Mariah Carey’s ‘kiss my bling’ stance doesn’t put a smile on Elmo’s face. (See left) He hates when a woman throws out her left hand and wiggles her fingers to show off a huge rock that signifies her self-worth. (And the presumed net worth of her new husband or fiance.) Elmo is a muppet and he can’t afford diamonds. Not to mention the fact that he has no pockets and can’t save money.

Seriously, that showing off the ring crap needs to go. Even Mariah Carey--who could probably afford to swallow a small diamond every morning like a multi-vitamin--buys into the anti-feminist ideal that the bigger the cushion cut, the better the bride.


According to, the average carat size of a diamond engagement ring is highest in California, (specificallly, the La Jolla/Del Mar areas) at 2.75 carats. In Europe, it’s .30 carats.
Maybe Elmo needs to move to Berlin.
