It sucks to walk on a Teletubbies question.

$16K: I figured that Falwell's death earlier this year on my birthday (May 15) would've put the Tinky Winky controversy back in the spotlight. Oh well...

Nihil obstat for me®

Does he have a Madden-like fear of flying, or was it a financial reason? That's a looooooooong ride.

Not all that infamous, I guess. I was hoping "Billy Big Rig" would go farther.

Hey, having worked as a trucker, he should be used to long rides! And he didn't even have to do the driving, this time. :wink:

Here's an article about Bill's carry-over appearance:

http://www.baxterbulletin.com/apps/pbcs ... 00323/1002

McElrath said he will use the money to pay bills and take a vacation to Orlando, Fla., sometime next year.

"I encourage anybody who has an inclination to go and try out for that show," McElrath said. "It is a great experience, something that they will never forget."


Yeah, so I've heard, Bill... :|

Yeah... if you get on the show, you will never forget it. And if TPTB don't pick you to be on the show, you will really never forget it. I've been trying since 1999. I still haven't forgotten.

I'd be fine. I guess it pays to pay attention to those Teletubbies (!).
