I read this hilarious blog claiming that Sesame Street has been putting subliminal messages into kids since 1969. It blamed Cookie Monster for the obesity epidemic, as if that had anything to do with it. It blamed Burt and Ernie for the widespread growth of gay marriage (they pointed out a rainbow-stripes shirt that Ernie wears), and said that the order the letters are taught is a subliminal message to indoctrinate children. Some theories about the Illuminati are reasonable; this one was not. All those paranoid people, I don’t even know what to say to them.
