La la lala la la lala Elmo's World...

Elmo.... if you raised a child in America in the last 30 years you've met him. He is a small, furry monster, who lives on Sesame Street.  He is affectionate, kind and caring. He loves to meet little kids and  just adores babies. Elmo lives in 'Elmo's World and has a Methuselah of a goldfish called Dorothy.

My daughter adored Elmo when she was a young toddler. Her second birthday cake featured Elmo. She had Elmo shirts, sneakers, bags and of course an Elmo stuffie. And as much as it was a treasured part of her early toddler life, I was elated when she outgrew Elmo. You see, Elmo always drove me crazy.

What drove me nuts wasn't his falsetto, or even his ever cheerful, insipid voice. It was the fact that even after 30 years he still hadn't learned the use of pro-nouns.

.... please.... aaarrrgghhhhh, no !!! it has Elmo on it !!

excuse me.............

......sorry.

Would someone please enroll that furry, red, little monster in an intervention class? He has got to learn to use pronouns. What is he teaching our kids?  I thought Sesame Street was all about fun and LEARNING!  Give the little creep an ultimatum... start using pro-nouns or you're looking for a new job.

Couldn't some just knit him into a rug and get it over with?
