    OMG the next thing they'll say is that Bugs Bunny was too violent.

    What they already have?

    We're doomed.

    PS Does anyone else think Elmo should die?????

    that's crazy.


    I'm reminded of reading Catcher in the Rye this summer and pondering how it was controversial because of the sex and cursing... Yet, if it were written today it would have been controverisal because of the chain smoking and drinking. Totally different.

    meh.. the book wasn't that great anyway.

    Might be one of the most overrated books ever.

    P.S. I love Elmo. ;)

    I agree Catcher was not that great a read. And what's with serial killers and that book??

    I think we should bring back the old grumpy and cantankerous Oscar the grouch ( not the cleaned up version of today) and let him tear Elmo limb from limb and feed him to Cookie Monster

    Sesame Street was early and effective liberal propaganda. Through its depiction of "urban" settings, it was meant to make whites sympathetic to blacks and Hispanics. It promoted race-mixing. Never mind that when you actually go to the ghetto, you get a knife in the back, not a red puppet singing to you.

    For truly politically incorrect stuff, try old fairy tales.
