I invented grunge

“Hey, I invented grunge! It’s a look I’ve been sporting for years,” Even Grungetta won’t deny that. Oscar the Grouch has been, more often than not, grouchy for 40 years, since he was put into the garbage can after Jim Henson encountered a grumpy waiter at a New York restaurant Oscar’s Tavern.

Approaching 40 in a few days, Oscar cannot be more ill-tempered. Not only was he told that some early 'Sesame Street' episodes are intended for grown-ups, and may not suit the needs of today's preschool child, but he had to teach grown-ups fashion? Well, together with some other fashion icons—oh, no, not Vera Wang or Carolina Herrera—we mean Big Bird in feather, and Bert in stripes, the fashion education day in fact turned out to be one of those more enlightened time for him on the street.
