Elmo

Category: Rated PG-13

This story was sent by David O’Brennan. It has been around for a couple of years since the popularity of the toy.


There is a factory in America which makes the Tickle-Me Elmo toys. The toy laughs when you tickle it under the arm. A new employee is hired at the Tickle-Me Elmo factory and she reports for her first day promptly at 0800.

The next day at 08:45 there is a knock at the Personnel Manager’s door. The Foreman from the assembly line throws open the door and begins to rant about the new employee. He complains that she is incredibly slow and the whole line is backing up, putting the entire production line behind schedule.

The Personnel Manager decides he should see this for himself, so the 2 men march down to the factory floor. When they get there the line is so backed up that there are Tickle Me Elmo’s all over the factory floor and they’re really beginning to pile up.

At the end of the line stands the new employee surrounded by mountains of Tickle-Me Elmos. She has a roll of plush red fabric and a huge bag of small marbles. The 2 men watch in amazement as she cuts a little piece of fabric, wraps it around two marbles and begins to carefully sew the little package between Elmo’s legs.

The Personnel Manager bursts into laughter. After several minutes of hysterics he pulls himself together and approaches the woman. “I’m sorry,” he says to her, barely able to keep a straight face, “but, I think that you misunderstood the instructions I gave you yesterday…

Your job is to give Elmo two test tickles.”
