'Ted'

Instant Sex Symbol

in Plushie Community

One of the stars of the movie "Ted" is quickly emerging as a sex symbol ... but it ain't Mark Wahlberg ... it's the stuffed animal.

Turns out, Ted has become a breakout star in the Plushie community ... a group of people with a fetish for stuffed animals and things of the furry sort.  

In fact, "Ted" creator Seth MacFarlane has already been contacted by a XXX website that's popular with Plushies, Clips4Sale.com, in the hopes they can acquire the rights to use Ted's image and make him the site's new mascot.

The site fired off a letter to Seth saying, "Not since Alf has there been this kind of excitement over a stuffed animal."

The letter continues, "We are very serious and would like to engage in talks with you at your earliest convenience."

We called Seth for comment -- so far, no word back.

I thought they were called furries. Will never forget that hilarious Entourage episode where Turtle caught site of Drama banging that chick while wearing a bunny costume.

Everybody knows when you take a role with a kid, animal, or animation, your career is on the downward slope. Hey Seth, I hope your movie bombs, you suck.
