Pickle Me Elmo   (+12, -2)  [vote for, against]
A toy, a public service announcement, and a muppet all rolled into one annoying package.

Pickle Me Elmo is the latest installment in the popular "Tickle Me Elmo" series of toys. This fuzzy animatronic doll is designed to teach kiddies the perils of drinking and intoxication.

Pickle Me Elmo is just Elmo with an alcoholic beverage (buyer's choice) in hand. When the toddlers squeeze PM Elmo's tummy, he raises it to his gaping mouth and chugs loudly, burping afterwards. Pickle Me Elmo always giggles, but the volume and frequency of his giggles increase as he drinks more and more. He also becomes more self-destructive as the little ones squeeze him again and again.

After a certain degree, Elmo's plastic eyelids begin to wobble. Then he starts complaining loudly about his troubled relationship with Zoe. This series of events continues to escalate until poor Elmo either passes out, gets into a car accident, or stumbles drunkenly off the table, after which he is deactivated until he is turned on again. Seeing their beloved Elmo in such a sorry state should be enough to rout any jaded youngster from a life of alcoholism.

Closer to what I thought this idea would entail. [jutta, Sep 08 2009]

I'd like to see one of those "Chambers of Horrors" glass specimen jars. Through the haze of a green-tinged, slightly misty liquid, one can just make out the features of a horribly distorted, almost bald muppet, preserved for scientific posterity.

Ha, and next to them, folded up in a *huge* demijohn, all that can be made out is the bright yellow feathers, and striped legs of what might be described only as some kind of Large Avian creature...

next: "Trickle me Elmo" , "Hammer a Sickle me Elmo" and lastly "Fickle be Elmo. You fill in the blanks.

I thought this would be a pickling device in the guise of Elmo. Putting the little rat in a tightly closed jar sounds nice, though.

Ha! Great link, jutta.

Normzone, that link is amazing. Amazing! I recently decided to put a bunch of fictional character's signatures up on a big petition list for their existence, for no reason though I think tequila was involved. Anyways, Elmo's name was up there for about five seconds before his condescension and archetypal evilities began eating at the pieces of my brain that still exist. Before I knew it, the petition piece evolved into shreds of nothing and gobs of broken red marker lay all over the heap as if somehow, somewhere, lay an Elmo sufficiently off the existence list drowning in his own furry red blood. Free at last, free at last...

I could have just as easily set the whole thing on fire, but I'm trying to curb my pyromania these days.

This idea makes me angry for a wide variety of reasons

Elmo is so nice & soft and lovey and he already has an apparently always intoxicated creepy pedophile sidekick Mr. Noodles

What about Mr. Noodles!!!

You get angry easily, I take it [vfrackis], or intoxicated, too.
