Viral Reddit Post Might Prove Grover Is Dropping the F-Bomb in ‘Sesame Street’

He said what?!

u/schrodert/Reddit

A Reddit user just discovered something shocking in an episode of Sesame Street. According to a post earlier today by u/schrodert, Grover may or may not say the F-word during a segment where he’s talking to another muppet.

“May have just found next ‘Yanni or Laurel’ soundbite thanks to my daughter’s obsession with Elmo,” the user wrote in this morning’s post. “Listen once thinking Grover says “Yes, yes, that’s a f**king excellent idea” then again KNOWING he actually says “Yes, yes, that sounds like an excellent idea.”

He then adds, “I hear either based on what I’m thinking,” before posting the six-second clip which features the famous blue puppet talking to Rosita about her camera phone and (possibly) cursing. The original video is captioned, “Seriously did Grover just drop the F bomb??”

And the post is now going viral, with over 2,100 comments debating which version of Grover’s phrase people are hearing. So far, it seems to be fairly split, with some users hearing the “normal” version and some hearing the “uncensored” version.

  1. How comfortable and prepared do you feeling speaking to your children about race and systemic racism?
    That's not a conversation I plan to have.
    I feel prepared. I will teach them that everyone is equal.
    I feel unprepared and uncomfortable, but plan to have the conversation.
    I feel prepared. I will teach them that inequality is a core American experience.
Thanks for the feedback!

Some users can even hear it both ways, like the viewer who wrote, “I couldn’t hear the non-swearing version until I was looking at the sentence in the title, and now I can’t hear the swearing until I read THAT as I’m listening! Stupid confused brain…bah!”

Many are also comparing it to other highly-debated riddles besides Yanni vs. Laurel. Viewers have brought up the blue and black vs. white and gold dress, the old witch vs. young woman picture, and the green needle vs. brainstorm clip.

And according to the comments, even kids are picking up on the “adult” version of the video. One user said, “My 4-year-old just ran over and said, ‘That’s Grover saying bad words.'”
