    Wrong cartoon company ...

    Mickey Mouse was in Disney cartoons. Acme appeared in Warner Brothers cartoons. So your joke is factually wrong, unfunny and hurtful to the worshippers of God's representative on Earth - Porky Pig.

    We are a loving and tolerant religion which believes in peace and unity, therefore those of us of the Congregation Of Porky will be taking to the streets to call for your execution while holding banners proclaiming "Death to the Unbelievers".

    When you posted you must have know that Mickey Mouse and his believers are our mortal enemies. We will add your name to our list of enemies - a list that includes Warner Brothers who committed blasphemy when they depicted Gods Emissary as a cartoon character!!

    Tha-tha-tha-That's all folks!

    What you need, by all accounts, is a 'diversified porcine defense strategy'

    Somehow I wonder what would happen if my dad bought one of those, as his ISP's Road Runner. All that's missing is Wile E. Coyote.

    Anyway, better check it out, as it might blow up the first time I try to play a DVD while using Road Runner!

    Yeah that figures

    I suppose that explains why Wile had so little success, all his fridges,rockets,roller skates, bombs etc. werent properly licensed and were obviously sub-standard Chinese knock offs :)

    Haven't the DVD patents expired yet?

    Geesh, DVDs have been around like-forever. Haven't the patents expired yet? If not, it's getting pretty close.
