This Sesame Street parody of HBO’s True Blood is cute – but I can’t figure out exactly why it is exists. I’m going to assume that there really aren’t many toddlers tuning in for the head twisting, blood spurting rapiness that is True Blood. At least, I really hope not (though I suppose I like the idea of Sesame Street feeding directly into the autobahn).

Now, I realize that there are probably parents who watch True Blood who also watch Sesame Street with their kids. But if I’m the kind of person who likes True Blood, I’m also the kind of person who it takes more to amuse than rhyming mud with “thud” and “spud.” It strikes me that this is a bit of a dud, but perhaps that’s just because I don’t often watch children’s programming. Are there parents who love it when they do stuff like this? – via
