At last, a revelation

After some thirty years of watching "Sesame Street" on and off (on a lot when I was a kid, off for a long time, then on again now that my daughters watch it), I finally figured out something:

The difference between a monster and a grouch is that monsters have noses and grouches don't.

Elmo, Telly, Harry, et. al. have those egg-shaped noses (like Bert), while Oscar does not. The problem, of course, is that Cookie Monster has no nose either. And if he's not a monster, who is?

He has no neck either, by the way. Maybe he's half-grouch.

Okay, so if it has fur, no nose, and bushy eyebrows, it's a grouch. If it has fur, and either a nose or sticky-up googly eyes (or both), it's a monster.

Maybe I have to start over.
