WARSAW (Reuters) - Poland's conservative government took its drive to curb what it sees as homosexual propaganda to the small screen on Monday, taking aim at Tinky Winky and the other Teletubbies.
In comments reminiscent of criticism by the late U.S. evangelist Jerry Falwell, she was quoted as saying: "I noticed (Tinky Winky) has a lady's purse, but I didn't realize he's a boy."
"At first I thought the purse would be a burden for this Teletubby ... Later I learned that this may have a homosexual undertone."
Apparently, the Polish government is launching a "probe" to determine if Tinky-Winky is indeed Gay. It doesn't say what portion of Tinky-Winky's body the probe will be aimed at, although come to think of it I've always found The Teletubbies such a totally loathsome pile of crap that I wouldn't mind seeing medical instruments driven straight up all their asses.
And here's a heart-felt apology by Michael Colton, who accidentally launched the whole "Tinky-Winky is gay" controversy in the pages of Salon Magazine during the late 1990s.
Incidentally, the Polish Government also outlaws "homo-agitation" in schools. The jokes almost write themselves, although I think the term "homogitation" would have been far more giggle-worthy.
