Is me really a monster?

McSweeney’s has an infectiously funny article where Sesame Street’s Cookie Monster ‘searches deep within himself and asks: is me really a monster?’

Obviously struggling with his frequent out-of-control cookie binges, the Cookie Monster reflects on his own self-image.

How can they be so callous? Me know there something wrong with me, but who in Sesame Street doesn’t suffer from mental disease or psychological disorder? They don’t call the vampire with math fetish monster, and me pretty sure he undead and drinks blood. No one calls Grover monster, despite frequent delusional episodes and obsessive-compulsive tendencies.
