Revenge is a Dish Best Served with Helium

If you recall the 1956 French classic The Red Balloon, then you might enjoy this 2000 short film The Revenge of the Red Balloon.


Here's an article/commentary (dated today) by S.F. Gate columnist Mark Morford about Dobson, SpongeBob, etc. Loved what he said here:

"Note the connection. Note the blood-red thread of fear and dread and homophobia, the brutal irony throughout all these stories. Shrill extremist sects and small-minded leaders with too much control, saddled with self-righteous and outdated doctrines that refuse to allow the culture to progress, to laugh, to moan in joy and sticky happiness."
