George Lucas is a racist and marcwitt2003@yahoo.com is all for it

Remember when I made a post about how racist Phantom Menace was, some five or six years after it came out? Well, marcwitt2003@yahoo.com came to the same conclusion some three or so years after that. After googling "george lucas is a racist", Marc (I'm guessing that's his name from his email address) found my post on Lucas' racism and had this to say:

Episode 6
George decided to put the required Chinese and the required black character
into the script.
Comically they lasted as long as it takes to say "she's gona blow" and "I'm
hit" THERE's equal oportunity at work! The funny thing is I think it was
the right thing to do. DID THE BLACKS OR THE CHINESE INVENT THE TECHNIQUES
OF ILM OR LUCAS FILMS....NO WHITE PEOPLE DID> So quit your whining! White
people rule cuz we have more to offer.

Wow, Marc. Congrats on being white. And congrats on inventing on those special effects techniques. Oh wait, I forgot, you didn't invent that stuff, or anything of note, and you never will. You're just some inbred hick that can't spell. I'll admit, you have more familiarity with Return of the Jedi minutia than I'd expect from the average racist, but you had nothing to do with anything any other white person or any other human being has ever accomplished, so quit trying to take credit for it.

Spammers, if you missed his email address the first couple times, it's marcwitt2003@yahoo.com. Have at it.

Someone has found a new way to improve Garfield

You may have already seen someone take out Garfield's thought bubbles, miraculously improving the strips tenfold. You may have already seen Garfield strips reenacted in live action and then turned into short music videos.

But have you seen garfield minus garfield?

And if you have, well, what can I say, you love the internet more than I do.

Oscar Paraphrase Theater

There's a new Paraphrase Theater up, this time paraphrasing all the Oscar nominees for best picture.

Update: Apparently 236.com is no more, so here it is on youtube.

Someone at youtube likes Paraphrase Theater

Check it out

Click that link quick, I don't know how long it's going to last.

Update: Paraphrase Theater has now made it to the front page proper and getting more and more comments that make less and less sense.

In lieu of new content, here's a link to an angry comment from some random person

Warning, this comment contains swear words, some homophobic sentiments, and may be racist as well, I'm not sure. It also missed the point of the original post, but you shouldn't be surprised by that.

A comment so nice, joesy had to make it twice.
