“Today’s show is brought to you by the number 38 and the letter double D.”
The overexposure on the Katy Perry & Elmo’s tawdry relationship isn’t dying down just yet. Not that I’m complaining because it’s more unsolicited gawking that we get to do. Even though Elmo’s promised a make-up date with Katy, nobody wants to see a censored remake. All funnies aside, SNL’s “Bronx Beat” ladies’ snarky commentary harps on what the minds at Jim Henson’s workshop may have missed about airing the original – “The kids come for the boobs, they stay for the books.” Exposure to Perry’s puppies (click it!) could have helped a future illiterate develop an early lust for learning, thus changing the course of history.
Oh yeah, Fox took advantage of the attention to announce that Ms. Perry will be a guest on an upcoming episode of The Simpsons. In a released statement, the show’s talking heads say that “In the wake of Elmo’s terrible betrayal, ‘The Simpsons’ puppets wish to announce they stand shoulder-to-shoulder with Katy Perry.”
