They say mental illness isn’t funny, but when I say “they” I mean my dishwasher and mailbox, and those two liars are always spreading rumors about me. Case in point: a mentally disturbed man in an Elmo costume was kicked out of Central Park Zoo over the weekend for shouting things like “If you start your own business in this city, Jews will harass you!” I don’t mean to make light of Antisemitism, but come on, dude gets points for flair.
The evil Elmo was spotted screaming obscenities while the NYPD carried the impostor out in an ambulance on Sunday.
In 2009, he was caught hassling tourists strolling along in Times Square demanding they take pictures with him for cash. When refused, the impostor cursed them out. His rude behavior resurfaced in 2010. [HuffingtonPost]
In the videos below, the man complains about being squeezed by the Jewish costume companies and urges people to read “The International Jew by Henry Ford.” He eventually got thrown in an ambulance and taken away, which was very disappointing for me as no one appears to have chased him around with butterfly nets first (much harder to pair the scene with Yakety Sax in my mind without butterfly nets). I blame the Jews.
It’s a little-known fact that in the Islamic world, Jew-Hating Elmo is actually far more popular than his brother Tickle-Me. It’s a cultural thing.
