Did Grover swear on Sesame Street?
According to one parent, the character dropped the F-bomb in a recent episode of the kid-friendly show. Reddit user schrodert shared a clip of a scene during which he claimed to have heard the muppet enthusiastically shouting, “Yes, yes, that’s a f***ing excellent idea!” After a second listen, however, the dad admitted to hearing something different, and a lot more appropriate: “Yes, yes, that sounds like an excellent idea.”
“May have just found next ‘Yanni or Laurel‘ soundbite thanks to my daughter’s obsession with Elmo,” the Redditor wrote. Similarly to that last phenomenon, people are now obsessed with what Grover is actually saying.
the new Yanni v. Laurel? — some people swear they hear Grover saying, "that's a f**king excellent idea."

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

Many people are acknowledging that it’s possible to hear both versions of the line, claiming that it depends on how many times you’ve listened or even if you’re reading Grover’s lips. Others, however, have taken a more definitive stance on whether he is innocent or not.

Regardless of what certain people are hearing, some say that Grover’s sailor mouth would be an appropriate way to ring in the new year.
Grover dropping F bombs seems like the appropriate way to close out 2018. https://t.co/pUWxr5Nlmi

I know there’s lots of serious news out there, but Grover is dropping f-bombs on Sesame Street. I feel this is newsworthy and symptomatic of the current state of the nation. #sesamestreet #groverfbomb pic.twitter.com/sbLdgxc6ou
