Also...

Bart - "maybe they should use some cartoons from the last 50 years"

Homer - "Son, this is a tradition. If they start building a balloon for every flash-in-the-pan cartoon character, you'll turn the parade into a farce!"

Earguy: I'm reading that Sesame Street's Elmo will be on a float this year, but not a giant balloon. I wonder how TV coverage will handle it.

-Announcers do not mention Elmo at all, anything we see on TV will be fleeting, in a wide shot, or accidental.
-"Loved by children around the world, Elmo is on the float, dancing with his friends" - Ignore the situation.
-A brief mention of the problems Kevin Clash has had, but in spite of that, Children's Television Workshop has vowed to carry on.

I doubt the third one would happen, But do we want to take bets?


I'd pay to see option 4... they have a young, metrosexual announcer who breaks down in tears, screaming "OH GOD, NOW I REMEMBER! HE KEPT SAYING 'ELMO LOVES YOU! HA HA HA HA HA HA HA! THAT TICKLES!" AS HE THRUST HIS THROBBING COCK IN MY VIRGIN ANUS! IT'S NOT A CHICKEN, IT'S A BAAAAYYYBBBBYYYYY! I REMEMBERRRRRR!', and they just cut to commercial.

WGN is showing the Chicago parade, which is like the NYC parade but with a lot more cheese and not as good.
