Coach O or Cookie Monster?  Listen and guess

Have you ever noticed how much LSU Football Coach Ed Orgeron and Cookie Monster sound alike?


Why? You may ask.

Well it was actually the result of two influences that had me edit those sound bites together.

It started when a listener texted 870870 the day that the voice of Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch retired.  The text suggested that Orgeron should become the new voice of Oscar.  An engineer here at WWL, Dominic, then noted that Cookie Monster was a closer match.  So, I listened... and he was right.

Now this is not the first time anyone has noted the similarities.  There are several videos (below) on the Internet that draw the comparison, but none that I could find with both Coach O and Cookie Monster speaking.

Just thought I would share.
