Puppets At a Funeral

Hello, everyone! Dave-El here and welcome to I'm So Glad My Suffering Amuses You, now with EXTRA baking soda!

In this post, I want to share something from Twitter I saw this morning.

Bucky Isotope@BuckyIsotope23 Mar
Cookie Monster delivering the eulogy at Bert's funeral. Head bowed low. Stillness. "Me want cookies," he sadly intones. "Me want cookies."
I just fell out laughing over this. I could see and hear Cookie Monster doing just that. And the mood is so effectively conveyed with a minimum of words. Good job!
But then my mind began to ponder....what if other characters from Sesame Street had to speak at Bert's funeral?  So, with apologies to Bucky Isotope, I would like to present...
Puppets At a Funeral
Elmo at Bert's funeral: "Elmo sad. Tee hee hee hee! Elmo also ticklish. But mosly Elmo sad."
Big Bird at Bert's funeral: "I think heaven is filled with lots & lots of bird seed. Which is bad for Bert. I don't think he liked bird seed."
The Count at Bert's funeral: "Blah! How many ways did we love Bert? I shall count them!
                                                                            Thank you!"
Oscar the Grouch at Bert's funeral: "Well, Bert's gone and...and I'm sad...sad that the rest of you aren't gone as well!"
And finally...
Ernie at Bert's funeral: "Bert? Bert? Get up,Bert! I found my rubber ducky! It was in the bathtub! Do hear me, Bert?"
And the scene ends as we fade out from....
Puppets At a Funeral!
Brought to by the letter E and the number 7.
Thanks again to Bucky Isotope for the inspiration. Your first tweet is still the best of the bunch.
