The “Sesame Street” gang (not to be confused with the Gang of Four) has cut a deal that will eventually see a Chinese version of the show broadcast across the country, targeting the nation’s estimated 87 million children. Let a hundred flowers bloom.
Now, my first instinct was to make a joke about Big Bird hanging in a Chinese butcher shop window, or maybe something about Oscar the Grouch being sent to a reeducation camp for subversive thought. But instead, I’ll take the high road by avoiding stereotypes.
Damn it! You’re not making this easy, China. (THR)
