kon die Empire State -gebou klim en sy hande binne steek en vroue gryp, maar hy kon nooit iets aan die gebou self doen nie en kon nooit almal kry wat daarbinne was nie. Op dieselfde manier kan CM binne -in kom en 'n koekie of 'n elf gryp, maar hy kan nie binnekom soos hy nodig het om die plek oor te neem nie. Na 'n paar frustrerende minute gryp CM vir Ma Keebler en gaan na die hoë takke, waar hy neergeskiet word deur tweespaaie wat deur Snap, Crackle en Pop gevlieg word.

Jou ander punte is lagwekkend. Keebler het baie van hul eie prokureurs om die boelies in Sesamstraat aan te pak. En as u op soek is na iets wat die elwe na CM kan gooi, hoe gaan dit met 'n goeie Elfin Magic ™? Of nog erger, 'n paar multigraanbeskuitjies. Dit sou hom beslis in sy spore stop.

As die stryd in 'n oop veld was, het CM moontlik 'n kans, maar die kans is groot. Die Elwe is net te ongewoon goed ™.

Dankie aan Sarah Westcott (met 'n hulp van Martin "martinl" Leuschen) wat hierdie wedstryd voorgestel het.

ANTWOORD VAN DIE WEEK GRUDGIE TM

Die wedstryd van Cookie Monster vs. die Keebler Elves sou nie 'n stryd van een minuut wees soos so baie nie - dit sou 'n oorlog wees. Dit is duidelik dat die eerste geveg na die Cookie Monster sou gaan - hy sou so gek wees van sy koekie Jones dat hy die kante van die Elwe se hol boom sou wegruk om by hul koekwinkels te kom. Toe hy in die koekiesfabriek was, het hy 'n elf wat so dom was, verpletter dat hy die koekies kon verdedig, en as hy die koekies wou verdedig, sou hy dit aan die vuisvou gryp en dit oor sy skouer gooi - alles om by die koekies uit te kom. Dit sou Grendel wees op die Danes, 'n toneel van slagting en verwoesting. Maar sodra hy by die koekwinkels kom, vergeet hy van die elwe en eet totdat hy nie meer kan eet nie, en verkruimel koekies oor sy kop en krummel in krummels totdat hy flou word. Die oorlewende elwe sou kon hergroepeer buite hul afgekapte boom en 'n plan begin maak.

U sien, die Elwe is effens fisies meer formidabel as miere, maar hulle het een groot voordeel bo die Monster. Kyk na die koekie -monster: hy is 'n eenvoudige wese. Hy het nie net 'n koekie-gedagte nie, hy is so dof dat hy nie in staat is om ingewikkelde gedagtes soos "Miskien moet ek nie die masjinerie wat die koekies maak, te vernietig nie." En kyk dan na die verstandelike vermoë van die Elwe. Hulle het 'n modelfabriek met 'n monteerbaan, masjiene wat deur Elf gemaak is, 'n 'professor', knipborde, 'n bestuurshiërargie, 'n winsgewende vervaardigingskontrak met die Keebler -korporasie, ens. hulle is vandag sonder om te weet hoe om hul opposisie te verpletter. Dus, as hulle eers die kans kry om te hergroepeer en te begin beplan, sal dit nie mooi wees nie. Hulle sal nie net vir hul huis veg nie - hulle sal veg om die dooies te wreek, om terug te kom by die monster wat 'n hele kwart se wins vernietig het, en om die finansiële heerskappy van die Enchanted Forest te behou. Hulle sal niks stop nie. Hulle wag totdat die koekie -monster flou geword het, en sluip vinnig en stil terug in die Hollow Tree -fabriek. Terwyl die beste Elfmeganika die lopende band herstel, swerm die res van die elwe oor die versadigde koekmonster met toue en voorskootstringe - wat hom binne sekondes gebind en hulpeloos maak. Hulle laat katrolle van die balke val, en van toe af is dit 'n eenvoudige taak om hom op die vervoerband te sleep wat na die oond lei.

Die aaklige reuk van brandende polyesterbont bly dae lank oor die Betowerde Woud, maar die Elwe het die oorwinning, en dit sal nie lank neem om hul fabriek te herstel nie. En as die volgende bondel Keebler -koekies 'n nare chemiese nasmaak het en soms 'n bietjie blou pels bevat. hulle smaak nie erger as die gemiddelde Keebler -koekie nie.

"Slagstasies!" skree Ernie. Dit is reg. Die elwe het eintlik gevegstasies, wat beteken dat hulle waarskynlik 'n soort wapens het, of dit nou klubs is wat van boomtakke of klein mini -tazers gemaak word. Honger pas nie by 'n skare kwaai elf soldate wat hul gras en inkomste beskerm nie. Koekie -monster is ook ondervoed. Hy kou net die koekies en spoeg die oorblyfsels uit. Dit kan sy onvermoë verklaar om albei sy oë op dieselfde plek te fokus. Die elwe wen. Hulle is gewapen, georganiseerd en het 'n visie van 20/20.

ROTW Bronsmedalje Grudgie TM

Hier is die ding: Anders as Kermit, wat sukses behaal het met sindikasie, is Cookie Monster 'n Muppet sonder kennis van die advertensiewêreld. Hy het 'n beskutte, nee, belastingbeskermde lewe gelei in die vriendelike grense van openbare televisie, sy gooierige oë gerol (tm) en gasheer vir pretensieuse middelbrou-tariewe soos Monsterstuk -teater. Cookie het sy vrolike weg gegaan, ooit irrelevant en kommersieel -vry - tot nou toe.

Want as Cookie in die Kingdom of Keebler (tm) is, beteken dit dat hy van die skaars PBS -atmosfeer na die nare, mededingende wêreld van kommersiële TV vervoer is. Skielik word alles wat hy doen beoordeel op grond van sy vermoë om produkte te verkoop en 'n beroep op adverteerders te vind. (Werklike adverteerders - letters en syfers sal dit nie in hierdie wêreld sny nie.) En wie het die finale oordeel oor wat Cookie al dan nie kan doen? Waarom, die Elwe, natuurlik! Hulle is die enigste potensiële adverteerders in sig! "Probeer ons ons koekies eet, hm? Luister hier, CM, ons wil nie hê dat kykers moet dink dat ons 'n vuil, vuil monster ons produkte in die hande kan kry nie. Sleg vir ons korporatiewe beeld. Beter laat lê, anders trek ons adverteer en laat u vasgevang wees in 'n borglose limbo. " Cookie Monster kan nie sy enigste bron van advertensie -inkomste aanval sonder om sy bestaan ​​in gevaar te stel nie.

Asof dit nie erg genoeg was nie, vind Cookie ook uit dat in 'n wêreld waar mense eintlik omgee vir graderings, hy nie met oulike segmente oor die telling van sjokoladeskyfies kan klaarkom nie. Hy wurg hom gou met die drade wat sy arms omhoog hou, nog 'n PBS -kweekhuisblom wat nie in die Real TV World (tm) kon oorleef nie.

Keebler "Elwe" al die pad. U wonder miskien hoe 'n handjievol pintgrootte elwe teen die woedende, koekies-afgryse wat Cookie Monster is, kan staan, maar laat ek verduidelik en u sal die lig sien. Kom ons kyk na CM: Eerstens is hy 'n muppet. Muppets is nie regtig vreesaanjaend nie (moontlik met die uitsondering van die groot krapkewers uit The Dark Crystal). Hulle dra ook nie wapens nie. Die beste ou koekie -monster kan 'n reuse styrafoam -letter "C" wees. Alhoewel hy dit teen die Keebler Elves 'Tree Fortress/Assault Base kon bash, sou dit nie veel skade berokken nie. En ten slotte, terwyl dit groot is, bestaan ​​CM heeltemal uit vloerbedekking, vulsel en 'n gelatienagtige blou stof (wat verantwoordelik is vir die lewering van muppetjies). Hy is 'n groot, stadig bewegende teiken vir alle diaboliese snack-voedsel-wapens wat die Keebler-weermag tot sy beskikking het.

Kom ons kyk nou na die elwe: Elwe is harde beeste. Al ooit Lord of the Rings gelees? Hulle is 'n antieke ras van kragtige vegters en krygers, en hul vestings en vestings was een van die magtigste ter wêreld. Die Keebler-variëteit is sekerlik klein, maar hulle het steeds toegang tot Ancient Elven Majiks (tm), om nie eens te praat van die moderne wapens wat die Keebler-ryk kan aanskaf nie weens sy groot inkomste uit snack-voedsel. Benewens hul moderne wapens wat deur die Ou Elwe Majiks (tm) betower is, is die Keebler Elves 'Tree Fortress/Assault Base een van die strukture wat die sterkste verdedig word ter wêreld. Dit lyk van buite alles vriendelik en rustiek, maar aan die binnekant is dit 'n bruisende korf van paramilitêre aktiwiteite. Hulle het hul magiese koekie -ontvangs om te verdedig en die middele om dit te doen. Vegters en tenks van elfgrootte word onder die boom gebêre, terwyl honderde opgeleide Magical Elf Commando in die blare hierbo en die omliggende platteland wag en gereed is om te val op elkeen wat hul huis bedreig.

Ek is jammer, maar die koekie -monster gaan tot 'n taai blou hoop goo verlaag word voordat hy die boom bereik. In die ergste geval kan sommige elwe ligte matbrandwonde opdoen terwyl hy sy opgeblase, rottende karkas van hul grasperk af sleep, sodat die boom goed lyk vir die volgende advertensie.

- Josh Rodriguez Hoog fantasie -omgewing. Koekie -monster put uit die edele figuur van die soekende ridder. Net soos koning Arthur en sy ridders, is die monster op soek na die heilige koekie en sal dit nie bloot deur fisiese besorgdheid beïnvloed word nie, want aan hom behoort die koninkryk van die heer wanneer die volmaakte koekies syne is. Die koekie -monster maak ook gebruik van die antieke afstammeling van die magtige bezerker -krygers van Noord -Yore. Sy strydkreet (COOOOKIE, COOOOKIE, COOOOKIE) gee hom krag en maak hom ongevoelig vir alle pyn. Dit is belangrik as u teen 'n baie magiese wedloop gaan. Soos Conan die barbaar, sal hy al die maggebruikers met 'n swak wil wat sy heilige soeke waag, verpletter. Die hoë soeke sal slaag.

Historiese perspektief. In die ewige konflik van beskaafde nasies (die elwe) vs naby die barbaarse horde indringers (Die horde van een monster). Vorige optredes: China + Great Wall vs Mongole = China verower Rome + Hadrians Wall vs Primevel Skotse voetbal Hooligans = Engelse voetbal Hooligans Engeland + die versterkte stad York vs Midevil Skotse hooligans onder leiding van Mel Gibson = Afgedankte York Frankryk + Maginot Line vs Duitsers = Charles de gaulle. Soos die geskiedenis getoon het, sal 'n statiese vesting teen 'n voldoende vasberade teenstander val. Beide die wette van hoë fantasie en die neiging tot die geskiedenis ondersteun hierdie gevolgtrekking. Die blou bont ding sal sy teenstanders verpletter en feesvier.

- D.Merzel 'n Paar punte- As die Keebler Elwe so Damn Goeie proe, dink jy eintlik dat die geriatriese mini-me's nog nooit vantevore aangeval is deur 'n reuse, gebrabbel sprekende, oorskatte pop nie? (Nee, nie George W. Bush nie, alhoewel daar aangehaal word dat die Keebler se koekies die beste 'crunchamabilty' en 'heerlikheid' het wat hy nog ooit gehad het.) Kom! Na meer as 75 jaar sou hulle 'n foutiewe verdedigingstelsel moes opdok wat selfs Sean Connery in sy vele rolle (Entrapment, The Rock, Saturday Night Fever) nie kon breek nie.

Ook definitiewe plus- MAGIC! Daar word duidelik op die Keebler -tuisblad gesê dat daar nog nie een besering of siekte was sedert Doc aangesluit het nie! Deur 'Doc's Magic Potion' (tm) (wat vreemd na vodka ruik) te gebruik, is hulle dus immuun teen alle vorme van beserings- wat alle aanvalle van die Cookie Monster duidelik laat vaar! Uiteindelik besluit hulle om die koekmonster te bombardeer met 'Cosmic Brownies' (ahem .. hulle het deur die 60's geleef), wat sy dwelmverslawing bevredig en hom uit die stryd bring. Intussen probeer sommige van die ander elwe, vol Doc se doepa, daardie 'Babe', die praatvark/marionet, juffrou Piggy, vind. Geez- jy het nooit gewonder hoekom hy Fast Eddie genoem word nie? (Let op: die Keebler-webwerf bevat ook Casey Keebler as 'The Big Basher' en Elmer Keebler as 'Gereed, gewillig, in staat'.)

Opsomming- CM 'half gebak', elwe wat pret het met varke, en Sean Connery wat die aand wegboog en 'How to get to Sesame Street' neurie.

- Peter Tutham HA! Ek spot met hierdie stryd. Hierdie stryd is reeds geveg en gewen. Iets wat u dalk nie weet nie, is dat ek op Sesamstraat geleef en gesterf het toe ek ongeveer vier was. Dit was my venster na die wêreld. Ek het alles wat verband hou met Sesamstraat gekoop, en ek was trots daarop. Ek het ook 'n reeks storieboeke gekoop, en een daarvan is 'Cookie Monster and the Cookie Tree' genoem. & ltCartman & gt Ag, ek kan sien waarheen dit op pad is. & lt/Cartman & gt In hierdie verhaal was daar 'n boom met 'n mond en twee oë wat (verras!) die helder vrugte van sjokoladekoekies dra. Dit was die eiendom van 'n heks, wat, ter voorbereiding van die koms van die groot CM, 'n betowering daaroor gemaak het. Hierdie spreuk was in werklikheid dat niemand die koekies op die boom kan eet nie, tensy hulle dit met iemand anders gedeel het. Dit is natuurlik 'n redelike groot struikelblok vir Cookie Monster. Hy gaan onmiddellik na Sesamstraat om iemand te vind om mee te deel. Die bevolking is egter (on) verbasend nie oortuig dat CM regtig wil deel nie.

Intussen vind die heks uit dat die towerkuns vir almal werk, sodat selfs sy nie die geliefde koekies kan kry nie. Terwyl die koekie -monster na die boom terugkeer om te kla, verskyn die heks en bied aan om die koekies te deel. CM aanvaar. Hy deel een koekie met haar, draai dan om en begin die boom verslind, reg voor die heks. Binnekort staan ​​die boom nog steeds, maar sy takke is ontbloot. Cookie Monster sit op die grond met 'n enorme maag en lyk baie tevrede met sy optrede. Dit is beslis 'n wonderlike verhaal - 'n allegorie oor hoe goed dit is om te deel. Maar ha ha, daar is nog 'n groter les te leer: Koekie -monster + Koekieboom = Totale verwoesting. Koekie -monster het elke koekie op die boom geëet, saam met die blare en heel moontlik 'n deel van die bas. Dit alles reg voor 'n heks. 'N Heks, dwaas. Een met ware magie - die soort wat jou kan verslaan of die vermoë om selfsugtig te wees met die kos aan 'n boom kan wegneem. En CM was nie bang nie, EN hy het ongedeerd daaruit gekom. Dink u dat die Keebler Elves se koekie -skeppings-/vervoermagie dit moontlik kan vergelyk? Daardie reënboogskeppende idiote kan dit die beste uit die weg ruim of verslind word.

Die ware moraal: as jy 'n koekie het, en Cookie Monster teen 60+ km / h op jou afloop, is dit die beste om uit die weg te ruim. O, en deel natuurlik met ander.

- 'C' is vir Charge Man - wat vir baie nie regtig goed genoeg is nie. Soos almal weet wat die klassieke HARDWARE WARS gesien het, is Cookie Monster 'n verre familielid van Chewbacca. Dink u dat enigiemand met Chewbacca 'n probleem met 'n klomp elwe het?

- Die Bunyip. Ek dink dit sou die elwe wees. Dink daaraan, die koekie -monster is 'n reuse pelsbont. Soos ons weet, is hy so groot soos 'n klein hondjie onder die massiewe jas. Die elwe is almal spiere om al die koekies op te lig (wat ongeveer 3 keer groter is). Boonop moet u die artilêre aspek in ag neem. Die elwe het al die katapulte wat hulle gebruik om besprenkels en sjokoladeskyfies te skiet, en wat nie. Vul 'n paar van die babas met skeermeslemmetjies en jy het 'n gerasperde koekie -monster.

- Cockulese Ongeag die grootte van die gate in die boom, is dit steeds GATE. Dit verswak beslis die strukturele integriteit van die boom. As die CM regtig op die koekies was, sou hy waarskynlik 'n goeie gat in die boom kon slaan en 'n paar van die elwe kon hap. Miskien sal hy selfs van die klein dubbelzijdige elfkoekies maak wat so lekker is.

- Die bul afskuwelik. Eerlik. almal wat die afgelope dertig jaar in Amerika grootgeword het, het gesien waartoe Big Blue (A.K.A. - Cookie Monster TM) in staat is. Hy vreet selfs sy eie hande in sy soeke na vernietige koekie-vervulling. Ek sien nie hoe 'n boom vol viooltjies-elwe die honger-gekke Muppet TM sal kan afweer nie. In die gesig van honger kan 'n Muppet TM alles doen.

Cookie Monster wen binne 'n minuut, want hy eet al die elwe, die koekies en die helfte van die boom voordat sy inhoudsgevoelige maag elfvleis opspoor en hom badkamer toe stuur.

- The Devil in a Skinsuit Ek het nog niks so eensydigs gesien sedert Britney Spears 'n gebroke borsvergroting ondergaan het nie. Dit is verreweg die koekie-monster. Hy kap net deur die boom op pad na die koekies, byt die koppe van 'n paar elwe af en spandeer die res van sy dae hoog op Cookie-Crack totdat hy begin omslaan en dink dat daar 'koekie-insekte' in hom is vel, tuit van sy arms af en draai in die plaaslike hospitaal/rehabilitasiesentrum vasgemaak aan 'n tafel.

- Rob the Turkey Dit gaan die koekie -monster wees, jy weet dit, ek weet dit, en jy kan wed dat jou fuzzy blou esel die elwe dit ken. Ek bedoel, laat ons praat oor die man agter die monster. Sien jy hierdie arme man? Hy lyk dalk gelukkig, maar dit is omdat hy koekies het. Hy is alleen in die wêreld. Niemand sal saam met hom piekniek hou nie, al wat hy hoef te doen is sjokolade -verslawing. Sy selfbeeld kan nie so hoog wees nie. Sy blou pels moet sy stortgordels deurgaans verstop, en sy 'googley' oë het dikwels 'n kinderprobleem vir hom veroorsaak. Sy enigste vrystelling is koekies, en die man vind 'n FABRIEK vol! Het jy Scarface aan die einde gesien waar Al Pichino so hoog is dat hy raakgeskiet word en dit niks doen nie? Sê hallo vir Al Cookie. hierdie haan-a-roches het nie 'n kans nie. 'N Hol boom sal hulle nie red nie, nie die hout nie, nie die warm fudge nie, nie god nie. Die vlerke van die feë is op die punt om C.M House Of Pain, die toelating, hul gat en die lynsterre hier te betree.

- Andrew Ferrier Ernie en sy mede -elwe sal hierdie een wen. Hier is die rede: In die kommentaar is 'n punt gemaak dat die elwe bang is vir spegte en kewers? Waarom is hulle bang vir sulke wesens? Eet hulle elwe? Nee. Die rede hiervoor is dat hulle bome kan beskadig en/of doodmaak. As u woonplek en u besigheid 'n hol boom was, is u ook bekommerd oor spegte en boorkewers. Die koekie -monster (CM) is egter nie in staat om bome te beskadig nie (hy is te dom om 'n kettingsaag te gebruik), sodat die elwe nie die vulsel deur CM laat skrik nie.

Uit wat in die TV-advertensies verskyn, is die grootste opening in die hol boom ongeveer vyf tot vyf en 'n half voet bo die grond. Hoewel CM deur die diafragma kon pas, is dit onwaarskynlik dat die kort (die meeste Sesamstraat-muppets redelik kort is) en die out-of-vorm CM daarnatoe kan klim. Dit sou CM se aanvalle beperk tot die vensters op die onderste vlak. Alhoewel hy op hierdie manier nogal verwoesting kan veroorsaak, het die elwe 'n kragtige wapen wat hulle kan gebruik om CM groot pyn te berokken. Die boom is 'n bakkery. Alle bakkerye gebruik oonde. Oonde kan dinge tot hoë temperatuur verhit. Die elwe verhit eenvoudig alle los, lang stukke metaal wat hulle kan kry en verbrand dan CM daarmee. Om deur 'n metaalvurk van 450 grade gesteek (of net aangeraak) te word, is genoeg om iemand te ontmoedig om aan te val en CM is geen uitsondering nie, want hy hardloop huilend terug na Sesamstraat, met 'n reuk van gebrande muppetbont in die lug.

Uiteindelik is daar magie. Op grond van jare lange CRPG's (rekenaarrolspeletjies), het ek geleer dat elwe 'n magiese vermoë het wat wissel na gelang van die tipe elf waarmee u te doen het. In die advertensies is vasgestel dat die Keebler -elwe, hoewel hulle nie van die Tolkien -tipe is nie, en uiters kort deur selfs die Santa -elfstandaard, oor 'n magiese vermoë beskik. In omtrent alle magiese stelsels is daar gevegspreuke. Selfs die eenvoudigste magiese missiel spel sal CM laat skrik van skrik. As hy dit ook regkry om 'n elf te beseer, kan die ander elwe altyd genesende spreuke gebruik om hul kameraad te laat herleef. Kortom, die koekie -monster is heeltemal uit die klas en sal ten minste honger huis toe gaan as dit nie ernstig beseer is nie.

- Die demente sterrekundige Dit kom neer op bondgenote in hierdie geval. Cookie Monster het 'n leër van sterk bondgenote aan sy sy. Snuffleupagus kan die hele boom ontwortel en die koekies vir hom uitskud. En as dit 'n verlengde voorkoms word, moenie die magte van Oscar the Grouch oorweeg nie, om die vullis wat daar is, na 'n paar weke te stop, dat die reuk so erg is dat hulle net sal oorgee. Aan die ander kant het die elwe kinders aan wie hulle in die verlede koekies gegee het, maar watter kind kan hul koue korporatiewe manipulasies teen Sesamstraat skaar. Die enigste ding wat kan help, is as hulle al hul neefs inroep. Kersvader se elwe kan die speelgoedfabriek binne 'n paar minute omskep in 'n ammunisie -aanleg om te help. Die slegte fantasie -roman -elwe skop altyd die boude van iemand wat 'n boom probeer vernietig. Uiteindelik dink ek egter dat Cookie Monster se bondgenote eers daar sal kom en hom sal help om die basis oop te maak om die koekies binne te smul. Dan sluit almal aan vir 'n opwindende weergawe van "C is for Cookie", en hulle leef almal gelukkig en ewig. Wel, behalwe die elwe.

- Joel Mathis, ek sien hoe Cookie Monster hierdie wedstryd wen. Verder sien ek dat die gevolgtrekking nie mooi sal wees nie.

Daar is genoem dat daar E.L. Fudge -koekies in die boom. Soos enige koekeliefhebber weet, het E.L. Fudge -koekies het die vorm van elwe. Keebler Elwe. Begin die prentjie hier vorm? Cookie Monster sal onvermydelik hierdie heerlike lekkernye proe, en wil hulle meer lok deur die heerlike kombinasie van fudge en shortbread. MEER! C.M. sal dan die Keebler Elves self sien: hoekom, hulle lyk net soos E.L. Fudge koekies! Yum!

Soos ek gesê het, dit sal nie 'n mooi prentjie wees nie. Hierdie Grudge Match sal aan u gebring word deur die letters A [soos in AAAARRRGH!], O [Soos in "o, die mensdom!"] En die getal 0 [dit is nul, soos in die kans wat die Keeblers het om te wen.]

- J.M. Dit hang regtig af van watter soort elwe ons hier te doen het. Broers Grimm elwe? Nee, hulle het skoene gemaak, nie gebak nie. Tolkien se elwe? Nee, hulle het duisende jare gelede die aarde verlaat, aan die einde van die Derde Era ™. Hoekom nou weer vir ons kom bak? D & D ™ of Warhammer ™ elwe? Alhoewel dit goedkoop Tolkien -ripoffs is, waarskynlik nie. As dit hulle was, kon selfs Grover HULLE hanteer. Of Herry. Laat staan ​​Cookie. Kersvader se elwe? Nee, hulle het speelgoed gemaak, nie gebak nie.

So wie is oor? O wag, daar is nog Harry Potter's ™ House Elves! Laat ek sien.
-Slaviese toewyding aan hul meesters? tjek.
-Probeer u altyd hul prestasie verbeter? tjek.
-Hooploos huishoudelik? tjek.
-Masochistiese flagellators en mortificators? jurie is nog steeds uit.
Ergo: Dit lyk vir my of Cookie Monster teen die elwe van Harry Potter is.

As u nou die huiselwe (solitêr nogal pateties, nog meer pateties, met groepe van hulle wat mekaar raai, alhoewel hulle nogal magies is, moet ek erken) sonder hulp aan die Cookie Monster, wat hier die geval sal wees, aangesien dit 'n Swamp Fox ™, ​​Hit and Run ™, Tora! Tora! Tora! ™, blitzkrieg™ tipe sluipaanval wat ons bespreek. Cookie would gobble them, and their cookies, and their ingredients, and their factory, up in no time at all.

Therefore my prediction would have been that within 8 seconds™, Cookie would have left a pile of splinters, baker hats, teeny-weeny rolling pins, and other rubble behind and gone looking for the Nabisco™ plant. That's what my answer would have been, so I voted Cookie Monster.

HOWEVER, The scenario remarks "for smuggling in a case of Mallomars." Since when does Cookie Monster have the self control to hold onto a case of any breed of cookies? He may prefer chocolate chips and oatmeal raisin, but no case of cookies will be holding up against his appetite.

Therefore, I must reconsider. It is clear from the scenario that the alleged "Cookie Monster" is an impostor. He therefore forfeits, and the elves win the day.

OUCH! "LEGGO, LASS!"
Sorry, my wife just pinched me for being so anal-retentively particular as to notice that elf-sized inconsistency.

- Obscured Underlord A word of advice to the Keebler Elves: I don't care how much Elfin magic you pull outta your collective wazoo, you can't stop Cookie Monster! The big blue goofball has it all over this match:
He's got THE RAGE ! Hey, if you had your precious airtime on Sesame Street taken over by that obnoxious little so-and-so Elmo, you'd be pretty ticked off too! Well, Cookie is just a ticking time bomb waiting to happen.
He's got Mentos Level Coolness ! Who could forget the classic song, "C is For Cookie"? I know it's right up there with "Theme From Teeny Little Super Guy" as one of the songs I miss the most from the old Sesame Street, before that fire-engine-red brat Elmo replaced that sort of stuff with "Elmo's World"!
And he's got The Eye of the Tiger . All he wants is his cookies. They're his driving goal in life. Nothing, I repeat, *nothing* comes between him and his cookies, unless the producers are trying to teach the value of sharing or something, but I don't see *that* happening. Unlike that stupid Elmo, who just sings in that annoying baby voice and shows clips of smiley infants. Blargh.
This match is over before you can say "ME WANT COOKIE! ME WANT ELMO'S HEAD ON STICK!"
You can tell I'm bitter, can't you?

- Andy the Anarchist- Did I mention how much I hate Elmo? Cookie Monster takes this match with Ernie and his pals transformed into elfin mush. The fatal flaw in your argument is the projectile weapons. It's like saying "Robert Downey Jr. can be cured if you throw enough drugs at him." Betty Ford would be ashamed of you, Brian. Face it, all the Keebler boys have available are either cookies, or ingredients for making cookies. Either way, it's what Cookie Monster wants. The elves are trying to put out a fire with gasoline.

Cookie Monster has an appetite not dissimilar to another Grudge champion: Homer J Simpson. Hurling cookies at Cookie Monster is like sending Homer to Hell Labs' Ironic Punishments Division and feeding him all the donuts in the world. Cookie Monster and Homer are cut from the same cloth, and James Coco can't hold a candle to either of them.

The only way that Cookie Monster can be stopped is if the elves figure out a way to bake Super Colon Blow™ bran crackers during the attack, thus rendering Cookie Monster, um. indisposed.

- HotBranch!
<groan>(I heard that Keebler thought Super Colon Blow™ bran crackers were a crappy idea)</groan> Cookie is just too versatile. Consider his alter ego, the creme de la creme of monster intelligentsia, Alistaire Cookie. As host of Monsterpiece Theatre, Cookie has undoubtedly done his research on elves, from the Brothers Grimm to Tolkien. He will know all about their strengths and weaknesses. Consider now yet another of Cookie's alter egos. Casey the Engineer. Some of you may remember a classic Sesame street song in which Casey was in charge of a train carrying cookies and ice cream, but said train was blocked by an untimely avalanche. Casey, naturally, wrestles with his own resolve and is tempted to eat the cookies he is sworn to deliver. However, just before he gives in, he hits on a solution that satisfies him and also takes care of the pesky avalanche. In his own words: "Me forget about the cookies. Me eat the *SNOW* instead. " Now, the present match is not altogether dissimilar. Those elves are determined to protect their cookies. Yet, simply substitute "elves" for "snow" in the above line, and you can easily see how Cookie can once again turn defeat into victory

- 1/2 Nelson The cookie monster (tm) dies a horrible death of MALNUTRITION. Think about it, all the guy ever eats is cookies, where are the major vitamins? Does he ever drink any Orange Juice? Does he ever eat his vegetables? No, this battle was decided years ago, when the various muscle groups gave up and bailed out on the CM. Talk about atrophy. Oh yeah, and the Keebler Elves: aren't they just some sort of glorified forced child labor? Make them seem a little cuter than most sweat shops, (sweet shops?) and suddenly its alright.

- red In "Cookie's Three Wishes" (narrated by Bob, he of more toupees than William Shatner) Cookie devoured an entire Chevy truck, so in addition to his high sucrose ingestion Cookie requires heavy iron supplements. And in the "Ernie's Ukelele" sketch Cookie devoured the ukelele, obviously for the fiber content.

There's one category missing from Cookie's "Four Basic Food Groups": meat (Children's Television Workshop caved in to PETA years ago), and Cookie Monster will not deny his cravings. Cookie Monster eats his way through the Keebler Tree, making a tasty repast of wood, cookies, and Keebler Elves alike.

- Chris 'Jedi' Knight is screaming "KEEBLER COOKIES ARE MADE OUT OF ELVES. OUT OF ELVES. " As most people know, Hillary Clinton made an appearance on Sesame Street. CM and the Hill became close friends after this appearance. It is a little known fact that CM was a close advisor for Bill Clinton, and is now an aide for Senator Hillary. This doesn't bode well for the elves.

So, this is how I see the fight coming down.
Night falls in the peaceful Keebler (tm) forest. Black suited shadowy figures with night vision scopes hide amongst the trees, waiting for the right moment to attack. CM makes a diversion, pulling the guards attention away from his simple task. (Hey, I've seen tons of movies. I know that they ALWAYS put the dumbest person on guard). Ernie the elf (tm?) is at his desk facing the window working out the numbers for the day and thinking about firing that dumbass JJ who screwed up the cookies yet again. What he doesn't notice is the tiny red dot in the middle of his forehead. BLAM!BLAM! Two clean shots to the head and Ernie is down. Fast Eddie comes to check on Earnie after hearing the shots and the Feds shoot, killing him, but not before he can raise an alarm. All hell breaks loose as the elves barricade themselves in the tree with automatic weapons and the firefight ensues.

The feds try to lay seige to the Keebler (tm) compound but the media is alerted and shows up in droves. The feds must call off their attack, instead containing the elves for weeks on end. Finally, the feds get, well, fed up and decide to make one last push into the Keebler (tm) compound. They send tanks in, guns a- blazing, setting the compound alight. Elves run for their lives, right into the waiting arms of CM, who dispatches them easily with his Crushing Monster Grip (tm). There is elf juice all over the ground, as well as matted in CM's fur. The carnage is great, and the elves never had a chance.

- A concerned citizen There is much internal dissention within the keebler ranks. Ernie doesn't have an iron hand on the proceedings and that will cost him. My proof? The 97 different varieties of Chips Deluxe. There's no teamwork there, and it's unlikely they'll get their act together in time to stop Cookie's rampant attack.

- Peanuts "COOOOOOOOOKIE. If you look at the tree, you'll find out that the entire core has been removed to accomodate the elves, their cookie-making equipment, as well as their cookies. As a result, the outer shell of their fort has dried up due to exposure to the air, and is now nothing more than a brittle piece of Drywood. Of course, Cookie Monster, being an overweight fat ball of fur, charges the fort in desperation to get the cookies inside. And the more he is desperate, the faster he charges.

Extremely-Fat-Overweight-Object + Fort-Made-of-Very-Brittle-Shell =
Complete Destruction of the Keebler Fort.

To add insult to injury, the Keebler Elves are rounded up and thrown into jail for Unsafe Building Practices, while the Cookie monster debates whether he should check in to Jenny Craig after eating about 2000 pounds of cookies.

- Tahna Los Keebler Elves all the way. in order to make all those cookies and send them world wide there must be many more elves then seen in the commercials. Therefore I see a Gulliver's Travels-Lilipution thing happening. Cookie Monster never had a chance once those elves start taking out his ankles.

- Chuck D Not only will its sheer bulk become an obsticle for it when attempting to penetrate the tree house, but Cookie Monster's addiction to cookies will lead it to wedge itself even further into the tree house. Cookie Monster, unable to get itself unwedged from the tight confines of the Keebler Treehouse, dies a lonely creature. And as CM's immovable carcass rots, the elves are forced to abandon their tree in a nomadic fashion, searching for the next most habitable tree - watch out Winnie The Pooh!

- I don't know - I'm retarded. Three words: cesium chip cookies. For those of you not familiar with basic chemistry, cesium is one of the lowest alkaloids on the periodic table. Each alkaloid becomes increasingly volatile when reacting with water as you go down the column. As soon as CM takes a bite of those cookies. milkshake. BOOM.

- Nick Zachariasen Given the enormous annual output of Keebler products, there is no way that one tree will have even a tiny fraction of their stockpiles. You cannot even tell me that the arboreal facility is their main factory, as it is too small and, besides, they have a different production line in the same space with each new ad. The Keebler tree is obviously a research-and-development lab that is occasionally used as a showroom for the TV camaras. So, most raiders who want cookies (e.g. Bozo-the-clown's sidekick, the Cookie-Crook and his hound, refugees from oppressive fat-farms, certain intrusive Web companies) will be going after the Keebler warehouses, not the lab, which has defenses only in the form of counter-industrial-espionage. Thus, the elves' tree is to Keebler what the Ardennes was to the Western Front: since no rational person would attack there, there is an overreliance upon natural barriers, the result being that it is highly vulnerable to a full-strength offensive by an irrational person. For everyone's favorite maniac Muppet, this one is a cake-walk (or a cookie-walk, if you will).

- Mortarmaster Cookie Monster, schmookie monster. Aren't you forgetting the Fudge Factor(tm) here? These elves work with the stuff day in and day out. They know fudge--and its subtle properties. These guys have more words for fudge than eskimos have for snow. You can't tell me they don't know how to harness its extraordinary offensive potential (say, as a hot, tar-like immoblizing syrup or as a blinding firehose- diarhea-style power wash).

As has been stated, the cookie monster has no digestive tract--or at least no access to it, since his mouth appears to be a folding black felt circle. I can just see those little, highly organized elves cradling a hose in the tallest knot of their tree and yelling in Munchkin(tm)-like fashion, "Open wide, cookie punk! Fudge this!" He's not bright, so he opens up. Fudge hits solid felt. And like wind in a sail, CM is blow back to Sesame Street(tm) faster than you can say, "Snuffle-freakin'-upagus(tm)!" It's a no-win for CM. How 'bout little Girl Scout(tm) and Brownie(tm) child laborers baking their delectable, highly addictive cookies versus the Keebler elves in an all out production war--cookie vs. cookie, Thin Mint(tm) vs. Grasshopper(tm). Now that's a match!

- Jocoserious Jim given: Cookie Monster: a monster that collects and processes cookies. Cookie: an object used by internet companies to moniter web users' habits. then: Cookie Monster = an entity that profits off of information based on web users. also: Cookie Monster is targeting ALL of the cookies in his current market. therefore: Cookie Monster is a monopoly. given: The US government will "break up" any monopoly it finds. therefore: The US government will "break up" Cookie Monster and the elves will win. QED.

- Albatross (the last Chinese shoe salesman) Grrrr. those accursed Keebler Elves. You know, I grew up in a rather observant Jewish family, and we followed every obscure rule we could think of about what you can and can't eat. The rules are simple -- if it tastes good, it isn't kosher. I had to watch those stupid cartoons for Count Chocula, and KFC, and McDonalds, and yes, Keebler Elves, all advertising their gloriously treyf foods, and I couldn't eat them while all my friends could. On the other hand, Jewish law does not ban watching food being eaten on TV -- it encourages it, so you can feel even more jealous. So I got to watch Cookie Monster. I hate those Keebler Elves, and if they disappear, everyone else will have to suffer what I did. Oh, and Cookie Monster does follow a special Jewish dietary law just for him - - he can't eat Elmo, so his merchandise will continue to spread and consume the entire Earth.

- Le Schmuck I don't understand this match. The Keebler Elves are always giving out samples of their products. How is the Cookie Monster any different? Since all completed cookies are magically transported to the stores, all the elves have on hand is samples. Unless the Cookie Monster suddenly goes after cookie ingredients, there just isn't a contest here. Cookie Monster gets his fill of samples, walks away happy. The elves go back to work. Unless, of course, Cookie Monster decides to force the elves to make cookies just for him, and he becomes a permanent resident with elves constantly feeding him cookies, which would cause a shortage of Keebler cookies everywhere. In that case, the elves don't have a prayer. They just aren't mean enough. Unless, of course, the elves have hired some of Santa Claus's out-of-work elves , who are just waiting for the opportunity for revenge against anyone bigger than they are, in which case the Cookie Monster doesn't have a prayer. In the end, I vote for Prof. Plum in the library with the candlestick.

- Corfy In my humble opinion, the Cookie Monster has it in an obvious landslide, but let's observe one simple fact that further demolishes the Keebler Elves' hope of success. Cookie Monster has had several challenges in the past. The one of greatest note is when he invaded the Martha Stewart show. As anyone who has seen this particular episode knows, it is the funniest episode of Martha Stewart ever filmed. Granted, that isn't saying much, but it is still worth mentioning. If the great Cookie Monster can come up against Martha Stewart and succeed in decimating her kitchen, the Keebler Elves haven't got a chance.

- Ilsoap Ah, cookies. There's nothing quite like them. The tang of gingersnaps the hearty texture of oatmeal raisin cookies the nostalgic crisp smoothness of my great-grandmother's butter cookie recipe even the sturdy earnestness of Girl Scout Thin Mints--and if I have to explain fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies to you, I will pray for your poor, deprived soul.

Koekies. A gift from above, no?

Well, usually . when they aren't stale macaroons foisted on you and loaded with coconut--coconut, yuck!--or store-bought Pepperidge Farm Sausalitos, dry and crumbly and with macadamias that can easily chip a tooth or get lodged in a molar. And Pecan Sandies? Army K rations are easy living compared with those rocks with embedded nuts. Badly made cookies are nothing but cruel teases . and you can't help yourself! They're still cookies! You'll munch through them grimly, your jaw muscles aching with each chew. By the time you're done with a particularly bad batch, you could probably chew through anything just to get a toll-house cookie still warm from the oven.

That's exactly what the Cookie Monster will do. A few feet of bark and wood will be nothing to him. Large cooking implements, fudge crocks, whole ovens--slight impediments. If the Keebler Elves are wise, they'll harness themselves into their emergency evacuation paragliders (to wit, a few butterflies perched on an outlying branch) and leave the battlefield to The Mouth That Gorged.

- Call me Shane You know, I just stopped back by the WWWF Towers for a quiet, well deserved shooting spree -- sort of the obligitory disgruntled former employee sort of thing -- and I came upon this match. You people are SO in need of my continued enlightenment. Brian, I know you are like unto God there in the Towers, but your fortified position thesis just does not apply here. Look, I speak from authority, I truly know my stuff in kindergarden, I majored in Cookie Monster. The Keebler fortress might hold against hordes of elementary school children, even against the occaisonal attack of Newman-style mailmen, but the CM (cookieus majoris) is no mere soldier of semi-sweet he is rather a force of nature. Even the best fortresses succumb to hurricane, earthquake, and tsunami. To use a rhetorical comparison, I myself had built an impenetrable fortress of blackmail, henchmen, and bribery within the WWWF which, I thought, would assure my continued status regardless of my lackluster commentary, sloth, and general surliness. Enter one Brian Wright, and my position crumbles, allowing my greedy co-commentators to flood into the breach and steal my office supplies from my very desk. I certainly feel a similar result is in store for the Ernie the cookie elf. And Shane, gimme back my goddam stapler.

- Jeff Barton Anyone that has grown up with Sesame Street(tm) knows that there is one factor which the elves have no hope of over coming. MILLIONS OF HYPER-ACTIVE CHILDREN (no tm) Since Cookie Monster is a well known officer in the SS military(tm) hundreds of thousands of elementary school children will follow his command blinded by loyalty and the promise of suggary snacks(tm). Though the elves will attempt to bribe their way past the under-4' hoard, the children will be too young to comprehend what's being presented plus they will be distracted by the surrounding treats. Cookie Monster, leading his troops, will have the keebler elf tree demolished in under 30 sec. Hyped up on sugar and ritlin. the army of children will then amasse for the assault on the formitable Nabisco (tm) fortress! to be continued.

- Hunt-Master This opportunity to use CM as a marketing technique to reach children, who just happen to love cookies, would overwhelm their greedy little chlorestoral bloated hearts. It is my belief that the elves invited CM to their "factory" in an elaborate scheme to take advantage of his fame in the cookie market and use him as their new spokes model targeting children.

- The Sleep Deprived Accountant

You are closer to the truth than you realize. -- Eds. Commercial Opens. Elves are running back and forth, making themselves busy. Some are busy baking large, gooey blue cookies while others stuff these cookies into packages labeled "Soylent Blue." Elmer strides in front of the camera with one of the cookies. He presents the cookie and proceeds to briefly but passionately describe the care and craft that goes into the creation of each and every cookie. Then something midly amusing happens for comic relief. Fast Eddie cuts across the screen, trips, and breaks his arm. The other elves all laugh. save Elmer, who looks on in bemusement. As the commercial draws to a close, a jingle is heard in the backround "oh you never would believe where those Keebler Cookies come from." Commercial ends.

- Dan Quayle Let's face it, the Keebler elves have been preparing for this day for years. There have to be "ENEMY NUMBER ONE" posters all over the tree house with plan "COOKIE-1" through "COOKIE-94B" in a file cabinet near all lookout posts. If you're dust bunnies, you watch constantly for the Dirt Devil, if you're the Keeblers, you watch for CM. The first part of every plan has to be air support. No war has been won in the last century without air support. Who's going to show up to lend a hand in minimal time with maximum punch? Santa. That's who. You think the Keebler and North Pole elves don't keep in touch? Pshaw. The Keeblers have been supporting the Xmas rush for decades. Santa can get there in nanoseconds, just like every other home on earth. Throw in some shoemaker elves, the elf from the new Lord of the Rings movie and all those classical merrimakers from lore and you've got one hell of a supporting ground army. With pixie magic and gay pride, the elves WILL take the day.

- Tirdun This match is all Cookie Monster, which is sad because it's just another example of the manipulation of the mentally deficient for the purpose of violent revenge. You see, I think it's a little too coincidental that this big blue monster just happened to be making his way past the Keebler tree. No, I think CM was manipulated into this by the Smurfs TM who are still pretty smurfed off about that smurfberry crop they lost to fudge waste-product effluents from that smurfing Keebler Eurotree TM just upstream. Hopefully Cookie Monster will control his RAGE TM and bloodlust when he realizes that the Keebler wares are just sawdust cakes with tasty toppings. After all, there aren't many cookie breaks in maximum security.

- Mr. Silverback- Exits stage right after singing a chorus of "I Ran Over All The Smurfs" The argument of the Keebler Treehouse being any form of defense against Cookie Monster is so phenomenally feeble, it must have been brought to us by the letter 'L' -- great for making such words as Lame, Laughable and Loser. I mean, when has the non-cookie-ness of anything ever kept Cookie Monster from crumbling it to bite-sized pieces with delightful munchiness? Sure, cookies are the mainstay of his diet, but he'll devour just about anything - letters, plates, doors, plumbing - anything. The scale of the windows, openings or vents in the Treehouse is only relevant as far as trying to calculate just how much Creamy Elfin Filling is going to squirt out as the Googly Eyed One munches his way through the uncommonly good erstwhile Fortress of Fudge.

- czarofhappiness If the Keebler Elves are smart, they'll have bailed out already. There is nothing going to stop the Cookie Monster.

Need I remind you, people, this is a Muppet who, when taken to the museum, had to be constantly reminded not to eat the Mummy. And make no mistake about it, Cookie Monster is indeed a monster. Several less fortunate muppets starve in the streets because of his voracious appetite. Look into his eyes, his wild eyes, pointing in opposite directions, he's crazy. He's thirty times the size of his opponents. He's berserk. He's unstoppable. Now I ask you, what the hell are they going to keep him out? Shoot him? You can't kill a Muppet. Cannonballs? Useless. Keep him out with a strong barricade? He'll eat through the tree if he has to. He'll eat through the tree even if he doesn't have to. He'll probably eat most of the elves. Magic? That might work well for baking experimental new cookies, but for moving something thirty times your size? Nuh uh. The elves better pack fast, because their tree is going bye-bye in a massive "OM NOM NOM NOM."

- Infraggable Krunk Let's get the facts straight. A friend of mine once argued with me as to the true race of the Keebler "elves". She, being an avid reader of many fantasy fiction novels, cited that elves are not short, squat, creatures living inside of trees. They live in forests, true, but not IN trees. They are tall slender beings, who are graceful and beautiful. Last time I looked, the Keebler boys weren't sporting any signs of women in that tree. So, what do we have?

Closest guess is that they are dwarves since they wear shoes and live as a bunch, and hobbits (my second most likely guess) don't. But they aren't warlike, so if they are dwarves, they aren't your common variety. They make cookies, and live without women. They sound very similar to those monks who grow pecans, I don't remember the exact Saint that their order is. So, we have monkish dwarves, who haven't seen women since they began baking, who only feature children in their commercials, and after that one Gr"asshopper" cookie commercial incident, are being watched with close scrutiny, with dwarvish blood running in their veins, being attacked by their equivalent of Smaug. Rage is all over these little guys. Now, the cookie monster, is not overly intelligent, he has no armor, and he has huge googly eyes that are bleached white with little black dots, which only scream to be blinded in combat. They couldn't be better targets. The Keebler faction also has strength in numbers, and it's home court advantage too. We know they have the tree rigged from some of their previous commercials, and Cookie Monster HAS NO TEETH! How can he win? Once he's trapped, what can he possibly do? Maybe if his incessant chanting of "Cookie" were to call assistance from the underworld, you know, the bad part of Sesame street, where the ghetto monsters live, or if his chanting causes their little cookie making heads to pop, he might succeed, but otherwise, he doesn't stand a chance.

- Pareeha I have personally seen CM insert five (yes five) cookies into his gaping maw and reduce them to crumbs in a matter of seconds. Keep in mind that these are not the bite-sized cookies of the supermarket shelf but the good old fashioned Toll House homemade melt in your mouth not in your hand cookies that Sesame Street forced some poor defenseless grandmother to bake. The elves, on the other hand, deal exclusively with the much smaller imitations of cookies. The Keebler Cookies measure only three quarters of an inch in diameter. In less specific terms these cookies can be referred to as "not very big." We routinely see the elves rolling these cookies along the ground from production to packaging. I do not bring this up to comment on the elves poor health practices (do they ever wash the floor?) but to remind the viewer that the cookies are bigger than the elves. Doing some simple math we can see that three bite sized cookies are no greater than one of CM's usual treats. Therefore, we can conclude that at least three elves are equivalent to a single cookie. CM can concievably reduce 15 elves into Keebler Crumbs with a single "nhamm, nhamm, nhamm." As for the supposed advantages that the elves hold: I doubt that it would take CM more than four bites to devour the Keebler Bonsai Tree Fort. Even less if Ma Keebler left a fresh batch on the kitchen table.

- Greg "Not Linda" Tripp If the Elves can hold off his berserk assault for more than ten minutes, they're safe. After a short amount of time, Cookie Monster will be too tired to move.

Cookie Monster. is fat. There's just no way around it, he's a great big tub of goo. As you can clearly see, a lifetime of constant snacking has left him with quite a sizable gut. There's no doubt that the other monsters like Grover or Telly, who's built like a Mack truck under that fur, are laughing at him behind his back. Unless CM's been hitting the Stairmaster super-hard for the past few months, there is no way he's going to be able to keep up the attack for long. Imagine a baby hippo attacking an armored tank and you've got the idea. All the Elves have to do is defend themselves with projectiles and Elfin magic, and the Cookie Monster will collapse, gasping for breath, unable to move, and ready to be magicked to the next county.

- My name is Kenny Bah! Much like the neighbor's Chihuahua, the Keebler tree is all bark and no bite.

- Mark Wentz I may be mistaken here, but are the keebler elves not all homosexuals? Just from the way they dress and the fact that they are a bunch of guys who live together and bake cookies into which they pack fudge, that is what I figured. Now let's talk about RAGE. Can you think of anyone with more rage potential than a bunch of tiny gay men? I bet they got beaten up all the time in high school. Plus, they doubtless all want to impress each other, and so they probably spend all their time working out.

Angry gay elves by however long it takes for cookie monster to get to the tree plus six seconds.

- Inspectah Mac Sorry, Brian, but the one smoking the cookie crack would be you, and you're smoking it out of the industrial-sized tube. The Keebler Elves make cookies. Cookie Monster eats cookies. It's that simple (with all due apologies to Ross Perot .) And thanks to Cookie Monster's bulimia (it's not that he isn't swallowing the cookies he eats that makes all those crumbs fall out of his mouth, but rather that he purges just as fast as he binges,) he'll be able to go through the elves' entire production run in no time. Unfortunely for Cookie Monster, it will be a pyrrhic victory. Professor Elf's areas of knowledge are "Algebra, Calculus, Nuclear Physics, the thermodynamics of dough, fudge viscosity, and the kinetics of cracker crunchiness," so once he figures out that defeat is inevitable, he'll have Ernie breaking out the elves' stores of plutonium-laced dough, and bake the H-cookie. And as soon as Cookie Monster chomps down on that tasty bit of mega-high explosive, his head will vanish in a mushroom cloud of nuclear fury that is brought to us by the letters MC and the number 2.

- Bowie Hawkins There is no doubt that Cookie Monster will win this match. In the Sesame Street Christmas Special, the Cookie Monster tries to send Santa a message to ask for the cookies he wants. However, he never manages to send the message as, in succession, he eats his pencil and paper, his typewriter (including the ribbon) and, finally, the phone. All of this happened because he got so worked up anticipating the cookies that he confused these objects as various delicious items. Eventually, he went on a bender and ate Gordan and Susan's Christmas Tree with its decorations. I don't think I need to elaborate further. That entire tree is the appetizer. Plus, it makes great roughage. That's going to be one strange Muppet turd though. Should make an interesting episode on waste removal.

- Paul "C is for Crap" G. In order to maintain objectivity I did browse the link to the Elve's bios, I was not impressed. 1) They all appear to be related, often in more than one way. 2) They have goofy, slack jawed expressions (and beards). 3) They are prepared for an attack and drill frequently. In conclusion: These are paranoid gun-obbsessed hill billies, probably expecting the Red Chinese to tunnel in any minute and members of Aryan Nation to boot. This organization, arsenal and fanatacism will be an inital advantage in the conflict but within moments the FBI, ATF and the Black Helicopters (TM) will descend upon the scene and shoot them all.

one side MAKES cookies, the other side EATS cookies. that's like pitting Godzilla against the Tokyo Department of Public Works.


Wings

Rosita originally had wings attached to her arms, akin to those of another cave-dwelling creature, the fruit bat. Ώ]

Members of Rosita's family have exhibited the ability to fly, as seen in Episode 3341 where Rosita practices some flying of her own, but has trouble with making landings. In 2017, performer Carmen Osbahr explained that "She couldn't fly but she was able to glide like a flying squirrel. But mainly the big arms with wings were [designed] because she [used] to give very big hugs and to play the guitar." Ε ]

Her designer Ed Christie went into detail on the puppet's construction in the same social media post:

“ I designed Rosita with wings. Totally my invention. She was described to me as a "monster from the caves". I took it upon myself to reference a bat. and she was a monster that evolved similarly. I also thought (and hoped) that it would have been characterized as a sign of female empowerment. a way for the character to do things the other monsters didn't. It was a sort of superpower built into her species.

Unfortunately, the writers didn't pick up on that. Add to that, it was a great solution to hiding the performers arms. kind of like the way the performer is hidden under Cookie Monster's sack shape. Another thought was that she would do great dance movements - like if she wanted to teach "flamenco". The wings were cut from the fur fabric in such a way to form pleats. They moved beautifully.

One year, while I was no longer in charge of running SS for Henson, she had no wings. I was really pissed off and if I had the opportunity, would have had a meeting or two to defend their existence. I was so determined to make her different than the other monsters. Aggravating! But Carmen continues to do amazing work with her and it's such a joy stumbling across a Rosita performance. Ε] ”

Beginning with Season 35, Rosita was rebuilt and no longer had wings. Years later, Osbahr revealed that the decision to remove Rosita's wings had never been communicated with her:

“ The first day of Season. I don't remember which one she just didn't have them. It shocked me. It was Production at Sesame Workshop. What they told me was that the people in Merchandise took that decision.

The interesting thing was Rosita doesn't have a lot of merchandise.

I really like the wings. It made her look like a different Monster. Like 20 years ago they wrote a very funny script. Prairie was helping Rosita with her flying and landing. At the end of the show Prairie was wearing a helmet because no matter what Rosita keep landing on her head. Ε] ”

In a 2011 interview with ToughPigs.com, Rosita offers an explanation for the loss of her wings: she claims that her family flew from their cave (near Snuffy's) during a storm, like a flying squirrel, and she lost her wings. Α]

By 2021, Rosita's wings were reinstated, as first seen in web videos produced for Sesame Workshop's "Coming Together" initiative. Ζ ]

Hunger Games Recipe: District 4 Bread

Note: Find nori at specialty stores and in the Asian foods aisle at Whole Foods.

4 drops of green food coloring

1 1/2 eetlepels groente -olie

3-4 tablespoons nori seaweed, blended to a powder

2 1/2 cups flour (half whole wheat and half white flour)

1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the sugar, yeast, food coloring and warm water. Add the oil, egg, salt, nori and 1 cup flour. Continue stirring, adding flour as you go, until you form a soft dough. Put the dough onto a floured surface and knead it, adding flour as you go, until the dough is soft and pliable. Place the dough into a greased bowl and let it rise to double the size, about 40 minutes.

2. Punch the dough down and form into fish shapes. Use kitchen shears to cut definition into fish fins, gills and scales. Brush beaten egg over the tops of the fish to add extra shine. Sprinkle with salt, if desired. Let them rise for another 25 minutes.

3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bake rolls for 10-12 minutes, or until the bread is a lovely golden brown — or greenish-golden brown.

Space out snacks with meals

First, know that it’s normal for kids to be snacking more at home. (Yes, still.) They may be self-soothing with food, which is not, in and of itself, an unhealthy thing to do. My 7-year-old daughter likes to eat M&Ms while she watches a show or reads graphic novels for her afternoon “quiet time,” and I love the comfort and pleasure she gets from this routine. Children may also be “more in tune with their hunger at home, without all the distractions and short meal breaks in the typical school day,” said Elizabeth Davenport, a dietitian in Alexandria, Va., the co-author of the blog Sunnyside Up Nutrition, about feeding families.

You only need to intervene if your child’s snacking has turned into the kind of all-day grazing pattern that replaces regular meals at the table. “We want kids feeling some gentle hunger before eating because this helps them self-regulate,” said Megan McNamee, a dietitian in Scottsdale, Ariz., and co-founder of Feeding Littles, a company that offers online courses for feeding babies and toddlers. “With grazing, they have this baseline level of not really hungry but not really full all day long, and can lose their hunger to eat with the family and try new foods. Plus food just tastes better when you’re hungry.”

For this reason, Davenport and McNamee agree that it’s more important to focus on when and where kids snack than what they snack on. You should never expect a child to go more than three or four hours without eating, and toddlers may need to eat every two hours, so plan to serve meals and snacks accordingly. “Think of this as a flexible routine, rather than a rigid schedule,” McNamee said. With older children, it can help to write out the schedule or show them on the clock when meals and snacks happen. With toddlers, talk in terms of activities: Eat breakfast, play outside, have snack, read books, have lunch.

Of course, kids may protest as you transition away from grazing, which is one reason not to shift both their eating schedule and food choices simultaneously. “Remember that structure doesn’t mean restriction,” Davenport said.

Let children know that they can eat as much as they want when a snack or meal is happening, and don’t balk at seconds or thirds. Kids snack the most in homes where parents were more restrictive about it, according to an analysis of 47 studies about food parenting practices published between 1980 and 2017. Offer their favorite foods alongside other foods that you would like them to eat, but don’t fuss about which they eat first or make them finish their fruit in order to earn the cookie.

“Kids are just like adults they want what they can’t have,” explained Jill Castle, a dietitian and co-author of “Fearless Feeding.”

“Your goal is to raise kids who can walk past the M&M jar and sometimes say, ‘nah, not into it today.’ And sometimes say, ‘yup, today I want some!’ And not be triggered by either response.”

As kids get used to eating on a schedule, you can offer choices, Davenport said, like “would you like peanut butter and apples or cookies and milk?” Don’t stress if they pick the same snack every day. It’s normal for kids to go through phases of intensely loving certain foods they will habituate and be ready to try something new in a few weeks. “Parents put so much pressure on themselves to serve something different for every single meal, and you just don’t have to do that,” Davenport said.

‘Hunger Games’ sequel to catch fire in box-office debut

The saga of Katniss Everdeen will bring the masses into its arena this weekend as “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” arrives in theaters, easily unseating “Thor: The Dark World” for the top box-office spot.

Lionsgate’s “Hunger Games” sequel, which will open in 4,100 theaters starting with Thursday night showings, is expected to take in as much as $180 million through Sunday, according to people who have seen pre-release audience surveys. Lower estimates for the Jennifer Lawrence-starring movie put it at between $150 million and $170 million.

The sci-fi action film, which had a budget of about $130 million and was fully financed by Lionsgate, is expected to exceed the $152-million opening weekend of the first “Hunger Games” and might even beat the $174 million made by “Iron Man 3,” the biggest opener of 2013 and the second-highest opening of all time. “The Avengers” opened last year with an all-time best of $207 million.

Based on the post-apocalyptic young-adult novels by Suzanne Collins, the “Hunger Games” films portray a totalitarian society in which children are selected to fight to the death as entertainment.

In “Catching Fire,” protagonists Katniss Everdeen (Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) are caught up in the social unrest they helped spark after surviving the latest battle royal.

The film has received overwhelmingly positive reviews. It has generated a 95% “fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes, meaning the vast majority of critics liked it.

“Catching Fire” is drawing particularly intense interest among young women, though the broadly appealing film is also tracking well with young men.

The non-3-D film is also expected to perform better overseas than its predecessor, which made $283 million in its full run outside the U.S., far below its $408-million domestic gross.

For the sequel, the studio brought on Francis Lawrence to direct after “Hunger Games” director Gary Ross abruptly left the franchise, citing unrealistic time constraints.

The “Hunger Games” will break the final book of the trilogy, “Mockingjay,” into two parts. One will be released in 2014 and the other in 2015.

Disney’s “Delivery Man,” the only other movie opening in wide release this weekend, is expected to gross $12 million to $14 million, generally targeting the 25-and-older crowd. With a budget of $22 million, the comedy stars Vince Vaughn as an underachiever who discovers he’s fathered hundreds of children by donating to a fertility clinic.

What is unclear is which movie will come in second place this weekend, as the strong “Best Man Holiday” enters its second week and “Thor: The Dark World” rumbles into its third. “Hunger Games” will cut into “Thor’s” audience more than it will affect “Best Man Holiday,” meaning the latter could end up the No. 2 movie at the box office.

Last week, “Thor” fell 57% from its opening of nearly $86 million. If it falls by a similar percentage this weekend, the superhero action movie would bring in $15 million, adding to the more-than $150 million it has made domestically. “Best Man Holiday,” entering its second weekend after an opening of $30 million, could bring in around $16 million.

Disney is also introducing its computer-animated musical “Frozen” in one location, the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood. “Philomena,” the Weinstein Co. drama starring Steve Coogan and Judi Dench, will open in four theaters.

The well-reviewed “Dallas Buyers Club,” meanwhile, will expand to about 600 screens and is expected to bring in about $5 million.
