Broflake meltdown

Larry David was waiting to do a spot on the Today Show while the Elmo puppet was there to discuss mental health. David suddenly couldn’t bear the Elmo voice a moment longer, zoomed over and briefly wrung Elmo’s neck.

Okay, on a live segment about mental health, maybe not the best judgment, but I think we can all agree this is an overreaction.

Wil Wheaton, if you don’t recall, is a 51-year-old man who played the child character on Star Trek: Next Generation. Fans hated the character, I guess. I wasn’t a fan of any of it. He’s grown up with be a loud, whiny D-lister.

Now that I think about it, were they discussing mental health with under-fives or were they using a puppet intended for under-fives to discuss mental health with adults? It smells funny.

Now, Larry, kindly please go and do Barney.

Yes, Wheaton was and is insufferable. I saw him in a couple of those icky shows (not on my own initiative I assure you) and occasionally see online where somebody gets righteously snarky over something Wil posts on Xwitter, and generally think, “what a twat.”

Wesley’s character was also a male Mary Sue who had magical powers. He proceeded to get extra insufferable after some of his board game and other online ventures were somewhat successful.
Mark Hamill has gone off the rails a bit but he actually has talent. Wheaton is more famous because of the friends he has. Sweet gig that he’s gone and shat on.

Elmo is a muppet.

That’s Henson Speak for puppet.

If we find out Elmo was there to discuss butt stuff I won’t be surprised.

Elmo and his dad...”
That right there is hilarious.
I think Sheldon Cooper said it best, the Jar-Jar Binks of the Star Trek universe.

If it were not for his series of guest shots on Big Bang Theory, I think most people outside of Sci-Fi conventions would have forgotten him.
