The internet loves to debate anything and everything, so it’s really no surprise that includes whether or not a Sesame Street character dabbled in some profanity.
Yesterday, reddit user schrodert shared his discovery via a video where Grover expresses his excitement over an idea.
“May have just found next ‘Yanni or Laurel’ soundbite thanks to my daughter’s obsession with Elmo,” the user writes. “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.’ I hear either based on what I’m thinking.”
Some users are hearing, “Move the camera. Yes, yes, that sounds like an excellent idea:”
People are saying Grover said fuck somewhere in here but he clearly says no such thing https://t.co/M27zShSVk5

While others are hearing “Yes, yes, that’s a fucking excellent idea:”
Every listen I do it sounds like he is dropping the F bomb. Grover literally said fuck. I honestly don’t hear anything else. I listened like 20 times. 😂 https://t.co/hnOxNPH3ml

2018 gave us Grover dropping the f-bomb so the year wasn’t a total shitshow. https://t.co/HKU7hZBq3I

And like the original poster, some are actually hearing both:
Just saw this on reddit and it blew my mind. Is Grover saying “yes, yes, that’s a f**king excellent idea” or “yes, yes that sounds like an excellent idea.”
I can hear both depending on which one I’m thinking in my head! pic.twitter.com/TAYR6U94Ti

Grover is the best!!! I hear it both ways. But the “that’s a F’n excellent idea” is amazing. While “it sounds like an excellent idea” is what he really says. pic.twitter.com/9hOYde5460
