It's a sick, sick world out there. After discovering a cult following for the Tubbie Terror Web site last week – where the fluffy funsters' blood flowed like rivers – we decided to peer into the darker side of the Web. And what an educational experience it's been. So many cute, cuddly characters to kill in cyberspace, but so little time. For example, we found another Teletubby killing site - Teletubby Fun Land – where surfers get the chance to "find out what the tubbies do when the cameras are off". Here, Stinky Winky, Dipshit, Lah-Lah and Pojo are seen getting drunk on shots, turning into demons, getting blown up, and are even found in an uncompromising position with a sheep. No prizes for guessing what their friend Suck-Suck the Vacuum cleaner (Noo-Noo on TV) puts up his hose-pipe nose in his spare time. Many other sites are dedicated to the death of your favourite Microsoft toy and mine – Barney. At the Assassins site you can use "Lunatic Moxy", an "infamous bounty hunter", to tear the purple creature limb from limb. While at Barney Must Die!, users can choose to watch Barney being shot, "set the purple slug on fire!", or "hit the fat one with a hammer". Or, for the more squeamish Barney-hater, there is the Barney Fun Page – still anything but fun for Barney. Punters can choose from seven implements – a knife, gun, axe, Uzi, shotgun, motorcycle, or cannon. The rest is up to them – but it's only a black and white drawing, so don't expect anything too disturbing. Unlike Kill a Furby!, which is concerned with murdering the cuddly toys as painfully as possible. "This hellspawn is pure evil," it proclaims. "The animatronic bastard son of Gizmo and one of those chickens from the Muppets". There are two choices for death – via Microwave, or by ripping Furby's ears off. Other fluffy characters who feature in death games on the Net at the Assassins site include Miss Piggy, Scooby Doo and Bill Gate. Leonardo di Caprio is also a regular feature on cyber hit lists. At Kill Leonardo di Caprio Now! Leo haters get the chance to see the Titanic star's head explode while bobbing around in the sea. For more fascinating filth, visit whowouldyoukill.com, where you can bump off just about anyone or anything in any way you fancy. Any readers who know of other sites where cuddly characters die horrible deaths, please email us. But remember, this is a family Web site, so please keep it clean. ® Stories & links: Tubbie Terror game strikes the Web Games vendors to 'blame' for murdered students Software publisher slams British game censorship Teletubby Fun Land Assassins site Barney Must Die!
