Nobody move or Tinky Winky gets it

I fear for the life of Tinky Winky. Iran has bought the BBC money spinner that is ‘Teletubbies’.

The Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting is currently dubbing the whole thing into Farsi. Apparently it's taking a long time.

Will handbag-toting, gay icon Tinky Winky take a trip to a football stadium? Maybe not, but of course, homosexual acts are a capital crime in Iran and those found guilty are given a choice of death by hanging, stoning, halved by a sword, or dropped from the highest perch.

You have to love the choice.

The deal obviously comes as Iran faces pressure over its nuclear programme. Now, I think about it, the Teletubby house is underground and a bit cold war bunker like. Are the Iranians sending us a message?

Could one specify to be dropped from the highest perch into a swimming pool?

Not that I'm a diver but it's always worth a thought.

Could the Tubbies be overdubbed to mean something completely different? Think what happened with The Magic Roundabout.
If we're not careful Tinky Winky may start declaring jihad on Po. Actually that would be quite good.
