For those of you who've seen Hollywood's latest pile of poo on my childhood cultural icons:

VG Cats comic

That comic pretty well captures my sentiments.  It did a great job of bastardizing the franchise in the name of quick entertainment.  I don't know why I expected anything more - perhaps it's the optimist that I've tried to tie up, suffocate and drown deep inside.  Thanks a lot Hollywood, for showing that poor little remnant of happy me how undeserved its faint glimmer of faith is.
