It seems the fine folks at PBS decided to have some fun today.

The word of the day in today’s episode of “Sesame Street” was inflate.

Was that a weird coincidence given the controversy surrounding Tom Brady and the Patriots. Or was it merely trolling? You decide.

The episode is at least two years old and features Kansas City native Don Cheadle talking with Elmo about the word inflate.
