Cookie Monster Pretty Much Loses It After John Oliver Asks Him 'What's A Cookie?'

Cookie Monster just got a very rude awakening.

It all started during a chat about the differences between the United States and the United Kingdom. "Last Week Tonight" star John Oliver called Cookie Monster "The Biscuit Monster," and it sort of all went down hill from there.

Adding insult to injury, Oliver told Cookie Monster that in the U.K., people have biscuits -- not cookies -- with their tea.

Wait. A land without cooookies?!

Luckily, Oliver and Cookie Monster have a bit of a history, so the actor knew exactly how to console his muppet friend.
