The Truth About Barney

Most people when they are born love Barney and just about that time the doting parents love the wonderful purple dinosaur who gives them releaf from crying and diaper changes and enthralls their youngster for a few hours of pleasure. After time a universal maxim seems to develop and in time we begin to say:

Now we know why we hate that obnoxious thing!

1) Start with the given: CUTE PURPLE DINOSAUR

2) Change all U's to V's (which is proper Latin anyway): CVTE PVRPLE DINOSAVR

3) Extract all Roman Numerals: C V V L D I V

4) Convert into Arabic values: 100 5 5 50 500 1 5

5) Add all the numbers: 666

Thus, Barney is Satan.
