Watch Ian McKellen Teach Cookie Monster What 'Resist' Means
It may not quite stick.
During the holidays, it's hard for even those of us with a strong vocabulary to remember that it might be a good idea to resist the temptation of all the bars and booze bacon-wrapped scallops surrounding us. So this lesson from Sir Ian McKellen to Sir Cookie Monster on the meaning of the word "resist" is a very timely one.
Now that he's taught Cookie this sense of the word "resist," Sir Ian McKellen can move on to explaining why it's important to resist state-imposed strictures on citizens' freedom! Something for the new year.
