    The show is for kids so that's fair enough.

    The thing about them mentioning the lyrics, I don't think anything is wrong with the lyrics and kids wouldn't even think anything of it. But the fact that her boobs are practically falling out probably wasn't the best idea. But whoever allowed her to wear that outfit is a doofus LOL.

    This banning incident should get her even MORE "exposure".

    Karen, you are the queen of double entendres. :P

    Chalk it up to lessons learned
    Miles walked and bridges burned
    Just another memory in the back of my mind
    Lock it up, throw away the key
    Forget the things you promised me
    Just another thing I can't forget
    Just another thing I won't forget

    Mmmhh..... Why did I like it and thought it was simple and fun and even pretty innocent? I mean, I know Katy is no innocent at all hahah, and I was worried her boobs would come out during all her running in the video, but still, all this outcry because of all the possible dirty meanings of the word "play"?
    Almost nothing on TV is really suitable for kids nowadays, so they (the parents) either send their kids to play outside in their backyards (which would always be the healthiest choice for them), or they start having more sex because they totally got horny and twisted watching Katy in this video.

    PS: Oh, and Elmo is totally gay, so OF COURSE he wants to play dress up.

    Believe it or not, I think the main thing that did it was all those comments on YouTube talking about her cleavage. People make too big a deal out of YouTube comments. I didn't even know people actually read those. I've always imagined what it would be like if someone like Britney, Christina Aguilera, Ashlee, or even JoJo appeared on the show, and I think Katy is the closest they've had. And so I guess THIS is what happens. It's happened where a celebrity would be asked to change their outfit, so I wonder why they didn't do that this time. Maybe Sesame Workshop WANTED this kind of publicity...
