No, Really

So, apparently humanity is SO STUPID that, not only do they not realize that Dan Brown is a talentless hack (a fact that my own 6-year-old could tell you, and will if you let her), but they need to be told that the Da Vinci Code is fiction.

The stupid, it hurts.

The problem is that stupid doesn't hurt. If it did, people would do it less... you'd hope.

Well, if they still do stupid, at least we'd feel better about witnessing it.

In India, which is home to 18 million Catholics, the head of the Catholic Secular Forum has begun a "hunger strike until death".

Activist Joseph Dias says his hunger strike will continue "until death"
Joseph Dias said he wanted others to join him and pledged to continue until the film was banned.

On the plus side, stupid people killing themselves for the sake of stupidity. That makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside.

So would having Chewbacca as a proctologist, but I'm sure you're not willing to submit to that.

Really, I wish there were a quicker, more humane way to get rid of idiots.

I know. "Hey, I'm in India, and I have a strong belief - I'm just like Ghandi! I should starve myself until people do what I want them to do! Except that he was doing it as a protest against actual human rights abuses and denial of rights, while I'm doing it as a protest against... a fictional story, which offends my religion, I think. Um... hm... anybody want a Big Mac?"

Reading about the protests or hearing about them on NPR has been mind-boggling the last few days. Ron Howard (who is a terrible, schmaltzy director) said something intelligent at Cannes, surprisingly. He said 'If you don't think you're gonna like it or it upsets you, don't go see it'.
