As part of the "Midnight Confessions" segment of the late-night talk show, Cookie Monster interrupted Colbert's confession session -- the host told his audience that since he didn't get to church often enough he'd just make confession to the audience, booth and all -- with a few confessions of his own. You can check it out in the video above.
Turns out Cookie had some pretty big secrets to get off his chest. His iconic blue fur is apparently a lie or at least as started to grey over the years. Cookie revealed that he uses "Just For Monsters" to keep the color its bright, signature shade of blue. Cookie, who was there to promote his new book "The Joy of Cookies", also revealed the equally surprising secret that despite nearly five decades helping teach kids the alphabet he is still not sure on it himself.
"Me been practicing alphabet for almost 50 years," he said. "But sometimes, me a little sketchy after letter C."
