Holiday hitmaker Dr. Elmo singer of the silly Christmas classic Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer has gotten into a heap of trouble with protective parents over the years.
Dr. Elmos granny-killing tune was recently used as an iPhone application, and hearing the song in a high-tech way got a new generation of kids asking their parents what happened to Grandma.
Dr. Elmo says, Children thought their grandmother actually got killed and parents have been complaining because of it.
However, Dr. Elmo assures that if anything, the song can help prepare tots for the time when Granny really does kick the bucket.
He explains, I dont see why they couldnt use it for that. Just give the kids a glass of egg nog and tell them it was time for her to move on.
Though the song is fabricated, Dr. Elmo says reindeer-related Grandma deaths have been known to happen around the holidays.
