‘Doctor Who’ thing of the day: Is Oscar the Grouch a Time Lord?

Long has the mystery haunted humanity: Just what kind of creature is Oscar the Grouch, anyway? Irrefutable evidence gleaned in a recent scientific study points indisputably to one answer alone: Oscar the Grouch is a a Time Lord.

At least, so says BillChas at the blog The Elegance of Humanity in America. The evidence, m’Luds, begins with Oscar’s trash can, the inside of which is pictured below [Exhibit A]:


Oscar’s trash can is obviously much larger on the inside. It is said to contain, apart from the items pictured, an elephant, a swimming pool, a china cabinet, and a portal to Oscar’s home planet of Grouchland. I can hear your nerdly grumblings already: “But BillChas, surely you know that Time Lords are from the Planet Gallifrey in the constellation of Kasterborous at “galactic coordinates ten-zero-eleven-zero-zero by zero-two from galactic zero centre.” I say it was a ruse – that Oscar was merely hiding his true home planet to live a low-profile life on a happy block full of happy neighbors singing about the alphabet in Queens, New York.

What may we infer? Oscar’s trash can is a TARDIS!

I direct the jury to further evidence and beg you to draw your own conclusion. Which will be: Oscar the Grouch is a Time Lord.
