“i just heard the most amazing thing on NPR. so umm, apparently sesame street put out a potty training book, featuring elmo, and it has a little computer chip in it so that as you're reading the book, elmo will, ya know, give witty comments and things. and at one point he says "uh oh, who has to go?" but due to, and i quote, 'cheap computer chips' he actually says in some- to some people "uh oh, who wants to die?" ......... WHAT THE FUCK?!?!? how do you-- i can't even imagine. umm so i had to share that with everyone, because that made my night. bye bye!”
There was an article on Fark about this the other day.....whoever they talked to at the publishing company blamed it on, "the emmense amount of compression of data to make the audio still sound clean on such a small scale," or something. I think that pretty much means someone was fucking around and no one caught them.
I guess the books are becoming something of a rarity because stores are asking people to pull them off shelves. But, yeah, I really want this book too. Hilarious.
