The Sesame Street crew means a lot to a lot of people. For Twitter user Maddy Cunningham's mother, who also happens to be a kindergarten teacher, Elmo, Big Bird, Bert, and Ernie, are all lifelong heroes...which is what made a surprise visit to the actual set to meet the real-life Muppets such an overwhelming and beautiful experience. Maddy tweeted pictures and videos of her mom's joy, and they quickly went viral!


Maddy's mother's shock at being told she's about to visit the Street is priceless.


She could barely make it through the door...

Once inside, however, she snapped some unforgettable pictures on the iconic set.


Just when she suspected the experience was ending, things escalated to the next level.


And Ernie wasn't the only neighbor who stopped by to say hi...



Maddy's mom's students will surely be jealous!

Who wouldn't want to visit Sesame Street?


If anyone's looking for a good Mother's Day gift, remember this. It might be the best one in existence!

One of the most upsetting aspects of the Covid-19 pandemic––which is saying a lot, frankly––is the number of people who have been so affected by misinformation and disinformation. You know the ones to which I refer: These are the people who are convinced the virus is a hoax despite the lives it's claimed and the devastation it has wrought on society at large. Disinformation kills––there are stories of people who remained convinced that Covid-19 is a hoax even while intubated in the ICU, even up to their last breath.

After Redditor asked the online community, "Doctors of Reddit, what happened when you diagnosed a Covid-19 denier with Covid-19?" doctors and other medical professionals shared these rather unsettling stories.
