I know everyone’s talking about the election. But here’s a proposal for another kind of referendum. I’m seeking a moratorium on all “bee” puns for the upcoming animated flick Bee Movie.
Star (and co-writer/co-producer) Jerry Seinfeld came into town earlier this week to yak about the film, his kids and that sitcom of his that’s on every fucking minute of the day.
Anyhow, pretty much everyone covering his appearance used some variation on this:
“Seinfeld builds buzz…”
“Lots of buzz over Jerry Seinfeld’s new ..”
Still, the worst puns had to be:
“Make a beeline to go see…”
“To bee or not to bee..”
Those were enough to give you, er, hives. And make you puke your brains out.
All this crap makes you wonder if the vocal casting of Sting in the movie had more to do with his name than his acting talent. Or Renee Zellwegger, for that matter. (Her last name begins with the letter Z, which sounds like… get it?)
