I love Jim Henson, I love Sesame Street, but I just can’t stand freaking Elmo. Maybe it’s because I worked in a toy store for a while and people were always asking about Tickle Me Elmos. Maybe it’s because he always speaks in the third person. But whatever the case, it fills me with much malicious joy to see Ricky Gervais preventing that annoying little red monster from going to sleep. Elmo deserves it, anyway, for not knowing Ricky is a celebrity.
