I predict sales of the LOL Elmo will still generate millions of dollars for Playskool this Xmas.

I really hope that's a joke, because otherwise, that's really, really sad.

Sore loser, eh?
It's got to be a joke, because that must be the silliest, most unrelated to the subject matter thing I have ever read. Seriously?

Moral of story: pay particular mind to the half-your-age-plus seven rule when dealing with teenagers.

25.

I can't imagine a fully clothed 25 year old I would treat as an equal.

I don't think equality has much to do with a successful late 40's guy offering to make a teenager's dreams come true.

Re: Brought to you by the letter "p" for "pedophilia"?

My age halved, plus 7 is 25.

Morally 25 is as low as I am allowed to go according to that equation.

I'd add a decade at least tot hat number before I'm comfortable.

As far as Elmo goes the question was legality rather than morality. It reads pretty poor if you are looking it at via the latter

Looks like the Muppet Mafia got to the accuser. Sesame Street is, after all, in the inner city.
'Elmo' accuser flip flops on accusation, now says affair did occur when he was a minor: Sheldon Stephens says he was pressured into recanting the accusation, wants to return the $125K in settlement money he received.

I knew it. This has the evil Bert's fingerprints all over it.

Damn. Kevin Clash just resigned amid new allegations. I was really hoping it wasn't true.

16 or 17 it's still predatory even if legal.

He should resign. But the misdeeds of one person doesn't change all the good Sesame Street has done over the years.
