  • Hey, did everybody do the new update?

  • Yes.

  • Okay, not the phones.

  • I'm not talking about the phones.

  • I'm talking about the alphabet.

  • Did you see this?

  • Yes!

  • Yeah, the song that we all learned as a kid to learn the ABCs, the whole alphabet, they changed it.

  • Yep, look what they did.

  • A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, L, M, N, O, P, Q, R, S, T, U. V, W, X, Y, Z.

  • WTF?

  • They...so they supposedly changed it because kids couldn't understand the L, M, N, O, P put together.

  • So they.. this version separates those letters.

  • If you thought Bernie and Ernie being more than just roommates...

  • Bert and Ernie.

  • Huh?

  • Bert and Ernie.

  • Bert and Ernie.

  • Bernie and Ert... is that what I said?

  • You said Ernie and Bernie.

  • I don't know.

  • I just, I don't know these people.

  • Bert and Ernie, if you thought that they were--being more than just roommates was upsetting your childhood, this is a whole other level.

  • Bert and Ernie should be together. So should L, M, N, O, P.

  • Who did it? Who changed it? Who can I sue?

  • That's...that...those...those were the questions.

  • The old song was fine.

  • It's not like people don't eventually learn the letters.

  • Ultimately, we know L, M, N, O, P is not one letter.

  • Just like at some point we know that "pisketti" is spaghetti.

  • Which I learned recently.

  • There are some things, though, that shouldn't change.

  • Remember how Pluto was a planet, and then it wasn't, and then now it is again?

  • Make up your mind, space doctors.

  • Listen, if we're going to start changing childhood things, I've got other ideas.

  • How about we make LEGOs soft?

  • How about that?

  • I don't even have kids, and yet I've managed to step on one.

  • And also I think drinking age should be 16, driving age should be 21, and by 14 every child should have a rescue animal.

  • Whether it's a dog, a cat, a possum- I am not...just everyone should have a rescue animal.

  • And if we're going to start changing songs, I have an idea.

  • Let's change "Baby Shark" by removing all the words and all the music.
