Another One For The "Ick" List

You know, I'm a writer. I sit down at the keyboard and transfer my thoughts to words every day. And every once in a while, I'll find myself stuck with how to proceed because what I'm writing about is so mind-boggling.

Prepare to be appalled:

This would normally just qualify as stupid in my book, like the Star Wars Transformers or Darth Tater toys. But what pushes this into the realm of OMGWTF is this, Minnie Mouse dressed as Slave Girl Leia.

I'm guessing Disney figured, "Hey, there's already places like Wacky World Of Erotic Cartoons nuking people's childhood memories, and we don't make a dime off of it. It's time we got off our butts and took control of the situation!"

Even worse is the fact that Mickey and Minnie are lovers, but according to the analog casting, they are also brother and sister.

Excuse me, I just threw up in my mouth a little.

I guess economic times are tougher than I thought. Either that, or there truly is nothing Disney won't merchandise.

Ok, I can see a diehard SW and Disney fan buying those, not anyone else. But for your other point if you think of it in the proper order, they are lovers portraying brother and sister, not the other way around. I can deal with that.

I have thought of a way of using existing cartoon characters in the Star Wars setting using those exact posses and costumes that would work.

Elmer Fudd as Luke and Bugs Bunny as Leia - Disturbing, yes Funny, definitely.
