Charleston's "Let Them Eat Cookies" promotion was a success, and we have the pictures to prove it.
The RiverDogs held the promotion to protest Sesame Street's decision to cut back on Cookie Monste's cookie intake. The show figured Cookie was setting a bad example for today's overeating kids.
Charleston thought Cookie should be allowed to do what he does best – eat cookies. After all, the "C" doesn’t stand for Celery Monster.
The picketing (photo) was well received, and the fans went wild for the cookie eating contest. But putting kids in those inflatable sumo wrestling costumes and having them chase a cookie around the field was pure genius.
MinorLeagueDugout.com is glad teams like Charleston are out there to poke fun at the politically correct.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I have a date with Mrs. Fields.
