Sesame Street products should really, really, really not make me think of female internal anatomy.

I want to be clear that I love Sesame Street, but there are some things that just shouldn’t be commercialized.  And even if you are going to go there, then I have to seriously question some products.

Witness the Yip Yip Yip leggings. You remember these lovable aliens, right? Uh-huh, uh-huh. Yep, yep, yep. Uh-huh… Okay, so you decide to make leggings out of their furry little bodies. That could be cu–


And… oh– Oh, god. There’s nothing right here.

  1. Female anatomy did not come to mind when I first saw this, but probably because I was looking at a tiny thumbnail on a cell phone. Anatomy, however, did come to mind. It looked like one of those diagrams about different strains of muscles, each colored differently.

  2. My two year old was standing next to me when I saw the picture. She’s now repeatedly shouting “Fan blow!”

  3. I think they wouldn’t be so bad if people would just follow one simple rule: Do not wear leggings as pants.

      1. At this point I’m ready to settle for people not wearing *tights* as pants. People around here do that, and it is super awkward. I keep wanting to be like “I’m not sure how to tell you this… but those aren’t leggings. Everyone can see your entire thong.”

        I’m of a mind that clothes should conceal one’s junk; not just outline it for the entire world. I may be old-fashioned.

  4. LOL. Holy craptacular pattern check in the design department, Batman. The eyes. The eyes! They stare.

    I wonder if they go bloodshot once every 28 days…

  5. I think the leggings get worse when you view them from a distance. My first thought on seeing that picture was, “Well, a pair of leggings with blood depicted running down them is pretty tasteless, especially if someone interprets that as menstruation, but I don’t see what this has to do with Sesame Street.” *Then* I looked closer.
