Oh very fluffy dear, Poland!
We were all very happy when Poland got to join the European Union especially when it turned out that they were all hard-working, qualified plumbers which was just what we needed.
Unfortunately, it seems that the government that they have left running the country while they are all out has gone a little bit – and this is putting it kindly – strange.
They have already had a go at bringing in their own version of Nasty Old Conservatory policy, "Section 28".
And the MEPs of the Union have had to give them a stern warning over homophobia!
But now they have tipped over the edge into CRAZY-PERSON land. They are going to send the Teletubbies to the educational psychologists to see if they are TOO GAY!
You know, most NORMAL people when they first see the Teletubbies ask "what DRUGS were they on?" rather than "who could they be going to bed with?"
Still, if that is the sort of thing that you OBSESS about, then you end up reading it into EVERYTHING!
"I noticed he was carrying a woman's handbag," spokesperson for children's rights in Poland, Ewa Sowinska told a magazine. "At first, I didn't realise he was a boy."
And if you look VERY CLOSELY, Miss Winksa, you will see that he has a TELEVISION in his TUMMY and NO RUDE BITS!!
Why are you even TRYING to ascribe any kind of human behaviour to this big purple androgynous anthropomorphic walking television person?
Now, I could be wrong, but I think that someone has just been browsing the Wibbly Wobbly Web too much.
Do you remember the dear departed Mr Jerry Falwell? No? Perhaps you remember the racist, bigoted, homophobic, mad as a box of frogs, religious monomaniac Mr Jerry Falwell, co-founder of the Immoral Minority then…
GENUINE Mr Jerry quote: "This 'turn the other cheek' business is all well and good but it's not what Jesus fought and died for."
Well, I thought that I remembered this Tinky-Winky double-thinky from somewhere and GUESS WHAT: it was straight out of Mr Jerry's HAT:
"He is purple - the gay-pride colour; and his antenna is shaped like a triangle - the gay-pride symbol."
Yes, Mr Falwell, and you are SILVER – the colour of the TIN FOIL HAT people!
Daddy Alex reminds me that we have been watching "Children's Telly on Trial", and the story of "Ivor the Engine" creator Oliver Postgate. Back in the 1970's he too was accosted by "educational psychologists".
He told them they could pscht-i-cough pscht-i-cough off.
