Muhammad Ali

Today Muhammad Ali is laid to rest.

After a nearly 20-mile long procession through the late boxer's hometown of Louisville, Kentucky — the family and mourners alike gathered in the KFC Yum! Center to honor the life and legacy of the athlete.

As you know, Ali passed away last Friday at the age of 74 after a long battle with Parkinson's disease.

Thousands of fans lined the streets as the procession took the coffin past Ali's childhood home, the Ali Center, the Center for African American Heritage, and then finally down Muhammad Ali Boulevard.

Will Smith and ex-boxers Mike Tyson and Lennox Lewis were honored with being pallbearers for the service. Tyson decided last minute to attend the funeral after concerns he would be "too emotional." So sad.

Former President Bill Clinton, actor Billy Crystal, lifelong friend John Ramsey, and sportscaster Bryant Gumbel are all set to deliver eulogies honoring The People's Champ.

Following the ceremony, the family - including Ali's nine children, wife, and two ex-wives — will gather for a private burial at Cave Hill cemetery.

What a powerful day, and even more important, a powerful legacy.

Sesame Street Went There With That Orgasm Joke From When Harry Met Sally — And Yes, It's Safe For Kids!

How cute!

One of the best things about modern-era Sesame Street is that the kids' show isn't afraid of pulling out a reference that will go over its core audience's head just to entertain parents.

And that aspect may have never been as on display as it was in their recent parody of When Harry Met Sally – appropriately titled When Cookie Met Sally.

Seeing as this is still a show for children, Sally teaches Cookie the importance of patience, while Cookie shows Sally how to indulge sometimes…

But we barely noticed that at all because the short actually threw in a nod to the famous orgasm scene from the Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal classic! LOLz!!!

We guess they're really itching to make their move over to HBO for the next five years.

Ch-ch-check out the parody that was certainly lost on kids everywhere (below)!!!
