    Nice one.
    I've always loved that pig-latin phrase.
    And the claws had my 4 year old screaming!

    I told my wife (the Lion) this morning that she has scared a 4 year-old with the claws. She got a chuckle out of that. BTW, that Latin phrase is not the only sight-gag in the video. There is one more. See of you can find it.

    Very funny. It sounds like a line from an interview Charlie Chaplin did way back in the day, when he was asked what they did in Hollywood. His reply apparently was something along the lines of, we don't make movies here, we make money.

    Unfortunately, I'm a long way off still from the Money Making league. <smile>

    Did you, or anybody notice the face on the logo, the one in the lower center down below the lion's face portal? I can't believe it has gone unnoticed, or at least nobody has commented on it.

    I certainly noticed "a" face there. And studied it for any significance, but...? Clearly way over my head.

    Ok, take a look at the attached thumbnail pictures. Does that make it any clearer?

    BTW, for some reason, which I can only guess is a chance mixing of picture elements between the feathered insert image and the background mat elements, the face appears to have both horns on the side of the head and a halo above the head. Hummmm?

    I have to admit, if you hadn't left the name of the jpg as it is I'd never have recognised him! In fact, even with the name, I still don't see it as him. The joker disguise is simply too effective. But now I know, I like the joke.

    Yea, there has been a big stink back in the States about someone taking an Obama picture and painting on the Heath Ledger "Joker" makeup from Batman, the Dark Knight, and plastering such posters everywhere. I thought it was an excellent example of artistic expressionism by the original artist and just the thing I needed to ad to the phony MGM trademark of the video.
