Cookie Monster and John Oliver make the best newscasting duo

And that's the way the cookie crumbles.

Two unlikely newsmen are coming together to deliver the word on the news—many of them, in fact.

In a collaboration we could only dream of, Mashable brought Last Week Tonight’s John Oliver together with Cookie Monster. When they’re not delivering underreported stories and eating all the cookies, respectively, they co-anchor the news all about words with some help from an all-star supporting crew. If there’s a missing letter or a misused word—or even an old but still ongoing debate that needs time in the spotlight—W-ORD is on it.

It’s not a real newscast by any means, but people would watch it.

The outtakes might be even better than the original newscast, if you can believe it.

And that’s the way the cookie crumbles.
