Everyone loves a good Reddit AMA, or Ask Me Anything. It's the perfect opportunity for fans to get to know their favorite celebrities even better and for celebs to give all of us a glimpse into who they really are. In recent years, we have gotten some pretty amazing AMAs including Jane Goodall, Bill Gates, and Elon Musk. 2019 is off to a great start because one of our childhood favorites just had an epic AMA session.
The latest hit AMA comes from a little monster whom we all hold dear and identify with like crazy. Yep, Cookie Monster just hosted a Reddit Ask Me Anything.
He revealed his plan yesterday afternoon on Twitter.
ATTENTION! Me doing @reddit AMA right now. Come ask me questions! https://t.co/TrAT249dwG https://t.co/DDjktZ0DNB— Cookie Monster (@Cookie Monster)1549479768.0
From there, he created his Reddit thread.
The best part, however, was that he was using the entire AMA as a ploy to raise money for a pretty rad charity.
As would be expected, the questions quickly poured in.
Here are some of the best

Finally, one person asked the most important question of all.
"What's the most important part of a cookie?" - Cursed60Car (Reddit)
