    I love this. Very funny! And you know what, some of this could actually work and make a good movie! Gone in 60 Seconds cracked me up, and I don’t know why. 🙂

    I just discovered your blog here, and love your sense of humor. It’s skewed. Just as it should be.

    Keep it up!

  2. Thanks very much, appreciate your comments! I had a lot of fun coming up with these, so very pleased you like. I might do another one at some point if i can come up with enough.

    Star Wars V: Luke gets mad at his father and forgets he exists.
    This is hilarious, nice post. Thanks for sharing it on twitter, because I most likely wouldn’t have seen it otherwise!

    • Thanks Melissa! I like that Star Wars one 🙂 I was looking through my archive and there are a few things I want to share again as I wrote them before anyone read anything I did! Might do another one of these at some point as well.
