The Muppets Take Manhattan: The Grim Reality

I heard from a respected source that next to the xylophone-playing Cookie Monster was a pink bass-playing gorilla. (The eyes can only take in so much, right? Hence, the cropping.) The question is, what is Cookie Monster doing busking in the NYC subway system? I guess he's gotta pay for his cookies somehow. It's hard out there for a Muppet. . .

The Cookie Monster isn't a Muppet! He's a Sesame... Street.

i saw these guys last night playing at the L stop in Union Square. it was one of the most randomly delightful things i've ever seen. to give you an idea of the kind of music they were playing... it might've actually been the Xylopholks just in costume.
