Posted on 01/02/2006 6:34:23 PM PST by RPTMS
A mother in Dallas is one of several parents complaining about a new interactive book for toddlers in which Sesame Street character Elmo asks "who wants to die?" according to a Local 6 News report.
Family members said 16-month-old Miranda Boll's new book, "Potty Time With Elmo," was supposed to teach an interactive lesson using voice commands. However, when the book's buttons are pressed, it reportedly says something it is not supposed to -- "who wants to die?"
"It's a sick joke," mother Angela Bolls said. "If it's a joke then it's a bad one, you know? And it's not necessary. It's inappropriate."
Bolls said she checked another copy of the same book and found that it says something completely different; "Who wants to try to go potty?"
The company that makes the book said it has had several complaints concerning the book, according to the report.

Who wrote the book? Scarface?
NOT my fault!
At least Elmo didnt say "Hillary Clinton Is Our Overlord" L0L
Potty Time With Elmo???
I hope it doesn't have pictures.
Sounds like they employed some writer from the ME.
I'm laughing so hard that I'm choking.....
So many jokes, so little time.........
I am guessing that this is an edgier, more streetwise Elmo...
I heard this on the news this morning, and it does sound like it says that....
LOL!! It's probably a tongue in cheek question aimed at the parents who bought the book. If I had to listen to Elmo, Barney, and half the other crap kids have for educational toys all day or all evening, I'd be ready to jump off a cliff
I know this is terrible, but I can't help but giggle when I think of Elmo saying that...
Yeah, the Gangster Elmo prototype.
If your parents need an Elmo book to potty train you, what are your chances of survival? Elmo has it right!
Die rhymes with try.
"Potty Time with Elmo"
WARNING: Don't tickle Elmo while he's going potty! (very messy)
Has Elmo gone over to the Dark Side of the Force?
