A Lesson to be Learned

From IMDB:

"Aaron Seltzer and writing partner Jason Friedberg have written a biopic of "Liberace" which they sold in January of 1999. It's still deep in development. They've also written and sold several other spoof comedy scripts, such as; "Raunchy Movie" and "Remembering the Titans On Any Given Sunday Gives Me The Varsity Blues". They've also completed adaptations of "Little Green Men" and "The Year Without Santa Claus", plus "H.R. Pufnstuf" and a draft of "Scary Movie 3: Episode I - Lord of the Brooms". All scripts are currently stuck in development."

Lesson to be learned: If you keep trying, and working hard, you'll eventually just annoy the fuck out of everyone. At least if you're Friedberg and Seltzer. And to think...these assholes wrote Spy Hard, which was actually a funny movie! Until I find a subject other than these two numbskulls to write about, consider this your lazy post of the day.
