There’s a Sesame Street app for that

It's not the Sesame Workshop's most inspired parody (an iPhone and a pogo stick?). But it aired, ironically, less than a month after Apple (aapl) won trademark approval for the tagline "There's an app for that."

We suspect that it was Verizon's (vz) stinging "There's a map for that" ad campaign, not a scat singing pogo stick, that Apple had in mind when it filed for trademark protection last May. Guy Smiley and his multitasking pals should have nothing to fear.
