Zombies k.o. Jesus, get taken out by Scooby-Doo
So goes the moods of the movie ticket buying public, as the recent top grossing movies have been, in order, “The Passion of the Christ”, “Dawn of the Dead”, and Scooby-Doo 2″
However, what you might not know is, the ANSWER Coalition smacked down Scooby-Doo at the antiwar march and rally in Los Angeles on March 20.
ANSWER was granted the parade/street closure permit for the demo. However Disney, owners of Scooby-Doo, apparently were not pleased to learn this meant they could not get their permit for a Scooby-Doo 2 pre-opening party – which was to be held at exactly the same place and time as the antiwar rally.
Much gnashing of teeth ensued, Rumor has it an invitation was made to Scooby asking him to speak in support of Palestinians, which apparently – and tragically – was declined. Happily though, on the day of the event, peaceniks and Scooby fans co-existed peacefully on the same street, as Elvis impersonators wandered freely between both contingents. Hurray for Hollywood!
