Mel Gibson Cashes In His Jesus Money


Hey guys, it's Donnie...Mel Gibson has announced his next directorial effort and it's called...Apocolypto. There are at least a dozen religious jokes begging to be told there, but I'm going to attempt restraint. I'm told it's good for the soul.

Very little is known about the film, but it does center around an ancient civilization about 3,000 years in the past and will be chock full of Braveheart-ish violence and gore. The meaning of the title isn't in reference to an apocolypse per se (cuz if I find out that The Apocolypse already happened 3,000 years ago, I'm gonna be pissed...) but more the greek meaning of "unveiling" or "new beginning". Gibson has apparantly sworn up and down that this film has nothing to do with religion, because we all know that nobody likes God.

Gibson's Icon Productions will be putting up all the production money as well as funding overseas distribution, but Mel just inked a deal with The Mouse House to cover domestic distribution. Filming begins in October with sights set on a summer 2006 release.

"...nobody likes God." that's a pretty bold statement. wrong, but bold.

either there is a God or there isn't. if there isn't, i guess you're in the clear. but if there is, well, does the term "eternity" mean anything to you?

good luck.

Not to criticize my readership, but this is without a doubt the dumbest comment I've receieved on this site to date.

Clearly sarcasm is beyond this person, which is a crying shame, cuz that means that 90% of my jokes on this site aren't gonna make a lick of sense to them.

Oh well.

sarcasm is clearly too complex a concept for this person, but i guess condescension isn't.

no, i don't think your opinions are meaningless. misguided and superfluous at a minimum. reckless and no concern for the consequences of your words more accurately describe you.
