    How did Barney escape the hail of FBI bullets? Is it too late to try again?

    Barney is Satan and there’s mathematical proof:

    1) Start with Barney’s mark, his tag line, the phrase ”CUTE PURPLE DINOSAUR”.

    2) Convert to Latin spelling by replacing the U’s with V’s (the Latin alphabet doesn’t have U only V). Result: “CVTE PVRPLE DINOSAVR”.

    3) Extract all letters that are used for Roman numerals (again it’s a Latin thing). Result: “CV V L DI V “.

    4) Convert these to modern numerals: C=100, V=5, L=50, D=500, I=1. Result: 100+5+5+50+500+1+5=666.

    5) 666=The mark of Satan. QED.

    Barney is actually a newly discovered species: Pretendosaurus barneyi, according to this erudite paper.

    I’m also glad they never made “Smurf’s Up!”

    I liked “Barney in Jurassic Park” better. I can still hear the theme song in my head:

    “I love you…FOR DINNER!”

    I quit donating to KCET when they replaced Doctor Who with Barney. Play the reruns again. He’s a time lord, who cares what century it is?

    @Magasek And How exactly did you find out about this, shall we say, stunning, revelation? @ChukLitl They did??? I loved Doctor Who! Although what time slot was this that they could replace a timetraveler show with a little kids’ show?

    I had such a belly laugh at that I almost dropped my netbook. That’s a keeper.

    Early Saturday. First they moved the Doctor from 1PM to 8AM. They peaked in ‘87. Coincidence?

    @Jason, I read it somewhere about a decade ago, when Barney first hit the big time. I can’t remember where, but it’s the kind of thing that sticks with you. At the time, I was working on a project that had a terribly written engineering specification that we had to follow held in a 4 inch thick 3-ring binder. We hated it so much we started refering to it as a Satanic Bible. After I saw the above proof, I cut out a picture of Barney and glued it to the front of the binder.

    @Chuk, You go man! No one replaces Dr. Who…least of all Barney.
