The innocence of Muppets

How to make it up to Kevin Clash? Now that we’ve all had confirmed the “adult consensual” relationship involving the hand that controls Elmo (and the voice!), how can it all be put back to a just world where no one contemplated bad Elmo touches?

I think we should give Elmo the gift of proper syntax and the use of the first person. “I, Elmo, am a creature deserving of dignity!” he might say, sealing his PR triumph. How would you guys make him feel better?
