Can A 3-D Movie Adaptation Starring Mike Myers Be Far Behind?

"Two long time children's book favorites completely modernized"

I looked into it, and there's really nothing at stake in this particular case. But the deep, unaware wrongness of the subject line of this morning's publicist email still made me sad for our civilization.

Actually, what it did was remind me of Mister Jalopy's anti-manifesto/lament from 2005:

Everything you love, everything meaningful with depth and history, all passionate authentic experiences will be appropriated, mishandled, watered down, cheapened, repackaged, marketed and sold to the people you hate.
Other than that, have a great day!
