[I heard somebody on NPR yesterday doing a marvelous job of shredding the
Barney haters -- her main thesis was that Barney was intent on communicating
with babies, not his adult antagonists.  It made perfect sense (and it's about
time something made sense).  Of course, anything this popular has got to be
ready for a little teasing...  -psl]

Proof of the week:

 Given: Barney is a CUTE PURPLE DINOSAUR
 Prove: Barney is Satanic

       The Romans had no letter 'U', and used 'V' instead for
       printing, meaning the Roman representation would for
       Barney would be: CVTE PVRPLE DINOSAVR


       Extracting the Roman numerals, we have:
       CV    V  L  DI    V

       And their decimal equivalents are:
       100 5 5 50 500 1 5

       Adding those numbers produces: 666.

       666 is the number of the Beast.
