Fling more drumsticks! She’s not scared yet!

March 20, 2008

fashion-new-birds-180.jpgBlog Guy, you’re the only one I trust when it comes to entertainment news. I’ve heard there is a super-secret remake of an Alfred Hitchcock classic, but nobody is talking.

Yeah, that would be the low-budget remake of “The Birds.” The studio has it under wraps because frankly, it’s awful. They even tried to prevent me from using these photos from the production.

They had no money for special effects, so they did stuff like wiring birds to the actors’ heads, dropping feathered beanbags from rafters, and even lobbing dead crows onto the set with slingshots.

For the pivotal climax, they tipped over 622 buckets full of fried chicken parts onto the heroine, along with opened ketchup packets for blood. Does this look like terror to you, because to me, it just looks like somebody trying to dodge greasy thighs and wings.

Once upon a runway dreary, while I pondered weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious outfit trimmed in purple and in red,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a flapping,
As of some avian kidnapping, tapping on the model’s head,
`’Tis Galliano,’ I muttered, `tapping on the model’s head –
Quoth the raven, ‘Yes, I’m dead!’

Klimchuk is such an amateur. He will never attain Galliano’s brilliance at giving women a headache!
