WALL*E



Let me say, in all honesty, that I am very excited to see this movie, and I will see it, which creates a certain level of hypocricy in this post.

I just find a little irony that this is a movie about an Earth that has been killed by consumerism, yet WALL*E has had the feces marketed out of it and toy shelves are overflowing with merchandise.

Truth is in 5 years official WALL*E merchandise is going to be filling landfills, such as; backpacks, binders, pens, pencils, pencil cases, pencil sharpeners, pencil boxes, pencil erasers, boxers, briefs, footy-pajamas, mustache wax, personal lubricant and industrial strength wood sealant.

we loved it! and rest assured probably won't be filling the landfills with any trace of wall-e stuff with the exception of our ticket stub.

The WALL*E mustache wax doesn't even work that well. I'm writing a letter to the producers of said product. Good thing I have WALL*E stationary, envelopes, postage and personal seal wax.

Hi Ryan! Aunt Gayle and Mya helped me find you!

Funny and true! It's like the ironic reprinting of Dr. Seuss's The Lorax to promote a greener earth. Um, it does require paper and cutting down trees to print books. Maybe they forgot that.
