Posted by: mcq on Thursday, March 02, 2006

I mean we all know the story about those long nights on the lonesome prarie, and if your compadre isn't there, well:
The makers of the gay cowboy flick "Brokeback Mountain" were too rough on sheep, an animal-rights group charged yesterday.
Heh ...

Next, PETA will claim discrimination as the sheep didn’t get paid actor scale, and therefore got fleeced.

BBIV Oscar in Danger

The Academy Award possibilities for the latest Brokeback Mountain sequel, Brokeback Mountain IV: The Extended Family, took a hit yesterday when the arthropod rights group BAAT (Bugs are Animals Too) protested that many fleas had been killed during the production. Earlier movies in the series had been criticized for their rough treatment of sheep, and the current producers attempted to rectify those abuses by providing a special, air-conditioned trailer for all farm animals used, and by giving them special baths to eliminate parasites.

BAAT in their press release claimed "As many as 5000 fleas were killed during the production. This creaturecide cannot be countenanced just for production of a movie. The producers ought to be drummed out of Hollywood for such an act of cruelty."

Head producer George Clooney Junior, in his first major actor/producer gig, replied that the group was right. "We just didn’t think about the fleas," he said. "We were so concerned about the sheep that it blinded us to our moral responsibilties. We feel so humbled and offer our profoundest apologies to the entire Hollywood community and the world."

Clooney previously starred in "Syriana III: The Glory of Dhimmitude" and is known for his groveling apologies. BAAT was not impressed by his response.

"How can we take him seriously?", said Osama Sarandon-Robbins, son of actress Susan Sarandon and actor Tim Robbins, and president of BAAT. "The camels in Syriana III were also sprayed for fleas, according to our sources, so he’s already seen creaturecide in action."

This unexpected development improves the Oscar chances of the biography flick "Dan Rather Was Right About Bush", an re-examination of the shameful sacking of Dan Rather and his producer after their courageous exposure of the sins of the so-called Imperial President, George W. Bush, who reigned from 2001 to 2009.
