Joseph Gordon-Levitt Adorably Teaches Us Words on ‘Sesame Street’

+

A quick straw poll informs me that most of my female friends would stab me in the leg with an ice pick to go on a date with Joseph Gordon-Levitt, which, fine; apart from being impossibly talented, rich, and handsome, he also just seems like a nice dude. Here he is on an episode of Sesame Street, instructing the children with perfectly improvised zeal on the definition of “reinforce,” as in, “Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s career integrity was reinforced when he decided not to appear in the second G.I. Joe movie.” There’s a puppet, a hammer, a watch, and a bunch of sight gags—you will giggle, maybe, before returning to the bummer of the work day. I, on the other hand, will be working on getting that ice pick out of my femoral artery.
