My DP today is this…
It should be no surprise to anybody that my hero is Elmo.
Elmo is a beloved character, or was, on Sesame Street for the better part of three decades. He was a red-skinned puppet in a world where red-skinned people are mistreated by the government and lied to on a daily basis.
He overcame obstacles, some of which much more than any one of us would have been able to overcome. After all, he had to work for almost thirty years with a gay child molester’s hand up his ass.
That’s right folks, Kevin Clash, the man in the picture above with Elmo, the man who has made Elmo move and voiced him all of these years, is a gay child molester.
How would you like to work under THOSE conditions?
Because of this, Elmo my friend, YOU are my hero. There will be nobody to top that, I believe. Sadly, Elmo went out a bad way, as he was scrapped for a pair of designer boots. So instead of some dude’s hand up his ass, now you can stick your foot up there.
