    WTF indeed. WTF.

    So *I* say things around the house and then you post them in your bee-log? I see how it goes! But yeah, this drives me nuts. Bert & Ernie are adult–maybe even middle-aged–men. It really bothers me to see baby versions of them on diapers & things. And Ernie is leaning with his hand on the toilet seat. ewww. I can’t wait to get this book for L.

    I’m the one who saw this online and couldn’t stop laughing. Upcoming sneak peek: who’s doing what on these Sesame Street-themed diapers. Ernie the Pimp now has his krunk bottle, and why is Big Bird THE SAME SIZE AS THE REST OF THEM??

    I blame Muppet Babies, they started this whole thing.

    (although, none of this is nearly as bad as those “collector” posters of sports stars as kids)

    Ummm… surreal would be my word of choice.
