I Hate Him

Barney
I really, really do.

I usually don't succumb to such a strong, negative feeling as hatred. I agree with the philosophy of a certain funny-looking Jedi (one who kicks major ass with a light saber, by the way) who said "Hate leads to suffering." I'm quite a tolerant, laid-back person, if I do say so myself. But I absolutely draw the line at purple, freaky, primitive life forms -- that have sickeningly disgustingly honeyed voices to boot! Why the hell is this misbegotten creature so beloved by so many?

I don't care if he has his own TV show or if he's popular all over the world or if he makes a gazillion bucks. He should go the way of all the other dinosaurs -- and the sooner the better!

Will somebody please do me a favor and find a way to kill this purple freak's sorry ass? And if possible, by coming up with methods that are more satisfying than these?

You're not alone sistah! Even his fellow dinosaurs chose extinction just to get away from him. LOL.

Ei! My sons love Barney! (Although I am sick & tired of it myself) Would you believe I've been asked to build an RC plane with a Barney color scheme in mind? Hahaha! I said NO! Its gonna crash!

the only thing that would make finally getting rid of Barney even better would be knowing that George Bush was inside the costume.

I was somewhat hoping that Barney would engage in an all-out brawl with the Teletubbles, leaving a field of fluff behind.

Lizza said...

Photo,
He gives the legit dinosaurs a bad name!

Corky,
Karma dealt swiftly with me on this. My little one adores this freak. She wanted a plush toy, thank God SM didn't have it in stock at the time.

Gumby,
As the Rolling Stones said, you can't always get what you want. :-D

Justin,
Can you pull some strings with your God and get him to make this purple horror go away?

Freedom Glutton said...

Lol! Lizza! He isnt that bad!

btw, in the hugh grant starrer 'nine months later', he and his friend beat up barney...

after reading your post i think you might b interested in seeing that movie :)

Hello Lizza,

Yaxlich is glad to see that he appears on your list of favourite weblogs.

He too also fails to understand why an ancient, fat dinosaur with a big nose, white teeth and an immensely annoying voice can be so popular. However he did like Copacabana.

Lizza said...

FG,

I remember that movie all too well. I think I fell a little bit in love with Hugh Grant for trying to beat up Barney. :-)

Yaxlich has a sense of humor that I enjoy -- although I do understand that having Betty Swollocks is no laughing matter. I hope his Pant Aid drive is going well. I regret being not able to help contribute to his cause, as PayPal is not available where I live.

Seriously... this is the ONE show I tried to hide from my son because my hateful passion for this dinosaur is about as rich as yours...

But my damn inlaws introduced him to it. And last time we were shopping for dvd's he insisted on buying one. Now, if this damn thing isn't on my tv... he's singing the songs!

Yes... I'll second you. Someone PLEASE kill barney.

hehehehe...

i remember my eldest son asking "Dad, why is he purple? whoever made his costume is dumb." i couldn't agree more. bring him to sesame street and let elmo kick his ass.

Lizza said...

Tainted,
Thanks for the backup! I hope you're feeling better. :-)

Benj,
What a terrific idea! (dreaming of ways each Sesame Street muppet could murder Barney...)

MD said...

i hate all cartoons and all these purple bastard characters!

Lizza said...

Haha MD! I hate only Barney. I actually enjoy many other imaginary creatures. :-)

alessia said...

Barney is annoying. Teletubbies are worse.

Lizza said...

Hi Alessia,

I could stomach those Teletubbies creatures, but not Barney. :-)

Thank you for stopping by!
