Happy National Ice Cream Month! Deal with it, Ernie

Posted on

For purely visual reasons, Ernie’s quest for the perfect chocolate, strawberry, peach, vanilla, banana, pistachio, peppermint, lemon, orange, and butterscotch ice cream cone is still one of my favorite Sesame Street skits, even though I don’t usually condone the mixing of fruit and dairy.

Still. stop whining, Ernie! You’re about to eat 10 scoops of ice cream that miraculously haven’t toppled to the floor. Mr. Bluman didn’t mess up your order at all. It’s not the world’s job to cater to your ridiculous whims. Time to embrace an alternate perspective, man. C’mon, don’t be a tool.

Whoa, what just happened? I blacked out. Time for ice cream.
