With the whole Kevin Clash (the puppeteer behind Elmo) scandal, the once beloved children's furry-buddy officially lost his Sesame Street-Cred that took decades to build. So, is it appropriate that I look like I skinned a Muppet and made a coat out of it? Too soon? Regardless, I find faux fur to be just as provoking, sometimes even more so, than real fur. If Gaga can pull off a Kermit The Frog Muppet jacket, can I pull off an Elmo one? Where's Jean Charles de Castelbajac when you need him? Amongst all the media commotion, I couldn't help but think that over the years, Elmo's touched more than just the heart of kids; oops, that was totes-inapprops. Guilty! Just not as guilty as Kevin.
