Sesame Street Insanity

Memories of the craziest episode of Sesame Street ever, wherein they weigh a person’s soul.

The demon’s question is, “Where does today meet yesterday?” You’d think that after four fucking thousand years the kid would have randomly guessed “at midnight” or “at the Motion Picture Association of America.” Big Bird and Snuffy finally guess “in a museum,” and after 4,000 years of bodiless exile, Sahu is deemed worthy to proceed to the weighing of his soul. Big Bird and Snuffy go with him to stand in the Hall of Two Truths at the gate to the afterlife. The gigantic foam balls on these guys! Sure, Elmo loves you, but when’s the last time Elmo held anyone’s hand on the threshold of eternal night?
