Could Shackle Me Elmo—"press his belly and he spews anti-Semitic vitriol!"—be the next big thing? We ask because not everyone was happy in yesterday's beautiful weather—especially not the man dressed as Elmo who had to be taken out of Central Park in an ambulance after going on a disturbing, obscenity-filled rant in the Zoo.
According to authorities help was called after the man, dressed as Elmo, was ejected from the Zoo for pestering tourists and spewing obscenities and then continuing to do so in the park—leading him to be taken for observation. On the plus side, people on Twitter seemed to be more amused than upset?
I figured this incident would be appropriate to mention in this forum.
I'll let people read between the lines as to why.
The link has some amusing, if not disturbing, video clips (NSFW).
