We're joining Cookie Monster in doing our part

We've been reading how Cookie Monster is trying to teach childroon about nutrition, by making cookies a "sometoome food," and fruit an "anytoome food."

We also want to do our part to help everyone get better nutrition. So we've been giving a lot of thought to the messoo we send when we talk aboo caaaandy. And we think maybe we should change our messoo, so we are part of the solutoo, not the probloo.

Therefore, we want to say to everyone, "Send all your caaaandy to us." That way you won't have all that sugoo in your diet, and instead you can eat broccoli. And brown rice. And skinless chicken breast. And we can... uh... dispose of all that sugoo-y caaaandy for your own good.

OK Bye

Dear Bears,

I love your blog, but I have one problem. I keep getting confused as to who is who (then again, my pet always says I'm bred for pretty, not for smart...). Do you think you could post a photo where I could actually take a good look at you, with your names underneith? That would be cool. I'd send you some candy, but my pet is pregnant and there is NO CHANCE she will let any candy leave this house without being eaten (by her of course, and she's not so good at sharing either!)

Thanks, bye

Hi Mieka,

That's a good idea. Maybe we can do a series of posts, with pictoos and something about us, so you can get to know each of us better.

Sounds like a lot of work, so maybe do it for a few of us, then have one big pictoo of the rest. Sometimes we get distracted on long term projects.

The pictoo we have now has, from left to right, Papito (red and blue poison-dart-frog Bear), Blinky (black Bear), Calliope (white Bear) and Noel "Snowflake" Chompsky (smaller white Bear in green sweater).

OK Bye

hey, see, you helped me already. I always thought the big black bear must be Stompy, cause it's big and takes centre stage, and Stompy does most of the taking. Yet all this time that was really Blinky, who knew? I don't want to take up too much time from your noble causes (nutrition advice and psychological counselling)... I'm sure one big group shot should do it. But if you want to post individual profiles and pictures, be my guest. Maybe you need to borrow Jim's 'Merican 'Spress card and get professional head shots done, you know, to have them for when you hit it big.

Yes, Stompy is a little self-conscious about it, but he doesn't fit in our Costa Rican Oxcart. So that's why he wasn't in that pictoo.

We like the idea of getting professionoo head shots. But Jim's been really good aboo hiding his 'Merican 'Spress Card, so we'll probabloo just put up some pictoos we've taken of oursoo.

OK Bye
