There is a newer (as in sometime in the last 15 years) Character named Murray. My BIL was over one night last week. He commented that the character looked just like a "Hairy Elmo."
To my jaded ear, that totally sounded like a euphemism for a weird sex act (i.e. the mythic and reprehensible dirty sanchez).
The short list of Sesame Street characters that could be sexual euphemisms:
The Hairy Elmo
A Bert and Ernie
A Grouch. As in "Hey, I gave'er a Grouch. Right in da trash can!"
Flipping the Big Bird
A Super Grover
Hiding the Snuffy
Going around the Elmo's World.
Saying hi to Mr. Noodle
A Guy Smiley.
The Shiny Gordon.
If only I could convince my kids to watch House, V, Project Runway or Top Chef Masters, none of this would've happened.
I blame them.
Please feel free to add to the above list.
