Reporting from Sesame Street — In a recursive act of meta-ness, the popular children’s TV show, Sesame Street, reluctantly agreed to give directions to itself. The famous street struggled for years to talk to itself, assuming it already knew how to get to itself.

“We had no idea Sesame Street had such wildly cartoonish internal struggles,” said Children’s Television Workshop spokesperson Bethany Millbright. “The street always just kept to herself and didn’t say much of anything. I guess it’s so true, you know? You never know what someone is going through.”

Trouble started early this year when the famous street started demonstrating self-deprecating ideations about its self-worth. Many friends thought it was just a “phase the street was going through” and ignored its bizarre ramblings. However, this week, things turned a turn for what many believe is better.

“Everyone was concerned,” continued Ms. Millbright, “but then there was this breakthrough. You know, some epiphany. Like a huge weight was lifted off its shoulders. I mean, it’s a sign. It stood up proudly and announced, ‘I’m right here.’ So everyone here believes and is relieved that Sesame Street is on the right healing path now.”

According to psychologists, this repression of will and desire can lead to psychological problems if left unaddressed.
