The muy awesomest typo lately

I want to see “How to Drain your Dragon.”

In a press release I got at work, Movieguide lashes out against the evils of Kick-Ass (the film we’re still not getting where I live, and now I hear that it’s because of the word “ass” in the title, so huh?).

So we could've gotten to see a movie called "Kick-Butt"?

Here’s a quote from the PSA: “The movie, KICK A** (we’re not spelling it out on purpose. . .) stars 11-year-old Chloe Moretz (now 13) as a young superhero who stabs, shoots, kicks, beats up, and otherwise wipes out evil criminals while saying a few choice ‘f’ words in the process.”

Look, Movieguide, I'm not sure you're up on current affairs, but 11-year-olds nowadays are all droppin' f-bombs and cappin' folks.

Look, people. They’re not spelling it out on purpose.

They further go on to recommend instead “delightful family friendly animated movie HOW TO DRAIN YOUR DRAGON.”

They actually meant THIS family-friendly animated movie, not that other one.

Which, of course, sounds like one of the best porn movies ever. I mean, “Let’s drain the dragon,” guys, am I right?

On a related note, the title of the press release is: “Hollywood Makes Another Big Mistake in Its Perversion of American Youth.”

    Really? The word “Ass,” which has been said in the promos on all the cable channels, is a sticking point?

    *sigh*

      I don’t know. That could be bullshit too.
