People Are Torn Over Whether Grover Dropped The F-Bomb On ‘Sesame Street’
Prepare yourself, people: Yanny vs. Laurel 2.0 may be upon us.
A clip from “Sesame Street,” is circulating online and sparking a debate as to whether the iconic children’s character Grover is saying something perfectly acceptable or has fully embraced the show’s partnership with HBO.
Take a listen yourself.
the new Yanni v. Laurel? — some people swear they hear Grover saying, "that's a f**king excellent idea."

To some, it sounds like, “Yes, yes that’s a fucking excellent idea!”

Other people hear a much more innocent exclamation, with Grover saying, “Yes, yes that sounds like an excellent idea!”
He's saying "that sounds like an excellent idea".

Many are just baffled.
I hear Grover swearing. I don't believe Grover actually swore. I'm confused and will need some time with my thoughts as I try to figure this out. https://t.co/iihSlEfIPd

First listen: OMG WHAT HAHAHA
Second listen: Ah, definitely "sounds like an"
Third listen: You know what, after all these years if Grover wants to drop an F-bomb then he's damn well earned the right. https://t.co/TUbhS11UDE

I can’t believe the new “Yanny or Laurel?” is “did grover just drop the f-bomb on Sesame Street?” 2018 is cutting it close to the wire with this one.

Redditor u/schrodert posted the clip on Thursday to the platform’s r/funny subreddit. According to the post, the parent stumbled upon the auditory illusion “thanks to my daughter’s obsession with Elmo.” U/schrodert said they initially heard the R-rated version, but believe the actual line is, “Yes, yes, that sounds like an excellent idea.”
HuffPost reached out to “Sesame Street” to get the answer but did not receive an immediate response. We will update this post once we get the TRUTH.
