O.K. I can accept that however the night of 4/25/99 I was watching an animated show called "Family Guy" on FOX. During the show they showed Sesame Street parody of Bert and Ernie in bed together then Bert got out of bed exposing his cartoon butt to the world while Ernie complained that he drank too much. There was no mistake who these characters were and what was being implied. Now, how can FOX get away with this while my site was forced to shut down? I have a feeling it has a lot to do with the fact that FOX has a lot more money for lawyers than I do...
