La La How The Life Goes On

Tickle Me Elmo

Posted on: November 28, 2012

For all the pearl-clutching mom bloggers out there aghast at how they are going to explain the Kevin Clash situation to their children, I offer this sage advice, brought to you by the letter E and the number 7:

YOU DON’T.

Maybe your kid is all up in IMDB at the age of 3 but I have to imagine that, to the majority of other children, Elmo is…Elmo. A puppet. An asexual puppet. An asexual puppet who has nothing to do with the inappropriate touchy-feelies of any actor.

So please let’s can the now-tired “what about the children!” trope. If you really care about your kids you won’t touch this mess with a ten foot pole. And you won’t show them these pics:
