The story you're about to read is not (entirely) true. It is, however, more accurate than most things on network television.

Sesame Street has pulled a controversial video featuring pop star Katy Perry and beloved Muppet Elmo, citing parental complaints that Ms. Perry’s ample cleavage would scar the psyches of impressionable preschoolers.

However, eSarcasm has learned that the Childrens Television Workshop killed the pair’s duet on "Hot N Cold" for an entirely different reason — to kid the lid on a simmering sex scandal.

Ms. Perry has been accused of playing "Tickle me, Elmo" without her Muppet co-star’s consent.

"Miss Katy stick whole hand up Elmo’s poot-poot," the furry red Muppet claims. "Elmo not walk right for week."

Speaking through representatives, Ms. Perry described her relationship with the vibrating plush toy as "consensual," adding that Elmo was "an energetic and inventive lover, who will probably feel much better about all of this after he’s had a nap."

These accounts were partially confirmed by Elmo.

"Miss Katy used lots of batteries," the scruffy Muppet said. "Elmo vewwy tired."

Although the popular Sesame Street star looks and acts like a precocious three year old, he is in fact 26 — well beyond an age where Ms. Perry might be prosecuted under New York’s child abuse statutes.

Others, however, cast doubt on Elmo’s account, citing an earlier scandal in 2008 when sex tapes of Elmo enthusiastically pleasuring a teddy bear were circulated across the Net.

Here’s the controversial video featuring Ms. Perry and the furry red Muppet:
