"PBS is worried about her tits???... Sesame Street is aimed at an age group whose most recent experience with tits is feeding from them!!!" - Colonel "Whopper" Creedon, Saturday, September 25, 2010.

Little did I know that the legendary comedic talent Maya McGruber Rudolph would echo my prophetic words on Saturday Night Live's season 36 premiere with "Who cares if kids are looking at boobs? Boobs feed babies," proving that I have literally tapped into the zeitgeist of the insnity sorrounding Elmogate!

In case you haven't heard, the latest episode of children's Television series Sesame Street featured an apparence by Ms. Katy Perry. She appeared in a song with the little red muppet monster Elmo but was outfitted in a dress that some stuck-in-the-mud prudish parents deemed "unfitting" for childrens Television. Her video was promptly removed from the show. But thanks to Bruce Russell's link you can see it here.

The public outcry has been pheonomenal and was the centerpiece of Perry's apparence on SNL with guest host Amy Poehler in which Perry appeared as young Bronx girl who "developed" to extraordinary proportions over the summer. "Looks like today's show is brought to you by the number 38 and the letter double D," quipped Poehler. In defiance Perry wore an Elmo T-shirt that was rendered "distorted" by her bosom.

But what of Elmo himself? Well he appeared in an interview with George Stephanopoulos on his Good Morning America show, Friday, along with the PBS children’s show’s executive producer, Carol-Lynn Parente who had been shocked at the negative responce the video had recieved. “Elmo loves Miss Katy,” the muppett said, using his customary third-person reference. “We had a good time. So we’ll have another play date.” The blue furred Grover was a little more sarcastic “How do you like my new outfit, huh?” he asked Stephanopoulos. “It is not too revealing, is it?”

Only in America. I heard that this had been pulled for being a bit raunchy but now having seen it... what the hell are they on about!
