Yet Another Terrific Petition - To laugh at, that is....

In lieu of the petition to get Peter Jackson to change the name of The Two Towers because of the attacks on the World Trade Centers, I have drafted up the following petition:

We, the undersigned, after carefully exhausting all possibilities and feverishly studied the evidence, feel that we must submit this complaint to Peter Jackson.
The scene we have in question occurs when the Fellowship is running across the Dwarrowdelf in Moria, as the Orcs spring down from the pillars. Nearly every member there has a drawn sword in his hand.
We feel that this spreads false ideas and encourages not taking the proper steps to ensure safety with sharp objects. Seeing these film 'heroes' blatantly disregard common safety measures makes innocent and easily confused children much less apt to be careful. We care about our children. We warn them to not run with sharp objects in their hands. And yet we do nothing about things such as this.

Because of the above reasons, we feel that the filmmakers responsible should publicly apologize for this error in judgement and have videos sent out to further teach children about safety with sharp objects. Also, the relevant scenes should be deleted from the film, and/or replaced with scenes where the swords are safely tucked away.

We, the undersigned, respectfully submit this plea to Peter Jackson and we have no doubt that he will do the honorable and right thing to do.

signed,

Gee, that's funny....nobody seems to want their name on this thing.

Oh well.
