To be politically correct, the Muppet character Cookie Monster had been replaced last year by the Veggie Monster.  Somehow, I don't find the idea of a Veggie Monster puppet as amusing or appealing.  Another cultural icon killed off so Big Brother can further control our perceptions and choices.

Bye Cookie Monster!
Pointlessly martyred by the
Political left.
