Walmart Mysteriously Finds Hidden Stash of Elmos

We hope we are not dignifying this obvious publicity stunt with coverage, but Walmart has “found” 4,000 of those stupid Extreme Tickle Me Elmo pieces of crap and will be “make [ing] the toys available “around noon E.T. on a first come, first serve basis” for $39.97 apiece.” So, if you’re one of those people who wants a zombified psychotic Elmo beast that will amuse your brat of a kid for about 10 seconds total, here’s your big chance to hit refresh 300 times and still not get one. Have fun. —MEGHANN MARCO
