Yawn… or 'Gay Place' Not Above Polack Jokes?

Tinky Winky making gay news… again?

Oh those wacky, increasingly scary Poles! Apparently there is quite a delay in satellite signals between here and the ex-Soviet Bloc, as Polish government children’s rights department spokeswoman Ewa Sowinska is just now catching up to the trumped up Tubbie-controversy surrounding the sexuality of one Tinky Winky, that strapping, oft-maligned purple pal from Teletubbieland. You know, the one with the triangle antennae and… the purse, ummm, errr, magic bag.

"I noticed he was carrying a woman’s handbag," Sowinska said. "At first, I didn’t realize he was a boy."

We're just wondering if Sowinska believes in reincarnation and if she felt any strange presences entering her body 'round about May 15?
