Friday Funnies...English teachers shed a tear

Nothing like dumbing-down and butchering a classic novel...indeed a classic Jules Verne film...to make a buck off suburban dumbasses this summer. Your "stimulus" checks at work. Of course, this will prompt the choice for my RAFBN week 5...

OK, so they should have called this "Journey to the Center of the Earth with Brenden Fraser and a bunch of KIds". Dumbed-down indeed. Reading the novel would be way cooler.

They might as well call this "Journey to the Center of My Butthole"!

Ha! I think one of the suburban morons just left you a comment!

Still, it might be good to take my sons to this. Decades ago my mother took my brother to see 20000 Leagues Under the Sea by Disney so I suppose there is precedent for making these for "kids," but I will admit that the dumbing-down quotient is a recent factor, OK?

People are product of their environment, actually IGNORANCE can be a great "SHIELD" [I mean to protect ONEs innocence ].

You know what I mean.
Can you BLAME these people?

The best movie I saw till now [this year-waiting for WALL-e] -- The Unknown Woman by Giuseppe Tornatore.
