A famous children's TV show star, as well as the former lead singer of the death metal band Cannibal Corpse
Despite being more known for the former, Cookie Monster was the original lead singer of the famed death metal band before they got signed. The main reason why Cookie Monster was kicked out of Cannibal Corpse was due to his addiction of the said baked goods in his name. Cookie Monster was caught sucking the dick of his fellow cast member on Sesame Street
for a bag of Chips Ahoy
. The rest of his band caught him in the act, and fired him subsequently.
Cookie Monster went through a downhill spiral, using all the money he made on TV (being now kicked out of Cannibal Corpse) to go to the local Mr. Fields and buy all their inventory. Cookie Monster lost the lease on his gorgeous condominium in Martha's Vineyard, divorced his wife (who at the time was the then-irresistible 90's babe Alicia Silverstone
), and was reduced to munching on his "sweets" in the back of his beaten-up 1972 Chevy
El Camino. But one day, in the summer of 2001, Cookie Monster admitted himself into a rehab center in Palo Alto
There he spent a long six years recovering from his habits of munching, grinding, snorting, and shooting up forms of his favorite baked good. At that time, the producers of Sesame Street hired a stunt double to take over Cookie's role on the show, but the double wasn't popular as he (the stunt double) said he enjoyed veggies as much as cookies. The real Cookie, though, did finally make it out of rehab (even after several fights with the personnel there--once at which resorting to being drugged up by employees after smuggling cookies into his room).
At long last, on August 21, 2007, the Cookie Monster was released from rehab and he was a changed man--sort of. He still only eats cookies, but at least he admits to not sucking a dick for one. The stunt double on Sesame Street continues to take Cookie's place so there's no production conflicts while the real Cookie Monster has recently recorded a guest appearance on a thrash metal track aptly named "Cookie Monster" with the band XTT (look it up on YouTube
) and has been doing session recording with other metal acts. Rumors have spread that Cookie Monster is also appearing on a duet with Serj Tankian
(vocalist of alt-metal band System of a Down
) on the latter's next solo album. Cookie Monster now lives a quiet life with his current girlfriend and famous British
in their quaint apartment in Leeds
, United Kingdom.
