Elmo attacked at Guitar Center

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by onlyoneZ, Sep 27, 2010.

  1. I did a search and didn't see anyone post this.
    Lemme guess, Elmo was trying to play a bad version of Stairway to Heaven? Or even worse, the riff from smoke on the water. Over and over and over again, and out of tune. I'd kick his ass for that.


    WINTER PARK, Fla. -- The Winter Park Police Department broke up a fight Saturday after a man attacked another man who was dressed as Elmo.

    The attack occurred about 3 p.m. Saturday when the man dressed like Elmo went into the Guitar Center at the Winter Park Village, police said.

    Police said the man was hired to perform as Elmo at a children's event at the Winter Park Village and took a break. Police said the man was browsing in the guitar store when the assailant walked in.

    According to police, the attacker went right for Elmo, causing a disturbance in the store and starting a fight.

    Elmo was able to fight off his attacker as punches were thrown and broke a few of the assailant's fingers, police said.

    Police said they broke up the fight and took the attacker to Florida Hospital Orlando, where he was treated for the broken fingers, then Baker Acted -- temporarily detained for a mental health evaluation.

    Police said Elmo was not hurt, and no children saw the fight.

    According to Winter Park police Lt. Wayne Farrell, he said he has never seen an Elmo attack in his 37 years of experience.

    All he would've had to do was tickle Elmo to take him down...no need for violence! Geez!

    I especially like that Elmo broke the guy's fingers! :D
  3. Probably retaliation for taking that Kate Perry skit off the air.

    Which begs the question, did anyone else see her SNL skit?

    All I can think about when I hear about Elmo is a stretched out face on a shirt.

    And it's nice.
  6. That line cracked me up :D

    Don't-you-tickle-me Elmo.
  15. How would you like to be the guy who has to say: "I started a fight with Elmo from Sesame Street and he whooped my ass"?

    I'm the parent of a disabled child who has been infatuated with Elmo for the past nine years. Our house is littered with dozens of Elmos.

    While I can understand the desire to jump Elmo, he is "from the street" (albeit Sesame Street) so you'd better bring it if you're going to roll up on him. :p

    Maybe Elmo was playing "Stairway to Heaven" on the guitar at GC? Or maybe he asked the guy "what's the best bass for metal?" I can understand the attack a lot better in that context.

    I wish someone had their camera phone and videoed this.

    Sounds surreal. Like something out of an acid trip.
  19. I guess that means they're seeing a sudden increase in the frequency of Elmo attacks.

    Exactly! You don't want Elmo to call his homie, Grover, for help. Grover is ****ing CRAZY!!!
