"Sesame Street" To Further Indoctrinate Kids With Numerism

I've always said that the Children's Television Workshop is deep in the pocket of Big Digit. It should be pretty obvious, what with every single "Sesame Street" episode being sponsored by a number, and their casting of a blatant arithmomaniac in a recurring role.

But now, this "educational" "television" "show" is going well beyond filling our childrens' heads with numbers, colors, and fly-in-soup anecdotes. They are going to add math, science, and engineering indoctrination to their televisual brainwashing curriculum.

What this is, as any fool can plainly see, is yet another attempt by the answerists and science-pushers to force their one-right-answer hegemony on innocent children before they're even old enough to spell "a-c-a-d-e-m-i-c f-r-e-e-d-o-m."

(Which, in a truly free school system, they could spell "a-k-y-d-u-p-i-c f-9-r-;-*-*-o-m" and be correct, but I digress!)

Well I, for one, will stop watching. This is my protest, and I urge my fellow Math Skeptics to do the same. If this doesn't work, we'll have to target their sponsors. I'm sure the Letter B would drop their sponsorship pretty quickly if we threatened a boycott. Or, I should say, an _oycott!
