I do not like your new avatar. How about The Brain from Pinky and the Brain to match your quote?

Pinky and the Brain are laboratory MICE whose genes have been spliced.

Geez. Sensitive. My sincerest apologies. I didn't mean to be Rat-ist.

BTW congrats on having your email read on the show

So is The Wrestler pretty much just an adaptation of the Jake the Snake segments of Beyond the Mat?

edit: Google sez I'm not the first person to suggest this link.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

it's at most based on, I thing there's definitely a link there, but it's not "just an adaptation" by any means.

I saw Beyond the Mat a very long time ago but I don't think there is much of a connection between Jake and Randy. Maybe loosely based on...

Just to clarify:  That post of mine is from long before I saw the movie.

Better to take from jake the snake, then, let's say, beniot?

It's not supposed to be very good, but...

How can it be bad if it's written and directed by a guy named Rokki James Hollywood and his next film is called Psycho Jesus?
