Tom Hiddleston is magical. Thank you. I'm going to go watch this about a bazillion more times.

Watching Cookie Monster have a meltdown in Martha Stewart's kitchen was actually kind of painful, Iridic. I feel for the monster.

Also, does Hiddleston play Loki in the upcoming Muppet movie? Because that would be great.

Dear tumblr:

Re: Tom Hiddelston and my previous indifference

NOW I get it. I apologize for not seeing it sooner. I was completely at fault.

Sincerely,

Damn it Marvel, I'm getting real tired of you trotting out these actors in your movies who just seem utterly delightful in real life, and it's just too much. The last one who seemed even remotely like an asshole was RDJ, and even he has enough charm to get past my defenses. You can't even make the villains hateful because you hire cuddly sweethearts like Hiddleston to play them. Do you wonder why Tumblr has fandoms for all your antagonists? Because they're, like, omnisexually attractive in every way.

Is this fellow ever not utterly delightful and charming?

There is a reason Ive spent a small fortune on clothing, hair bleaching, and physical trainers. I BLAME YOU MARVEL I BLAME YOU.

Tom Hiddleston's smile should be declared a legal intoxicant in all jurisdictions.

Would you settle for a Muppets/Thor Crossover? (Note: have tissue at the ready by p.16)

(I still say it should be said as "the cookie monster." Seems more appropriate/fun somehow.)

Until today, despite being weaned on Sesame Street, I had no idea where OM NOM NOM came from.

This story of a 5-year-old visiting the set of the Avengers contains one of the best pictures of Hiddleston ever.

Poor Cookie Monster. HE WAIT ALL DAY!

"Didn't it taste better for waiting?"

Waaaay too sexy for Sesame Street.

Cookie Monster is the funniest being alive. His comic timing - you could cut diamonds with it, it's so precise.

I want Tom Hiddleston and a bunch of puppets to make a show explaining the social history of religious movements. Here's the script for the predestination episode:

"So you're saying if me wait, get cookie."
"Ultimately, yes."

Tom Hiddleston is proof of a benevolent god. A benevolent god who wants us to look at sexy, sexy men.

I'm really disappointed that Spurs traded Tom Huddlestone to Hull. I thought he'd be a great buy for Liverpool.

Wait, am I getting this wrong?

Tom Hiddleston is my ideal companion for a trip to Six Flags. He would patiently wait for hours in the hot sun to get on the rides while being funny and cheerful. My treat, Hiddles. Whaddaya say?

It was quite a sad day for me when I realized that Cookie Monster didn't eat the cookies, he just crumbled them into pieces and tossed the pieces around to make it look like he was eating the cookies. A piece of me died that day.

He does eat the cookies. You have to look more closely, with your real eyes.

Okay, let's not get carried away. GRANTED Cookie Monster is one of the BEST monsters, with his googly eye and floppy fingers and gruff voice and warm blue fur and endearingly urgent sweet tooth and GRANTED cookies are awesome and GRANTED Tom Hiddleston is super cute, with a sexy voice and a demeanor that makes him seem like the kind of guy you'd love to spend some serious quality time with...

Wait, where was I going with this?

I dunno where you were going, but I'll be in my bunk.

These remind me of every dog I have ever owned. Especially the Martha Stewart video -- that was what happened whenever I tried to prepare food with the Labrador and Border Collie guy in the room. ME NO FEEL PAIN.

This was great. However, I saw the AV Club part, and I thought they'd run a conversation between Hiddleston and the Cookie_Monster commenter, who is the best AV Club commenter.

Oh, man, that was charming beyond all human comprehension.

...

I once met Grover, as an adult, as part of a film school thing. It is, without exaggeration, astonishing how lifelike Muppets are in real life. When Grover speaks, it is the most natural thing in the world to look him in the eye and respond to him. It is the closest thing we have to magic.
