Emboldened, one imagines, by the successful internet campaign to have actress Betty White host Saturday Night Live, famous cookie monster Cookie Monster has started his own SNL-hosting campaign with this audition tape, complete with a cookie Lady Gaga.

Can Cookie Monster ride the same hip internet-nostalgia gravy train that shot Betty White back to the top? (Someone get him a social media outreach manager!) I mean, frankly, if all of our SNL hosts are going to be chosen by internet fiat, I'd just as soon see a puppet.
