It's not as easy as it seems.
The Count is less creepy today, but now he's a very unfair boss. Nevertheless, I love the way he says, "Oh, you tricky Ernie!" I imagine that Ernie resigned shortly thereafter. Still, you've got to admire his determination and dedication to the job. I hope the Count wrote him a nice letter of recommendation, at least.
Sometimes I wonder how Sesame Street can always be so sunny when the Count is always counting and causing thunder and lightning. They must be constantly checking the weather forecasts so they know when a real thunderstorm is coming.
