This is wrong on so many levels that it is absolutely right!

Hello, my name is Frank, and I heartily approve this message.





Somebody finally climbed inside my head and made a movie of what they found.

Bobcat is a fucking GENIUS, and he should run for POTUS again!
The only thing that could make this movie any more perfect would be to find out that his bud Dweezil Zappa was doin' the sound track.

Welcome - Dweezil Zappa World
Check out his Manic Depression cover!

Ok I will watch this.

One thing irked me though: I only kill those who deserve to die, Frank said.

Just remember that maybe normalising killing dissidents like Westboro is a slippery slope.

Democracy and all that sass.

Looks good though. If nothing else at least it seems like it isn't some brain dead action flick.

Seems pretty brain dead to me.


Unhappy guy who lacks self responsibility and does things he hates gets a brain tumour, takes out his frustration on people that irritate him that are shitty like him but shitty in different ways, brings sex appeal with him to sell tickets. Together they both act preachy and shoot people cuz, y'know, we all suck and we know it and we hate it.

Hitler thought it was good to kill people who deserved to die.

Fuck Yeah! You do get it!

It's a fuckin' movie Ex, it ain't a new political dogma or religious cult (although I might consider joining if it was).

Yeah... and look at all of the great movies that that spawned.

C'mon mange. How about a little love for somebody havin' the balls to make a comedy movie about Eugenics.

You can't appreciate what that says about where we are?




(Seriously... you honestly never caught a Brittany Spears "News" flash that didn't make murder seem like a logical reaction?)

No, i haven't.

Maybe you should watch South Park's parody of killing Britany Spears.

Haven't seen that one yet, but I will.

You do understand that I'm not trying to stand up for mass murder don't you?

Yes, but you're still promoting it with the veil of comedy.

Not everyone will get that.

Sorry, I grew up watchin' the Three Stooges and playin' dodge ball. Blame them.
We had better start an immediate petition to ban Mel Brooks.

Lemme try and balance this. While I appreciate that there has been a definite dumbing down of the proletariat with regard to critical thinking, and outright gratuitous violence in our visual media driven culture has desensitized the masses to the realized potential for brutality that man now represents - I was not trying suggest that this movie was anything but more of the same. The slight differentiation being that this is farce!

I find that I now live in a world where people gird themselves for figurative and literal battles with invocations of mystical bullshit contrived by a ruling class to subjugate. Countries of men still murder each other wantonly in the name of some supposedly higher power, to accomplish nothing more than the glorification of more of the same. The very reasons that mankind first formed societies and civilizations, where they decided to govern themselves for the benefit of all, have all but evaporated.

We all start dying the minute we're conceived, and none of us will get out alive, so the means of our eventual ends means not much to me in the moment. The needless suffering brought about by the supposed do-goodery of those who expect homogenization and pasteurization of the species for the betterment of all overwhelms me with sadness every minute of the day that I choose to consider it. So I look to laugh. I look to escape. And if I find that there are others who are interested in joining me, so much the better, since we are an innately gregarious lot, and I genuinely enjoy the company of others.

Unfortunately, in what is left of the non-homogenized, unpasteurized rawness of the old world order, not everyone of us finds the same things adequate to take away the pain. Some find solace in food, some in sex, some in drink or drug. I enjoy all, but laughter is without a doubt the greatest elixir I have found, and nothing appeals to that peculiar trigger quite as readily as satire and farce. Unfortunately for the more highly evolved, I do not always share their sensitivities. I still laugh at farts, and the faces made upon smelling one, just as I laughed my ass off at the premise of a dying man setting out to fix what he saw was broken by killing everyone that he thought had a hand in it.

I don't really appreciate ethnic jokes, having no patience with xenophobes in general. Religious kookery all strike me as sketchy, and but a hairs breadth or a fatwah from inciting mass atrocities. Politicians and our rulers are of such a despicable lot that their significance as beings no longer represents any kind of humanity to me, so the available foils to provide my cynical ass a laugh are substantially diminished. If that means that I have nothing left to laugh at but myself, well so be it. And since I immediately empathized with the movie's protagonist, it seemed only natural that I laugh at him as well, and encourage others to do the same.

This sentence caught my eye though.

Is there actual do-goodery out there which helps people find meaning and eases suffering, in your world view?
