This is One Good Thing, a weekly column where we tell you about one of the few nice things that happened this week.
Love is real and has taken physical manifestation in the comment section of Cookie Monster’s AMA.
If you’re at all familiar with Reddit you’ll know what AMA means, and if you’re not it stands for “ask me anything,” a subreddit where users can ask celebrities and authoritative figures whatever they want.
This week, Reddit was blessed with the most wholesome AMA from none other than Sesame Street‘s Cookie Monster, and his answers were snappier than a good gingersnap.
The reason for the Cookie Monster takeover was to raise awareness for the Yellow Feather Fund, which “brings educational materials to children in need.”
The comments section was filled with the cutest cookie questions for Cookie Monster that were more than enough to knock the chocolate chip off of anyone’s shoulder. Cookie Monster’s answers made us laugh, he made us cry, and he made us eat cookies. Here are some of the best answers Cookie Monster gifted us.
Reddit comments sections can be a bit divisive, but in this glorious moment, the Reddit community came together to create the most beautiful comments section of all time. It couldn’t have been done without the curation of our lord and savior, Cookie Monster, who covered a plethora of topics in this Q & A.
He gave the best tips on how to clean up when the cookie crumbles:
He warned our nation’s young cookie entrepreneurs about the dangers of loving your product too much:
He dabbled in some cheeky snack humor with user AstronautCheesecake:
Redditors absolutely loved having Cookie Monster do an AMA. They were well aware he brought more joy to the site than usual, and asked him to come back. Many users commented that he made their day, and that his comedic skills were under appreciated, a statement with which we totally agree.
This AMA is more pure than water from a regularly cleaned Brita Filter, and we highly recommend that you read the full thread to fill your heart with the joy only Sesame Street could provide.
After the AMA, Cookie Monster shared his thanks on Twitter, but we couldn’t help but notice the “motivational” poster in the background of his photo, if you can really call it that.
Not really sure if the poster is meant to be motivational for Cookie Monster to wait for snack time or if it’s meant to be the cookie trying to hang in there and avoid being eaten. The latter is a pretty pointless objective, because Cookie Monster is bound to devour it.
These comments are sure to make you snicker(doodle).
