Nobody likes to be called a dummy by a dummy.

How about this, there's not been such kerfuffle since the Teletubbies were the focus of raised eyebrows.

Some years ago, Walmart was manufacturing, importing and distributing counterfeit teletubbies. They called their counterfeits "bubbly chubbies." When the owners of the copyrights/trademarks of the teletubbies started legal proceedings to get the counterfeits impounded and destroyed, as well as forcing walmart to cease and desist the counterfeiting, all of a sudden "tinky winky is gay" started getting broadcast around America. When the legal battles were settled, the "tinky winky is gay" issue blew over.

So, years later, we have televangelists proclaiming another cartoon character to be the spawn of homosexuality. I would look to see what walmart is counterfeiting yet again.
