Cookie Monster auditions to host Saturday Night Live

Sesame Street is launching an Internet campaign on Facebook to get Cookie Monster chosen to host "Saturday Night Live." The campaign already has over 56,000 Facebook fans and almost 290,000 views on YouTube. Check out the video below:

So, are you pro or con on the puppet host? If the Internet can get Betty White to host, why not? I'd be curious to see if the Muppets would be willing to work a little blue (no Cookie Monster-related pun intended) to blend in with the SNL sensibility or if it would have to be a relatively tame episode.

My top three personal highlights:

  • Monologue: "Blah blah blah, cookie joke cookie joke cookie joke..."
  • The Lady Gaga impression (Cookie Face!)
  • Best of all, Cookie Monster doing air quotes when talking about Facebook "friends"
