As a follow-up to my previous invective-laden diatribe, I thought you’d be interested to see that the same people who brought us welovetheiraqiinformationminister.com are at it again with tomcruiseisnuts.com. I particularly love their “disclaimer” at the bottom:
Our use of the term “nuts” is meant, as defined in Webster’s, as a reference to an “eccentric” person. That’s all. We do not mean to in any way denigrate or belittle anyone with mental illness. In fact, we take mental illness very seriously, which is why Mr. Cruise’s ill-informed rant inspired us to create this website. We don’t have anything personally against Mr. Cruise, either. We think he’s a first-class actor and a humanitarian. We did used to worry that he was a misguided zealot, but that’s all. Now we think he’s a dangerous, misguided zealot.
Couldn’t have said it better myself. Well, except that, as someone who has been treated for mental illness, I do now have something personally against Mr. Cruise.
