Too blue to go the way of Betty White?

It worked for Betty White. But does that mean it will work for a fuzzy, carb addict with a tendency to misuse parts of speech? A Facebook campaign is already 11,000 members strong to get Cookie Monster a hosting gig on Saturday Night Live.

We’ve known for decades that the C. Monster’s got chops. But can he does he have what it takes to get through an entire evening of sketch comedy?

In his video, he’s got fake news and a short and sweet monologue. His best four minutes come at the piano as Cookie Ga Ga. He’s not wearing a meat dress, like the singer who influenced him, but he is draped with a type of food, three guesses which kind. (That’s right, Cooooo-Kiiiiiiiiie.)

You can watch the video, which Sesame Street has posted on its YouTube channel (reposted below). If you like, then “like,” over at the FB page Cookie Monster should host Saturday Night Live.
