The Cookie Monster is on the run after stealing a 44 lbs. golden biscuit from the front a factory in Germany.

The thief sent a picture to the media of himself in a Cookie Monster outfit biting the golden biscuit. He also included a ransom note spelled out with magazine clippings.

His demands were a donation of chocolate cookies to the local children’s hospital and a $1,400 donation to a local animal shelter.

The real Cookie Monster took to Twitter to absolve himself yesterday. His response can be found below.
