Elmo Testifies Before Congress

from the symbolic-on-more-levels-than-one dept.

Sesame Street’s Elmo, the perpetually three-year-old Muppet with no impulse control, testified before Congress yesterday, telling the House’s Education Appropriations Subcommittee that funding for children’s music education was an important issue. As ymatt, who brought the story to my attention, observed, “I guess Congress is used to having puppets give testimony.” I also like the nice angle the photographers got as Elmo tried to eat his microphone; makes a nice followup to yesterday’s photo of Christie Kerr kissing her golf trophy, don’t you think?
