I'd like to tell you about...

...the time I got fired from Sesame Street.

As a young man I was hired as a writer for the internationally acclaimed children's show Sesame Street. Alas, I only lasted a week.

My first script involved introducing a new character, a rascally little rapscallion in a cowboy hat and black mask who ran around the neighbourhood stealing the letter 'R' from words.

For some reason the folks at Seasame Street didn't think a character named The Rs Bandit was right for them. To this day I don't know why.
