For's an any time thing.

Coming down on the cookie? How dare they....

My beloved blue, furry monster — who sang "C is for cookie, that's good enough for me" — is now advocating eating healthy. There's even a new song — "A Cookie Is a Sometimes Food," where Cookie Monster learns there are "anytime" foods and "sometimes" foods.

"Sacrilege!" I cried. "That's akin to Oscar the Grouch being nice and clean."

I would have to agree with Ms. Chelsea Carter on this one. I mean...No one thinks that Oscar being dirty makes kids think they don't have to bathe...does it???

And really...I think Cookie Monster has bigger problems then eating a lot of cookies. Ms Carter asked about these:
But will he still scarf his food? Yes, plus the occasional object, Truglio said.

But isn't that unhealthy? Her reply: He's still Cookie Monster.

I think scarfing of any food is a worse habit then eating a cookie everyday. I think ice cream every day is good for your health...I would probably say the same about cookies :)
