Today we learned that The Lorax, which teaches conservation and warns of man-made environmental disasters, will be a GCI animated love story in which a boy, voiced by Zac Efron, "searches for a way to win the affection of the girl of his dreams." The dream girl? Taylor Swift. As Bitcherina points out, things could be worse! At least Hollywood can never take away our love of rhymes:
I would not watch it on the screen.
I hope they don't cast Charlie Sheen.
I do not like this remake spam.
I do not like it, Sam-I-am.
Congrats, Bitcherina! Winning! And by that, I mean we're all losing.
As you've probably noticed, we're changing the Comment of the Day format a bit. From now on we'll only be highlighting one comment per day, so that user can claim all the bragging rights. We'd still like you to submit nominations to the Comment of the Day tag page. Just send the outstanding comment's URL and tag your nomination #cotd. (Replying to a comment with "#cotd" does not work.)
Use #trollpatrol to report comments that you feel the editors/mods should be aware of. Try not to respond to/approve/promote trollish comments in the threads — instead, just post the comment on the #trollpatrol page, the same way you'd post a comment on #groupthink or on the #cotd page, and the editors/mods will take care of it.
For meetups, use the meetup tag page!
