Curaçao’s “Cookie Monster of the Sea” is about three feet tall and located off Westpunt… and we can’t deny that the resemblance is strong, very strong… so much so that he’s been featured on:
Yahoo News Canada
American Live Wire
Twitter feeds everywhere
… and counting! (come on BuzzFeed!)
(Cookie Monster has identified Curaçao’s Cookie Monster as cousin Morty 🙂
