This morning over bacon and waffles, Mike mentioned something he saw in the news about Avatar director James Cameron.
"He said he wants to shoot global warming deniers in the street."*
I paused with my fork halfway to my mouth. "Seriously?" I wasn't sure I'd heard right since I'd only had one cup of coffee.
Mike nodded. "Yep. Like High Noon or something."
"Heh. Oh, really," I said, beginning to giggle. "I wonder...does James Cameron even have guns?" I was laughing outright now, imagining the world's most pathetic shootout - Cameron shooting at his opponent with his evil black rifle (& a shoulder thing that goes up, natch) but missing every time. His opponent calmly raises an old M1911, its metal patinaed with use, and delivers a single shot to the chest. The truth dawns in Cameron's eyes, but too late to save him. With his last breath he whispers, "It's not like in the movies..."
*And, hey! what is it with these liberals always being the first ones to resort to violence and guns? Are they compensating for something?
