Where did you get this factoid, that half of all Georgian marriages are 45 year olds, marrying 18 year olds, who knew each other when they were 43 and 16? :smt102


Sorry :oops:

Probably closer to two thirds....

Clash has trained enough stand ins at this point that he doesn't need to touch the character ever again.

But honestly, nothing about this case sounded right from the beginning and yes it seems that six figures have made it already disappear quickly which makes things worse on both sides. You have someone who does really great things for children like granting countless make a wish requests and even goes on the radio in character to comfort children during hurricane sandy to be suddenly raked over the coals. It just sucks.

Agreed. I've seen (and recorded) the documentary about him, and he's a great guy.

It's unfortunate, but if you're a public figure, particularly in the children's entertainment industry, you should probably just fuck people your own age. I mean, legal or not, it's just not gonna be great for your career. It comes off like he was grooming this hot young twink, just waiting for him to become "legal," and that's not what people want to think about fucking Elmo. But then, when you spend more than half your life with your hand up a puppet's ass, talking baby talk, I guess you just gotta get that poison out.

If this was some movie star fucking an 18 year old chick, it would barely be a story, so in that respect, it's pretty fucked up.

Or a tv star, like when the star of heroes was in his mid thirties and was banging his barely-eighteen costar, the one who played his niece? :)

Right. It's a double standard which is fucked up, but he should still know better.

he probably never expected it to go public, and honestly who knows the voice actor of Elmo anyways? Who would be looking this stuff up?

It's not like he pulled a Woody Allen or something, which is just twisted.

the only reason its a "scandal" is because A) he's the voice/puppeteer behind Elmo and B) he's gay...

I'd wager if it were an 18 year old girl, we wouldn't even be debating if he'd lose his job over it. Hell, I wonder if it would even be a story, just a sidebar in Page 6 of a cheap gossip rag.

Agreed with both of you, but still creepy to be 50 and sleep with a person who you knew as a teenager as soon as they turn 18. It's not like someone turns 18 and you go "suddenly, I find this person sexually attractive."

More disturbing is that this sort of predatory behavior is encouraged and celebrated when it's an older man and a young woman.
