Cookie monster holds cookie ransom, demands cookies for kids

In an amusing development in Germany earlier this month, the Leibniz cookie statue went missing from the corporate headquarters of Bahlsen, which manufactures Leibniz cookies in Hanover. An extortion letter was duly sent to local newspaper Der Spiegel next, with a demand for milk chocolate cookies to be donated to a children’s hospital, or risk having the cookie statue dumped in the trash, not unlike Oscar the Grouch.

The note came with a picture of a guy in a Cookie Monster mascot suit giving the thumbs-up while biting into the square cookie emblem. Understandably, the hospital spokesperson wasn’t exactly thrilled for the institution to be linked to the criminal act. We wonder what the kids are thinking, though.
