Inconvenient truth ahead: trigger warning.
Nobody wants to see old wrinkled women on the big screen. Even old wrinkled women. Hollywood caters to a global audience these days, and the feelings of western leftists aren't really relevant any more. Sorry it didn't work out for you.
BIG STUMMIES SCIENTIST: Well, Ive been working on a thing. It's, uh, sorta like Stummies.
DON: Go on. I like what I hear.
BIG STUMMIES SCIENTIST: It's exactly like Stummies.
DON: And the twist is?
BIG STUMMIES SCIENTIST: It's a much bigger pill.
DON: I like a lot. Is it ready for production?
BIG STUMMIES SCIENTIST: Yes sir, it's ready to go.
DON: Yeah, have there been any side effects?
BIG STUMMIES SCIENTIST Yes sir, a few side effects.
NATALIE: Well that's OK. As long as there's no flipper babies, right Don?
BIG STUMMIES SCIENTIST: Well, there have been a few flipper babies.
INT. RORITOR BUILDING HALLWAY/ELEVATOR
Marv and Chris are coming out of the elevator. The Big Stummies Scientist is is hysterical and is being carried away by two security guards.
BIG STUMMIES SCIENTIST: AHHH! It was only a couple of flipper babies!
Isn't it easier when the intolerable beliefs are all on your side? Then you can insist that others accept you, while feeling self-righteous all the time. However, the moment that someone else barges into your kumbaya scene, you feel not the least bit tolerant towards their opinions. Funny how that works, isn't it?
What does the word 'Pakistan' mean?
At this point, as US citizen, I'm much more concerned about what the US government does both abroad and at home (including stuff like supporting a repressive Saudi Arabia, other actions abroad that make terrorist blowback more likely, domestic cage-like "free speech zones", domestic rulings saying border patrols can operate in a constitution-ignoring way up to 100 miles inland, etc.)
You right-wing fuckbags are always calling for less government. Guess what? Nobody fucking cares about your precious constitution. Your opposition to Obama is just racism. America is going to change and you're not going to like it one bit. Get used to it.
That's not true at all, I have read on these very pages how all religion is utterly and irredeemably evil and must be destroyed. Now we're making exceptions?
PS if you think Buddhists are innocent of bombing, you really need to pick up a history book. Beheading, too.
I love how you totally neglect to mention the fact that the Islamic Republic of Iran (its correct name) is a functioning fascist theocracy. It is ruled by Muslim religious leaders. That's why it's so wildly unpopular worldwide. That's why young people need VPNs to get out to the world.
Maybe this is all a message from the world to Iran that they need to change their thinking. Being trade embargoed is like putting a child in time-out. What did you do wrong, and why are you in time-out? Stop calling the other children The Great Satan (seriously, that's their official name for USA in official government reports).
The US government also brought you the NSA. Hurray for the government!
I feel dirty saying that, even as a joke.
