The fluffy blue monster who speaks broken English and loves cookies is one of the most instantly recognisable residents of Sesame Street and is popular with children and adults, alike, for his simple approach to life. It was, therefore, unsurprising that when Cookie Monster held an AMA (Ask me anything) on Reddit for the Sesame Street children’s charity, there were a lot of questions, and Me_CookieMonster account did a brilliant job of staying in character – probably because he’s totally real and I’ll hear no argument on the subject.
This is how he introduced the AMA.
“HI! Me COOKIE MONSTER. Me love cookies. And me want to meet you!
Me running dis thing where you and a friend can come to Sesame Street to eat Cookies with Oscar the Grouch. No no, me just joking! You get to eat cookies with ME! And me promise, me will share! Just go to DIS LINK to enter!
And da best part? All of money we collect will go to help the Yellow Feather Fund. Like me friend Chris say, it help us bring learning and laughter to children in need. Ya, ya, ya get to do good and eat cookies! It what we call “win win.”
Okay, me be back in 20 minutes or so to answer your questions. (Me have to take a batch of cookies out of da oven! Oh boy oh boy oh boy, me can’t wait!) See you soon!”
There were thousands of questions and answers, but these are a few we loved.
Naturally, there were many questions about his favourite food.
But some people wanted life tips.
