Great Internet Debates: Sesame Street's Grover Sounding Like He Drops An F-Bomb

December 31, 2018


Note: I'd recommend watching the video first.

The latest in the internet's Yanny vs Laurel debates, this is a video of Sesame Street's Grover in which he sounds like he drops an f-bomb, saying "Yes, yes, that's a f***ing excellent idea." Of course he doesn't really curse, he's actually saying "Yes, yes, that sounds like an excellent idea." Admittedly, when I first listened to it all I could hear was the curse, presumably because that's what I was expectign. Then when I read what he was actually saying I couldn't hear the f-bomb at all any more. Weird! Then I realized I didn't care and ate two cold Pop-Tarts at once, one stacked on top of the other. "Did you at least heat them up first?" I sure as hell did not. "You're a monster." Oh I know.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks again to becca b, who didn't hear anything but a blue and black dress.

    Nope, there's no f-bomb. He just says, "Move the camera! Yes! Yes! That sounds like an excellent idea!"

  • The_Wretched

    Uh, not even close. I don't hear anything even close to a f-bomb.

  • Andyman7714

    You can all go sound yourselves.

  • Crow

    I only hear him say "yanny"...

  • GeneralDisorder

    No way he said "that sounds like an excellent idea"... Nope. No way in hell... Except that's exactly what he said. Get your fucking ears checked if your don't hear that.

    It might depend on where you're from and regional accents. I don't hear 'fuh-king' though, I hear fukken. Like a French Canadian speaking English at normal French speed.

    F + ucking = That's...

    ... A Stretch, like krod2013 says.

  • Ollie Williams

    I can hear it both ways, depending on which I'm listening for.

  • Andyman7714

    It seems like it depends on where you start the context of the sentence. This is the first time I can actually hear both version. Like you said, it depends on what I'm listening for.

  • Talon184

    I can't hear the f-bomb at all

  • Closet Nerd

    Craving Pop Tarts after watching Bird Box?

  • James Mcelroy

    this is what strawberry tastes like?

  • ...this is REALLY a stretch.

  • Closet Nerd

    Now that I know what he "really" says, i can hear both.
    I could only hear fucking before
