This subtly brilliant Sesame Street sketch… well just watch it.

Now what lessons does this deceptively simple sketch teach?

  • The order of letters in a word is important. (Probably the original idea that the writers started with.)
  • Just because your first impulse is to think something is not true, that doesn’t mean it’s not true, and vice versa. Especially if you’re proven wrong several times in a row.
  • Calling to make sure something is ready before you go to pick it up in person is often a good idea.
  • Some names are not as uncommon as you might think.
  • Patience is a virtue, especially if you’re the straight man (though the opposite is true if you’re the funny man).
  • If you are freaking out in a store or other public place, don’t be surprised if people start thinking there’s something wrong with you.

Six important life lessons distilled into a two and half minute sketch. That’s the Sesame Street I remember.
