(This video works best played with the lights down and the sound way up.)
Also, Bert is evil!
We have reason to believe that Bert of Sesame Street is evil and you should keep your children away from him. Here in these pages are collected incriminating images and documents that prove that Bert is not the lovable harmless geek he so successfully makes us think he is.There is much more about Bert on this site. Don’t fool yourself into beliving what you thought you knew about Bert. He is evil!!!
The evidence part I
Collected here are documents and images that show that Bert is Evil. Many of these documents were submitted by anonymous sources who choose not to be revealed. All the files have been verified and cross-referenced with the FBI and other Intelligence Agencies.
It is difficult or impossible to respond coherently to something that is incoherent.

Book of the Week:
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Classic Regency Romance — Now with Ultraviolent Zombie Mayhem!, by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith.
“This may be the most wacky by-product of the busy Jane Austen fan-fiction industry — at least among the spin-offs and pastiches that have made it into print. In what’s described as an ‘expanded edition’ of Pride and Prejudice, 85 percent of the original text has been preserved but fused with ‘ultraviolent zombie mayhem.’ For more than 50 years, we learn, England has been overrun by zombies, prompting people like the Bennets to send their daughters away to China for training in the art of deadly combat, and prompting others, like Lady Catherine de Bourgh, to employ armies of ninjas. Added to the familiar plot turns that bring Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy together is the fact that both are highly skilled killers, gleefully slaying zombies on the way to their happy ending. Is nothing sacred? Well, no, and mash-ups using literary classics that are freely available on the Web may become a whole new genre. What’s next? Wuthering Heights and Werewolves?”
