B Cool

Take a classically-trained, A-list actor and give him a B and what do you get? A fantastic soliloquy to the second letter of the alphabet as delivered by Sir Patrick Stewart.

Ah, Sesame Street! What can’t you do?


The 27th Letter Of The Alphabet

I was, for some reason, thinking of this bit from Sesame Street the other day – “Kermit and Joey Say the Alphabet.” I can’t say why it was on my mind but I think this might just be the quintessential Sesame Street clip. It’s got Kermit, an iconic Muppet; it teaches the alphabet yet remains rooted in humor; and it features a child so impossibly adorable without being saccharine.

In fact, I like it so much I think I will forevermore randomly insert Cookie Monster into any word I spell out loud.
