Big Bird and Snuffleupagus are a bunch of sarcastic jerks

February 27, 2013

The above is the new song that Zachary is obsessed with. As you will see in the video, it is Elmo’s Song and it starts with Elmo calling over Big Bird and Snuffleupagus (yes, I had to look up the spelling) to tell them about the new song he wrote. Here is how the scene goes:

SNUFFLE: Well, what have you done Elmo.

ELMO: Elmo wrote his own song.

BIG BIRD: Really? What’s it called?

ELMO: Elmo’s Song.

BIG BIRD: Clever title.

SNUFFLE: Wish I’d thought of that.

Elmo then starts playing the song for them:

This is the song
La la la la
Elmo’s song.
La la la la,
La la la la,
Elmo’s song.

SNUFFLE: Oh, wow.

BIG BIRD: To think, he wrote this alone.

I know this is Sesame Street so they are probably being genuine but don’t these statements sound a bit sarcastic. Try watching the video and you will agree with me that Big Bird and  Snuffleupagus are being jerks to Elmo. Or, maybe I think they sound like jerks because I have heard this song eighty times in the last three days.
