Charlie in Nyack writes of my suggestion that CM is an epicurean:
My God, Jonah, how could you possibly imply that Cookie Monster would reject the notion of an afterlife? Granted, it’s tough to imagine a more pathologically hedonistic character (oh, I dunno, maybe Pepe LePew?), but in your heart of hearts, you know that those googly-eyes of his are filled with visions of a chocolate chip-strewn heaven.
