Sesame Street thinks it has the answer to all of the problems depicted on HBO's Game of Thrones.


The wildly popular series about seven strained families vying for the Iron Throne returned last week and the first episode, titled "Winterfell," reminded us that none of these people get along.

A tense negotiation between Tyrion and Cersei Lannister is sidelined once Elmo shows up to preach about this little thing called "respect." Yes, it seems the Lannisters never even listened to that famous Aretha Franklin song.

"Elmo thinks that you two need to respect each other," says Elmo, who adds:

"When Elmo has a problem with his friends like Abby or Cookie Monster, Elmo doesn't get upset. Elmo listens and learns from what they have to say."

"If we stop fighting and work together, we can be stronger," realizes Tyrion, and before you know it, Tyrion and his sister are setting aside their differences faster than you can say Valar morghulis.

Who knew Elmo could succeed at what (now) eight seasons of television were utterly unable to achieve?

Seriously: Who knew?!






Thanks, Sesame Street. We'll just defer to you next time.

When I was a child, I wanted so badly for dragons to exist. To be fair, I had a bit of an obsession with stories of man-eating reptiles and serpents after watching The Lair of the White Worm at too young an age. (Thank you for rocking my world, Ken Russell.)

Sadly... they don't. And if they did, I gather they'd probably pose a major national security risk!

Bad grammar... where to begin?

It's not "could of." It's "could've."It's not "should of." It's "should've."

Oh, here's another: "Losing" is not the same as "loosing."They are, in fact, entirely different things.

Don't make me hate you – why does everyone get these wrong?!

I don't know if it's laziness or fear. They are the two strongest reasons for putting things off in life. I totally get it and I'm completely guilty of it.

I often reference the legendary mantra Scarlett O'Hara lived by... "I'll think about tomorrow. After all, tomorrow is another day." People love and cling to that idea.

Most of us keeping pushing tomorrows. And eventually, that often leads to chaos. And sometimes death. I'm not exaggerating. There are just some things in life that are too important to ignore. No matter how difficult.

So let's get to it.

Redditor u/Bedwar_man wanted everyone to be more responsible and start being more on top of things, they asked:

What is something that, when left unchecked, can ruin a persons life?
