A silly thought on the cartoon wars

Word on the strip is that there was a major riot in Orlando today. Bugs Bunny lead a group of Warner Brothers cartoons in a demonstration against Disney's blasphemous use of computer generated graphic cartoons in Pixar films. Reports are that a mob that included notables such as Elmer Fudd, Wile E. Coyote, the Roadrunner, and Daffy Duck participated in burning down the Magic Kingdom, calling for a new fiefdom led by Michigan J. Frog. Disney Guards, typically unarmed, fought back with ACME weapons confiscated from protestors. 6 were killed in the protest, including famed WB toons such as Pinky, the Brain, and Foghorn Leghorn.

There are early signs that outrage may have actually been started by Sylvester the Cat. Sylvester distributed the computer generated images of Pixar characters, along with computerized images of Porky Pig and Yosemite Sam in an intinate position, Tweety Bird painting white stripes on Pepe LePew, and Speedy Gonzales sneaking through a fence at the U.S.-Mexican border.

Across the West, stores are pulling Pixar films and publications are refusing to show images of Shrek, Buzz Lightyear, and Woody out of sensitivity towards the WB-ias.

It is also reported that unrest is developing in the comic books and funny pages of major newspapers. There are concerns that Peanuts gang may be protesting in Minneapolis on Monday. Some publications and politicians are also angry that the blogosphere may be further inflaming the cartoon world by showing the offending cartoons on their websites.
