Day 16: Scary Sunday: Elmo Attacks!

Some of you have already seen this unfortunate photo on Facebook that I posted yesterday.  It's from our Buddy Walk (more on the event later).  I can only say that Elmo is actually a lot scarier than he looks, and I think we should be schooling our children to realize that a creepy person in a straggly red fur costume is not the sweet little boy-monster who talks in first person and loves his fish, Dorothy.  As a matter of fact, just adding to the creep-factor, Elmos with creepy people in them don't actually speak at all.  And they make Elmo look dirty and super-skinny, kinda like Elmo with a brutal substance (read:  crack) abuse problem. 

And Elmo eats children.

There.  I said it.  And I have proof.  Samantha nearly found herself in his clutches today, an unwitting victim, falling prey to the wolf in sheep's clothing.  But her ever-vigilant mommy noticed something before it was too late for her, even if it was too late for his other victims...


Okay, I'll fess up, and you can all relax - it was just a very fleeting, random moment caught on camera, a perfect juxtaposition of foreground and background (quickly edited just so you could see it better).  Really.  You don't have to hide your children from Elmo, and he's not quite that scary.  Okay, maybe he is...

Dear Becca, I was there. And not gonna lie, I found Elmo slightly creepy. So did Ellie. And her Elmo-obsessed god-sister even kept a safe distance.

This is why as a party planner I insist that every parent should screen their character performer before every event- LOL! A too skinny Elmo with matted fur is never good--even if he is NOT eating children. (Too bad you didn't see the Dora character at a friend's bday party I recently went to- Hello Bed Head. Clearly the girl had been having a romp prior to her bday party duties. What does THAT teach our children??) :)
