Puppet Cleavage Too Daring For Colorado Springs Religious Right

The AP reports that a poster (left) of a puppet's cleavage for the musical Avenue Q is too hot for the religious right in Colorado Springs:

Puppet cleavage has been ruled out for advertising posters in Colorado Springs bus shelters.

Lamar Advertising rejected posters for a touring production of the Broadway show "Avenue Q" because they show the cleavage of a fuzzy pink puppet.

Lamar account executive Jeff Moore says the company takes a conservative approach in Colorado Springs. The city is known for its political conservatism, and some conservative Christian groups have headquarters in the city.

..."Avenue Q" is a Tony-winning musical about twentysomething New Yorkers, both human and puppets, searching for life and love.

The new poster will show the blue face of a puppet named Rod. The right wingers will like the fact that he's a conservative Republican. Do they also know that he's a closeted gay puppet in love with his best friend?
