Looking for Laughs?

It may surprise some of you, but when I want the Internet to make me laugh, I tend to click on one of our top reporters on the Middle East.

His latest post cracked me up. It turns out that Mel Gibson really is anti-Semitic! Hah!

No, seriously. I’m not being sarcastic.

Gibson was teaming up with Basic Instinct screenwriter Joe Esterhaz to make a Braveheart version of the Maccabees (Chanukah) story. Warner Bros has now shelved the project. But apparently Gibson thought he can blame it on a bad script and take credit for being the anti-anti-Semite no one believes him to be. So Esterhaz has shot back and publicized a 9-page letter in which he states that, among other shockers, Gibson’s REAL intent was for the movie to convert Jews into Christians.

High drama in Hollywood today! Fun fun!

    The Kids in the Hall link took this post from great to super great. I could have used Ibish’s comment about word choice so well when I taught. Alas. Example “To claim that ‘Pynchon has a unique writing style’ is to strip language of all meaning.”

      Yes, that is awesome. (Updated): Also, that is one of my all time favorite KITH sketches. I’m glad you enjoyed it, Stacy!

I'd love to hear what you think!
