Elmo, Thankfully, Goes Missing

Walmart has declared missing a shipment of 100 Elmo T.M.X. dolls. The annoying-as-fuck toys went missing en route to a Walmart location in Bentonville, AR.

“”We’re continuing the search for them,” she said. Wal-Mart is also offering a trip to a comedy club in New York City as a reward for returning the shipment.”

Comedy club? For hijacking a truck? Hmmm, it’s tempting to suspect foulplay, but we smell PR stunt. Is it illegal to steal your own shipment of Elmos and sell them on Ebay? Only if you report it as a crime…

From CNN:

“However, officials at the Bentonville police department told CNNMoney.com that they were not currently aware of any missing Elmo report from Wal-Mart.”

    Clearly a publicity stunt. Stop feeding the Elmo-mania, people. It’s just a stupid toy.

    A trip to an NYC comedy club? For reals? Wal-Mart is really value oriented. You can’t walk 8 steps in Times Square without being offered free admission to some sucky comedy club.

    Hmmm, seems somebody from Wal-Mart is taking a page from the book Jennifer Government.

    Why does this remind me of the warehouse-full-of-Barbies-that-burned-so-they-could-charge-more-$$$ of 10 years ago? I think they were those damm Christmas Barbies….

    Don’t worry everyone, I’m sure they have Bert and Ernie chasing them down.
