Chucky 6 VS Trolley Dodgers 1

Chucky 6 VS Trolley Dodgers 1

trolleydodgers-1Five times. Five times Hollywood has trotted out Chucky for a movie. And number six is coming this summer. Chucky, in case you don’t know is a little demonic doll that seems to keep getting movie gigs. Hollywood has run out of ideas. Reboots and sequels. That’s all we get these days.

So, if you’re a filmmaker, or you know a filmmaker, or you would like to be a filmmaker, please consider Trolley Dodgers. It’s an original story. It would be cheap to make. It doesn’t involve expensive special effects. It has the three things every great movie needs: romance, baseball, and carnies. Please consider making this movie, Hollywood. Spare us Chucky 7, Fast & Furious 7, and any more remakes of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

Carry on, Citizens!

When I arrived at work the next day, my editor told me to cover an upcoming protest by the DWARVES (Defenders of Wetlands, Animals, Rainforests, Vegetation, Ecosystems, and Swampland). “Ira, I’m a sports columnist. Why are you giving this to me?”

“Because everyone else is busy and it wouldn’t hurt you to broaden yourself with something besides sports.”

“Well, they’re having Red Stepper tryouts at Assembly Hall tomorrow. Couldn’t you broaden me with that assignment?”

“Baseball is a game where a curve is an optical illusion, a
screwball can be a pitch or a person, stealing is legal and you
can spit anywhere you like except in the umpire’s eye or on
the ball.”
~ Jim Murray

“What are you teaching fall semester?”

“Apathy,” Darryl replied, with little regard for my question.

“Seriously, what are you teaching?”

“Speech.”

“Speech?”

“Yeah, speech.”

“Morning class?”

“Yes.”

“Those kids are screwed.”
