The Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers Answers Questions About the Strike

Whatever else you think of the WGA-AMPTP negotiations (now on hiatus), the collateral creativity is fun-nee:

What is the AMPTP? The AMPTP, or Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers, is a collection of kindly gentlemen who create and distribute all of your favorite screen-based entertainment. Did you like Snow White when you were a kid? The AMPTP made that. How do you feel about "American Idol," The Bourne Ultimatum and everything Will Smith has ever done? That's the AMPTP, too.

You're welcome.

What is this disagreement you have with the Writers Guild of America? It boils down to a difference of opinion. They want us to pay them for their work, which would literally[1] bankrupt Hollywood and prevent us from creating these movies and television shows. We, on the other hand, want to keep making movies and television shows, so that people can be happy, and violent crime will fall ...

If you don't know, this is from amptp.com, not to be confused with the equally enchanting amptp.org.

You're welcome.

Now if only these writers were this funny all the time then maybe TV would be worth watching...I'm only kidding. Oh, wait! See I can tell jokes as well as they can...with that type of humor I could belong to the WGA. But I assume that maybe a one of their High School children created that web-site....so funny!!!
I bet all those BTL workers that the WGA is striking to help are having a great XMas and laughing really hard.

With writing skills like that, I'm thinking you should try for a GED rather than the WGA.

But the .com website because SO much funnier once I looked at the authentic .org website. Wait, aren't "org" domain names supposed to be not-for-profit!?

Hey, Chris, have you ever read a script. Most of them are so riddled with typos that it seems pretty clear that most writers haven't figured out spell or grammar checks yet.
