Against Big Bird, The Gods Themselves Contend In Vain

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?

I never saw it, and am now feeling a bit left out! :-)

Thank you so much for sharing!
This is AWESOME. I have to resort to capital letters; that is how great this write-up is. I enormously enjoyed reading it. (Plus, you know how I feel about Good Guys. ~grin~)

I've just emailed the link to my dear friend the anthropologist with a kindergartner.

The very idea of Big Bird as Eternal Champion archetype, all by itself, made me grin so hard my face hurt. I really want to see this now!

God I loved that one. It was like my only important formative Sesame Street thing that lasted. I've inflicted at least parts of it on romantic partners over the years. So amusingly relevant to my interests... (and kind of telling, probably)
