Elmo is the man - Post 01

I've been checking out my blog traffic stats, and I've learned something important.

The A #1 draw to my blogs seems to be one particular post. This post: Wingnuts & Moonbats: La la lala, la la lala, Elmo's Song. Our little buddy Elmo has been googled in combination with any number of different words, from "kill" and "death" to "song" or "cute," & everything in between. Those who aren't hunting out Elmo, are lookin' for the "lala song".

Unfortunately, that post is more'n'likely unsatisfying to most searchers, as it is about a commenter who's nom d'blog is Elmo, and whose song is a left wing partisan screed about chickenhawk Republicans. It's funny, and worth a view, even if you don't agree with it, but it isn't the little red Elmo in any way, shape or form.

I'm hoping to make it up to those unsatisfied customers with this series. Elmo -- the REAL Elmo -- in as much of his internet glory as I have time & space for.

First, my favorite story:

Toddler's Elmo Doll Makes Death Threats, Family Says

The truth (I think) is found here, among the comments: When good toys go bad X: Elmo makes death threats to toddler - Engadget

Mystery solved. One of the names in the database from Fisher Price is "Keir" somehow that got chosen as the name to say. It is exactly what this Elmo is saying.

It could be worse - at least Elmo didn't say "wang" or "vivia2" (sounds like "vulva" or he would be accused of sexual harassment.

Oh - and "clint" does NOT sound like Clint.
