Totally and Thoroughly Disgusted

After waiting a year for Tom Baker's return to the big screen (after the unmentionable D&D Movie) The Magic Roundabout to be released in the U.S., I am utterly nauseated to find out that it has been re-dubbed with American actors and renamed Doogal. This is obviously because American kids just won't go to see a movie with English accents- the fact that Harry Potter and Chicken Run bombed at the box office proved that- right? Gone are Tom Baker, Joanna Lumley, & Jim Broadbent, replaced by the likes of Jon Stewart, Whoopie Goldberg, & Jimmy Fallon. There is a cold, cold place in hell reserved for these assholes. May their livers turn to turnips, may their hair turn to brillo, may they forever wet their beds, and may every television set they watch get horrible reception. Bastards.

Remember what dad would sing...

May the bird of paradise fly up your nose
May an elephant caress you with his toes
May your wife be blessed with a run in her hose
May the bird of paradise fly up your nose!

Thanks for letting THAT bit of nostalgia escape the confines of my brain. I think.

ps ~ did anyone at least wear the scarf? Or would people think that was copying HP?
