    Elect-Me-Elmo by his side, Bloomberg reaches for that extra stroke of luck often sought, but seldom snagged.

    Mr. Mayor if you are going to pick my nose, please don't flick the booger.

    After learning that the mayor of Sesame Street is not subject to term limits, Mayor Bloomberg immediately began “pressing the flesh."

    If you touch my nose one more time I'm gonna bite your finger off, then you'll wish you would have tickled me!

    With just a little work right here, and a haircut, you'll like a mini-Michael Bloomberg! Wouldn't that be great, Elmo!

    Elmo tells Mayor Bloomberg that Count Von Count sends his apologies and really wanted to meet him !!

    Elmo, although you are a minority, you are not as equipped as Sonia Solomayer to serve on the supreme court. You had better stay on Sesame street.

    "Ok, Elmo, let's go. You smell the food, I'll taste it, and then Oscar
    can bring in his trash can to clean up".

    Elmo introduces Tickle Me Bloomberg: you tickle it and it switches its political party affiliation and forces through term-limit amendment legislation.

  21. Paul - East Bay, CA

    Cheeky Elmo explains to Mayer Bloomberg that to touch a persons nose in some cultures can be seen as disrespectful, and that here in America it's seen as a way to contact Swine flu !

    "Press your lips together until they are tight like mine. With this skill you too can have an indefinate term for your Sesame seat."

    Taking every opportunity to promote NYC, Bloomberg plucks the orange off Elmo's face and replaces it with 'the big apple'!

    What do you mean, a muppet can't run for office! You guys have had a pro wrestling freak as governor of Minnesota, a comedian is about to be a Senator for Minnesota (what are you putting in the water up there, any way!), the Terminator as governor of California, a black man is now President, Gopher from 'The Love Boat' was in Congress, and then you had Blago! You really think a muppet can do worse than Blago?!

    Elmo, remember, it's not safe to say "tickle me'" once you leave Sesame Street.

    As Mayor Bloomberg took a moment to say hello to Elmo, he politely tapped him on the nose as a gesture of kindness... Upon which Elmo started shaking and laughing hysterically.
