New Tickle Me Elmo Recalled for Only Tickling Boys Under 18

As we approach the height of holiday shopping, one of the most popular kids’ toys has been pulled from store shelves. The new version of Tickle Me Elmo has been recalled after it was reported the toy was only tickling boys under 18.

Tyco Toys was extremely optimistic about sales of their new Tickle Me Elmo, which unlike previous versions that encouraged the kids to tickle the doll, the new version of Elmo tickled the kids. Unfortunately, a few days after hitting shelves, parents had complained that the toy only worked with younger boys and that the toy was uninterested in tickling girls at all.

Single mother Brenda Jackson bought one of the toys before the recall and gave it to her daughter as a birthday present. She told us, “When the doll wouldn’t do anything, I told my daughter that perhaps the batteries were dead. But when my eight year-old son was about to check the batteries, Elmo went on a tickling spree. Though as soon as my daughter was holding the doll again, the toy froze.

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez Both Have New Boyfriends After Split

Justin BieberJustin Bieber and Selena Gomez may have broken up but in the week since their split, both stars already have new special guys in their lives. Gomez has been seen around town holding hands with an unknown gentleman and Bieber has been seen with several young men.

Bieber was seen dancing at an LA Nightclub with “Twilight” star Taylor Lautner. Witnesses told us they were seen smooching before they left the club through the back exit and left in the back of a limo. The next day, the limo driver told us he spent over an hour steam cleaning stains from the backseats of the vehicle. He wouldn’t divulge what the stains were as he thought that would be a breach of the stars’ privacy.

Lautner wasn’t the only guy Bieber seemingly got it on with. Openly gay “Lord of the Rings” star Ian McKellen told BS Gossip that he had an intimate encounter with the young singer. He said, “I don’t want to give too many details as I don’t want to affect Justin’s reputation. All I will say is that his bum is even smoother than I thought it would be.”

We asked Selina Gomez how she felt about her ex fooling around with various men so soon after their break-up. She said, “We’re not together anymore so he can do whatever he wants. As long as he stays away from Taylor Lautner ‘cause his ass in mine!” We won’t tell her if you won’t.
