Barney Torture 

US interrogators are using the purple dinosaur's theme to break Iraqi prisoners.

They are simple words, plain in meaning and warm in tone: "I love you. You love me. We're best friends like friends should be. With a great big hug and a kiss from me to you, won't you say you love me too?" They are also the words with which US military interrogators are planning to break the will of Iraqi prisoners.
Believe me, if Barney had been walking the earth when the Geneva conventions were drawn up, there would be laws against this sort of thing.

I suppose there will be an outcry in the U.S. against this too, after all parents have been suffering this torture for many years at the hand of their children. Unfortunately, the Barney song is even more insidious than that. Just reading that article has got the song stuck in my head... and I don't know how to get rid of it! Make it stop!

Not sure who to blame for this terrible plague that has beseeched the American populace? Looking for someone to strike revenge on for this terrible phenomena? Look no further than Matt Warren... he confessed a few days ago. Now he's fearing reprisals.
