Another Sex Scandal for Elmo… And Other News.

Elmo Sex Abuse

Elmo gets hit with another sex scandal. A fifth man has filed a lawsuit against Kevin Clash, the former voice of Elmo on Sesame Street. The man alleges that when he was 16 he and Clash engaged in sexual contact after meeting on a gay phone chat line. The sex was consensual but the lawsuit argues that since the legal age of consent in New York is 17, it wasn’t really consensual.

HandjobCanadians got a little too excited at the Toronto Blue Jays game opener last night. As the camera panned to the fans, one fan couldn’t contain himself and started simulating giving a hand job to who I hope was his buddy and not some stranger. I guess he’s saving the blow job simulation for the World Series. Oh wait, the Jays will never make it that far. Deadspin

Of the change, Fallon said: “I’m really excited to host a show that starts today instead of tomorrow.” If those are the kind of jokes he has in store, I think the network may have made a mistake….
