Taken that I have accepted the challenge from little brother, I will concede to his rules.

To answer the question that RAP poses in his constructive, I contend that Big Bird is clearly better than Cookie Monster.

Also OBSERVE that I need not prove one character to be superior than Cookie Monster, but I simply need to prove that cookie monster is not "the bomb"

The bomb should, from hereon, be defined as: "A phrase, which much like Courtney Love, was only popular during the early nineties. At the time, it meant "exceptionally cool"[1]
extremely: "Being in or attaining the greatest or highest degree"[2]
cool: "In a casual manner; nonchalant"[3]

So far, RAP hasn't given us any reason as to why we affirm, thus we default negative in the round.

BUT! If that's not enough, I will address the solitary statement he proposed.

Contention 1: Big Bird is a f*cking baller.
When you crunch the numbers and look at the suit, Big Bird stands around 6' 10". Now, if you can imagine, pissing anyone off who is that big is NOT a good idea. Because Big Bird, or B-Dawg as they called him when he was growing up in the hard town of LA, is so massive, he is clearly the bomb, because if you think he isn't, he'll whoop some @ss. Also, anyone who can lynch a n***a, clean up the mean streets of LA the way only a big yellow vigilante can, buy more ammo, have lunch, save children from burning orphanages, help old ladies across the street, teach a JEW how to balance his checkbook, and STILL have time to record a daily children's television show is clearly someone superior to a heroin-infused-cookie addict.

Contention 2: Cookie Monster is the Epitome of Over-rated-ness
Seriously? He's ALL show, guys. When society claims that an addict to a certain substance that most certainly is not dough, sugar, eggs, and cream alone, then you might as well re-elect Bush, or elect Palin, and start killing every first-born child (or whatever else was on Palin's adjenda). Also, this is a key thing to note during the round, Cookie Monster is no longer the Cookie Monster. Now, he just eats healthy. Where's your bad@ss now, PRO?
Again, my opponent has not told us how Cookie Monster is the bomb in the first place, so I cannot adequately address what isn't there.

Thanks for the debate, and vote CON

Oh, well here comes little "I'M SO COOL THAT I WON'T OBEY RULE #2 OF THE DEBATE!"

You is not cool, brah.

Anyways, I insist by saying this, and only this:

He looks pissed. You wanna fight him?

PS: I know you're 3 feet away from me. I don't care.

Alright, so, what we can see so far in this debate is that both my contentions go uncontested.

The only argument against this is the claim that I violated Rule #2, however he doesn't clarify how I've done this, nor did he define what a "wall of text" was, so my C.1 and C.2 go through.

Now, to address my opponent's new picture:
1) Cookie Monster himself has realized the error of his ways: [First video]
2) Would you really love a man who eats veggies over...wait...nevermind

Anyway, here's some other info about Big Bird:
1) Big Bird dealing with paparazzi http://www.herecomestheboss.com...
2) Big Bird takin' care of buisness http://roflrazzi.files.wordpress.com...
3) When Big Bird was young, he had to learn how to survive on the streets http://www.lolhome.com...
4) H stands for Ho' http://seedgivethtree.files.wordpress.com...
5) What I wear at school http://rlv.zcache.com...

Clearly, the resolution has been NEGATED.

Okay. Okay. Okay. Okay. Okay.

Okay,
A wall of text is an immense amount of text compared to my first post. It's short things like that. *facepalm*

The big bird is clearly a terrible role model; he steals, he flips people off, and he is the symbol of big gangstas walking the streets with their gats headin to rob a kwikemart.

The cookie monster is a loving and caring creature; he was a role model to fat kids in the 70s everywhere. You cannot simply blame himslef for converting to vegetablism; blame hollywood. How can a celebrity still get by without being twigthin, like Amy Whinehouse. He had to turn to vegetables, and yes, that might be his fault, but I mean, he didn't want to end up like Big Bird; he has REALLY let himself go.

The cookie monster will always be the cookie monster.

And, I was really contemplating posting this as my whole retort:

Well guys, here's a quick wrap-up...

I have made two explicit contentions proving my case. These went un-refuted but for one argument, which I have adequately defeated as well. Because of this, you will be voting NEGATIVE.

Remember that if you think any character (Elmo ftw) is superior to the cookie monster, you vote for me as well.

In conclusion, good debate, bro.
Big Bird: [First video]

vs.

Cookie Monster: [Second Video]

Which makes more sense? The choice is obvious. NEGATE

Just thought of something that would have been awesome for Con.

"Somebody set us up the bomb.

No one set me for one up with Cookie monster, so maybe you but not us.

If somebody set us up the bomb, and nobody set us up the Cookie Monster, then the cookie monster is not the bomb."

Paramore is clearly nub as she thinks that Radioactivepotatoman is serious in ANY way, especially a clearly sarcastic statement.

Regardless, welcome to the site, but remember to LURK MOAR
