I didn’t want to blog this because I didn’t want this dickhead to get any extra attention and actually hit his goal. But humanity has failed yet again as it has easily eclipsed its goal a full month before the kickstarter’s end date.
109 idiots pledged an average of $36.70 to go in and remove the rat at the end of “The Departed.” Is it a heavy handed metaphor? Absolutely. Did it ruin a classic? Not even in the slightest. If you can get through the 2+ hours of the therapist going in and out of a Boston accent, Jack not even attempting an accent, the entire plot where one of the most notorious gangsters of all time hires new muscle and suddenly suspects he has a rat and cannot piece together that it’s the new guy who he knew was in the police academy. If none of that bothers you but the rat in the very last scene drives you up a wall, here is a friendly suggestion I can humbly offer up: shut the fucking movie off right after Wahlberg kills Damon. Bam, you’re welcome for the extra $36.70 in your pocket. Now you have something to hand to the wallet inspector when he stops you on the streets later today.
I hate this guy and the 109 asshats who donated to this kickstarter. I definitely hate the 109 people who donated more than the guy who started the kickstarter. If this guy just wanted to do this as a classic internet joke, by all means go ahead. It’s a big internet, there’s plenty of room for all of us. But to sit there, take out your credit or debit card, and contribute legal US tender to this cause should immediately revoke most of your rights and also install a timer on your internet. Like if this is how you’re spending your time AND money you should only get like 15 minutes a day to surf the web. Let’s make the information highway a little faster for the rest of us so dolts like this aren’t taking up the rest of our bandwidth. (I don’t actually know if this is how the internet works but even if it isn’t I still want their access revoked.)
