    Tonight, difficult child was watching a violent, real-life movie called Hamburger Hill. I thought it was too much for him, and husband commented, "We'll make you watch Barney, instead."
    difficult child said, "No way! Barney hides drugs in his tail!"

    husband and I laughed SO hard.
    difficult child was completely serious.

    I Googled it, and it turns out there was a rumor that the actor who played Barney supposedly hid drugs in the tail, but it isn't true.

    How would I know unless I read it in a tabloid? :laugh:

    He probably heard it at school. The good news is that he wanted nothing to do with the drug-pushing dino.

    Didn't you guys know? Barney is Satan. Read the following:

    Barney is Satan
    MATHEMATICAL PROOF (as in Geometry)
    Given: Barney is a cute purple dinosaur
    Prove: Barney is Satan

    Step 1: The Romans had no letter "U" so they used "V'' instead for printing.

    Therefore, the Roman representation for Barney would be CVTE PVRPLE DINOSAVR

    Step 2: Taking CVTE PVRPLE DINOSAVR, and extracting the Roman neumerals, we have:

    C V V L D I V

    Step 3: The decimal equivalent of these Roman neumerals would be:

    100 5 5 50 500 1 5

    Step 4: Adding these numbers together would produce:


    Step 5: 666 is the number of the beast

    Therefore: Barney is Satan


    The first time I read this, I laughed like a loon! People have too much time on their hands! (Although - I never liked Barney!).
