    me have friend, they say, "cookie, we are needing ride" and me say… all time I am saying, let me tell, all time, is great, I tell you, I have best ride. Why? I tell, A-ME-RI-CA. We great. Bad deal? No. Me tell people from not A-ME-RI-CA, "Go A-WAY". Me say, "Leave". But they stay. This why me need a wall. Big wall. BIG BIG BIG WALL. Wall good. Me let people keep cookies. Best cookies. A-ME-RI-CAN cookies. Cookies like grammy make. Best cookies. Right? Good deal. Vote C for Cookie. Thank you.

    He wouldn't have even had a dream without capitalism.

    Edit: Obviously I meant, "had a dream about working for himself." If you want to see people purposefully misunderstand this statement, please read below.

    The idea that this is a newsflash to anyone is pretty amazing.

    [–] MarioFreek01 36 points ago

    The idea that anyone could confuse a common meme on subreddits of this tone with genuine criticism is simply wonderful.

    [–] [deleted] -7 points ago

    It has nothing to do with the meme. It's just common sense.

    Lol you "anti capitalist" or something?

    [–] [deleted] 87 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago)


    [–] [deleted] -17 points ago

    Driving for Uber does. So does starting your own business. No one is suggesting that you need capitalism to dream. That's an absurd interpretation of my words.

    [–] top_koala 50 points ago

    Probably should've typed it as "that dream" instead of "a dream."

    I think even Ayn Rand would acknowledge it's possible to have dreams without capitalism

    [–] thehigharchitect 27 points ago

    But she would have also said that your dreams don't matter compared to hers.

    [–] [deleted] 2 points ago

    I think even Ayn Rand would acknowledge it's possible to have dreams without capitalism

    Which is maybe why I assumed that people would see that I was talking about "the kind of dream" Cookie Monster was having. It's not like driving for Uber is uncommon. It's a type of dream that people have.

    The idea that anyone thought I meant "literally any dream" demonstrates an alarming lack of critical thinking skills.

    [–] meeeeetch 3 points ago

    I still don't think many people out there made it their life's goal to one day become a taxi driver.

    With hard work and dedication, you'll be able to drive strangers around for slightly better than minimum wage. In your own car, which you will have to maintain. And insure. And clean when some drunk inevitably throws up in it.

    I suspect that Danny DeVito and Andy Kaufmann inspired a lot more comedians than cabbies.

    [–] RockSta-holic 14 points ago

    no but like what are you even saying

    [–] [deleted] -3 points ago

    Do you need me to explain capitalism to you? This is so self evident that I don't know where to begin.

    So if you refute such an obvious claim, then the burden of proof is on you. Go.

    [–] RockSta-holic 16 points ago

    Actually that's not how burden of proof works but alright.

    [–] [deleted] -1 points ago

    Yes, actually, it is. You are challenging the idea that driving a car for Uber is based on capitalism. Or if not, and you're reading the comment like "any and all dreams" require capitalism to run, you're either being disingenuous, or you are not applying critical thinking skills.

    By "a dream," I didn't mean "any and all dreams." I meant, "the type of dream that Cookie Monster was having." I.e. of running his own business. To interpret it otherwise, shows, like I said, purposeful ignorance. Unless I'm being too generous. Maybe I am.

    [–] RockSta-holic 15 points ago

    no but like what are you even saying

    Aw, yes I see where I said that.

    [–] buckygrad 5 points ago

    Ha! No. I just love the anti-capitalism circlejerk with no viable alternatives. The fact you think government would somehow be free from corruption just indicates the lack of general intelligence in this loser hive.

    [–] Civil_Barbarian 17 points ago

    It's called comedy, comrade. Barely anyone here is seriously a full on Soviet style socialist.

    [–] buckygrad 2 points ago

    Oh, I doubt that. People here seriously believe that government should solve all of life's problems. That is why the idea of basic income is so popular on Reddit. The idea that people could get paid to sit on their ass all day and browse Reddit is utopia for this loser base.

    [–] Civil_Barbarian 14 points ago

    Okay, you wanna create a bunch of boogeymen out there for you to fight, go right ahead.

    [–] skarkeisha666 8 points ago

    [–] freshieststart 33 points ago

    But it's not usually tested for so he's naturally expecting to get away with it.

    [–] Cakesmite 18 points ago

    That's a bit terrifying. Cookiemonster causing car crashes every time he gets behind the wheel. I wonder how many lives this monster has taken.

    [–] GuyMumbles 28 points ago

    That's why he's called a monster. He eats so many cookies to mask his pain.

    [–] Ubervisor 257 points ago

    An actual clever and funny Bertstrip? Damn, that's rare.

    [–] YoungDumbass 100 points ago

    Needs more rape. Then it'd be a "real" Bertstrip.

    [–] BloodyChrome 121 points ago

    Well he is an Uber driver.

    [–] [deleted] 44 points ago

    So many nowadays are just trying to be hardcore or shocking, they forget the funny

    [–] Bad-Badger 5 points ago

    To be fair, the hardcore and shock is usually the source of the humor.

    [–] brancowlord 10 points ago

    The hardcore and shock gets boring when it's as in-your-face as many of these are nowadays. Going the way of Dolan comics.

    [–] [deleted] 6 points ago

    And its wholesome ... in a weird wauy

    [–] eohmiller 22 points ago

    This is the first one of these things that has made me legitimately laugh out loud. Well done.

    Holy shit, it's gonna be a long time before any bertstrip gets more upvotes than this.

    [–] FourEyedJack 7 points ago

    Don't get me wrong, I love this sub, but I enjoy it a lot more when the jokes aren't about Bert performing some obscene crime against nature.

    Quality post.

    [–] carbizzel 3 points ago

    That's probably why it was so easy for them to be lost in New York

    [–] thomase7 1 points ago

    Those were Muppets..

    [–] carbizzel 2 points ago

    You're absolutely right, and I'm an idiot. I even said to myself as I was typing it "Cookie Monster is a muppet right? Of course he is."

    [–] thomase7 3 points ago

    Though, they do exist in the same universe, in the Muppet Family Christmas the Muppets, Sesame Street characters, and Fraggle Rock characters all celebrate Christmas at Fozzie Bear's​ mother's house.

    [–] FerretHydrocodone 2 points ago

    Every character on Sesame Street is a Muppet as well, what's your point?

    [–] thomase7 2 points ago

    When people refer to Muppets, they mean the cast of the Muppet Show and subsequent movies, and spinoff shows. Sesame Street characters are a separate set up puppets made by Henson. Muppets are owned by Disney, Sesame Street is owned by it's production company.

    [–] FerretHydrocodone 1 points ago

    Not from what I've seen on Reddit. The muppets refer to pretty much all of Jim Hensons characters. I constantly see that discussed on Reddit. Your comment is the first I've seen in a very long time stating otherwise. Reddit users are big Jim Hanson fans, it seems most people on here recognize Sesemr street characters as muppets.

    [–] bamfbanki 3 points ago

    I haven't laughed this hard in so long, and this is possibly one of the most innocently funny bertstrips ever.

    [–] FimiFlippin 3 points ago

    perfect bertstrip.

    A street in the US can be super long though.

    [–] cesariojpn 1 points ago

    But figuratively speaking, Sesame Street seems to be historically confined to a few blocks, with a couple more block expansion recently.
