" But the poor lemmings are stuck with their Psycho soundtrack and deathwish reputation."

Everything I knew about lemmings is wrong. They don't commit mass suicide:
Although lemmings migrate due to population pressures and are known to fall from heights and drown in water, they don’t fling themselves off ledges in stampeding hordes, as “Winter Wonderland” leads its viewers to believe. Disney’s crew seems to have faked much of the lemming segment: It was filmed in landlocked Alberta, which is not a native habitat for lemmings and does not touch the ocean, and the lemmings themselves were apparently driven off the ledges and into the water.
Why would Disney want us to believe that?

That's a very good question!

The real truth is that only the gay and lesbian lemmings commit suicide. Once they "come out of the borough" they are ridiculed and chastised by the mean spirited and irrational social conservative lemmings. Then they get depressed and jump to their deaths. Basically the same reason gay people jump off the Golden Gate Bridge after catching themselves on fire - and thus giving rise to the term "flamers".

I thought everyone knew this stuff!

The lemmings committed suicide in Alberta? Those high Canadian taxes must have had something to do with it.
