I'm in a spiral-of-doom where I'm weak so move less which makes me weaker, etc. Trying to break out. I heard something on the radio today which made me laugh. As far as I know I've never seen Elmo, but I do know it's a red puppet on Sesame Street. A man was analysing the potential for fallout from the Clash scandal to Sesame Street, and concluded that there would likely be no damage to Seasame Street 'or to Elmo himself.' Hah! Reminds me of that anecdote (Merv Griffin? dunno) regarding Edgar Bergen performing: the boom mic operator shifting the mic from Bergen to Charley McCarthy and back throughout the act.
