It's kinda like American Idol, but only if you sing my posts out loud.

The best part of this is the mere concept of there being a Sesame Street in *any* real town. How uncomfortable would the conversation be where you give out your new address to your friends and relatives? How about the *fifth* time you give it out?

"The new address is 132 Sesame Street"
"It's what street?"
"Sesame Street"
"You're fucking kidding me right?"
(exasperated sigh) "Look, I'm tired of hearing about it. The worst part is that a couple of crack dealers just got busted right down the block from me, so it's not like I have to dodge an inquisitive Elmo or a huge yellow bird every time I walk out my door in the morning."

I mean, how do you get stuff sent to your house without the vendor thinking it's a prank call? Even worse, what about ordering pizza??

And, just like this story, you know *any* kind of minor happening is going to make the news, simply because of the name of your street. "Even Oscar Not Happy About Litter Problem on Sesame Street". Hell, why not be an entrepeneur and open up a corner deli there and name it "Hooper's"?

But if you were travelling to that guy's house, and you needed to ask for directions, you could find someone and ask, "Can you tell me how to get, how to get to Sesame Street?" :)
