Today's paper ran this quote from Jerry Falwell, on Mr. Tinky Winky, one of the stars of TV's "Teletubbies":
"He is purple--the gay pride color; and his antenna is shaped like a triangle--the gay pride symbol."
But wait! What about the Vertex logo:
It is purple--the gay pride color; and it is triangular--the gay pride symbol.
And the president of the company is named La La.
Oh wait, that's not right.
Could this be more than a coincidence? Could Vertex be, in fact, a front for the Teletubbies? I called a little while ago, and asked for Dr. Winkie. They claimed they didn't have a Dr. Winkie on staff. But they could be lying. I wonder what kind of reaction I'd get if I called and announced that I was Dr. Noo Noo. Would they patch me through to the president on the red phone?
Where do you people come up with this stuff? I just spent five minutes with a PR rep from Vertex and I can assure you that: 1) The president's name is John Boder, or something like that, not La La; 2) The logo was designed by an eminent design firm in Boston; 3) There is absolutely no employee at Vertex with a first name of Tinkey or a last name of Winkey.
Of course, she could have been lying, but why would she bother?
She also said they don't have any red phone. She laughed when I suggested this and told me that all their phones are beige, even Mr. Boder's.
Plus, if Vertex was somehow related to Teletubbies, don't you think their stock price would be about 10 times what it is now?
People: THINK before you post, OK?

Oh, very good analysis. I called the company and they denied wrongdoing, so I guess they must be innocent. Brilliant Dr. Whatsup. I suppose you also believe OJ and Bill Clinton? In fact, why don't you spend your entire life helping the thousands of entirely innocent people on death row.
And here's another clue for you: I never said the president's name was La La. In fact, his name is Dale Boger. He's a very famous chemist. And there's an interesting story there. He has told people for years that his first name is Dale. But is it? Think about any other famous Dales you know. That's right: Chip-N-Dales. What are those? Nude MALE dancers. Get where I'm
coming from? OK, maybe Dale is innocent enough. But maybe, just maybe, it's a high-five to the famous Chip-N-Dales. It sure sounds like more than a coincidence.
Another thing. What is the name of the company? V-E-R-T-E-X. But what is their stock ticker symbol: V-R-T-X. What do the letters they removed spell? EE. Might refer to an extra wide shoe. But that doesn't make much sense either way. BUT, here's another, more likely explanation. It's a high five to vitamin E. Double dose. Remember that Vitamin E is associated with virility. Another coincidence? How many more convenient "coincidences" will it take to convince you?
