|The closing scene from my new screwball comedy.|
1. If Sony went ahead and released the movie and theater owners were dumb enough to show it, how many people would be dumb enough to risk life and limb to go see it? (Can you spell A-U-R-O-R-A?)
2. How does it further world peace for us to make fun of other countries, even if their evil dictators are evil dictators?
Three years ago I wrote a supposed-to-be funny post saying that with all the wonderful people who had been killed by crazy nuts, it was a shame that Keith Olbermann still walked among us. Oy vay...what a firestorm ensued. I was scum! I was a kook, not funny, and despicable for even joking about such a thing! Couple of things:
1. Keith Olbermann could never be "assassinated" since he is not not important enough. He could simply be killed.
2. Making a movie about two CIA agents assigned to assassinate Kim Jong-un seems about a zillion times worse than my silly blog post, but the same liberal Democrats who flipped out when I wrote it are now wringing their hands over how American creativity must not be silenced by terrorists.
Emboldened by the current miasma pervading the entertainment industry, I am working feverishly to finish my new screenplay wherein Nancy Pelosi, Elizabeth Warren and Hillary Clinton get trapped inside an elevator aboard a Carnival Cruise ship that bursts into flames and then sinks to the ocean floor, coming to rest right next to the hull of the rusted Titanic. Naturally they die, as does everyone else aboard the "Clinton/Warren in 2016" fundraising cruise. It's quite funny and offends no foreigners, although I think Bill and Chelsea will be upset. (Maybe not Bill so much.) I am pitching it to Sony Pictures next week, as they likely will not be getting many new scripts to consider.
