Russell Brand on Katy Perry controversy: 'Today's Sesame Street will NOT be brought to you by the number 34 or the letter D'

Amid the continuing hubbub over his fiancé Katy Perry’s oh-so-scandalous, (sort of) boob-baring (and now relegated to YouTube) appearance on Sesame Street, the comedian tweeted a few hilarious missives to his soon-to-be wife. Starting with: “today’s Sesame Street will NOT be brought to you by the number 34 or the letter D.” Hehe. Wait just a minute now — did Brand just reveal that Perry wears a size 34D? Hmmm. He followed that up with this riff on the show’s theme song: “Can you tell me how to get, how to get to Sex-with-me Street?” You gotta love that he’s having fun with this. And all right, I’ll admit, it’s kind of fifth-grade humor, but we’re talking about Sesame Street here, so that’s probably more than warranted.

The only thing I could think after reading those two jokes from Brand is…I want more! And that’s not something I say very often about comedians — especially of the Russell Brand variety. So Bravo. Funny stuff. Russell Brand might just have a new follower on his Twitter feed.
