Over the years, many have wondered as to the origins of Bert and Ernie. Have these two always been friends? When did they meet? What's Bert's mom like? Fortunately, Sesame Street has finally answered these questions in a new video. And, of course, they decided to use this opportunity to parody the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song.



Though some of their rhymes are dubious at best, the earnest story of how Bert moved to Sesame Street and met Ernie in his quest to find a friend to "laugh, learn, and share" would have been a slam dunk even if this weren't a pitch-perfect parody of Will Smith's iconic rap introduction.

Fans on Twitter were bopping right along with Bert and Ernie!







This is far from the first time Sesame Street has offered its take on a popular bit of pop-culture.


It seems Cookie Monster is a big fan of doing movie parodies...


Some of these should have received their own theatrical release!


What will Sesame Street take on next? Perhaps it's time Cookie Monster saved the world as Ethan Hunt in Cookie: Impossible - Chocolate Chip. One can only hope...

As you can imagine, they've become rather adept at noticing red flags during the interview process and beyond.

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor taylortaylortaylorrr asked the online community,

"What is a red flag from an employer that people might not immediately recognize as a red flag?"

Computers are not everyone's strong suit. Generation z is now reaching adulthood, and they've had computers, smart phones, and iPads since birth.

For anyone in an older generation, this wasn't the case. Computers weren't even advertised for the home until the Superbowl of 1984, and even then it was priced at $2,500.

Come the turn of the 21st century, computers are a staple in the home, but the advancements in the last two decades have left some people scrambling to keep up. Things that might seem basic to some are shockingly uncommon to others.
