Many Apologies

As some of you may have noticed, there was no Thursday post last week; while I don't generally apologize for late posts, I do feel that it's my responsibility to make sure that whatever was here last Thursday isn't still the top of the blog come the next week. I had planned to post something Friday, but inclement weather in North Carolina made the weekend even more hectic than originally expected. (Stupid inclement weather.)

But as it happens, I'm not the only person to be making apologies today! Let's dive into the big bag of apologies and see who else has something to feel bad for!

Dear Humans,

Really sorry about the whole "acid for blood" thing. It's totally our fault, we drank something like six billion Mountain Dews and then topped it off with some Sour Patch Kids. Next time we'll take a Tums.

Sincerely,

the Aliens (Queen, Warrior, and little "Chesty")

Dear Comics Fans,

Sorry about the delay on "Spider-Man/Black Cat: The Evil That Men Do". I know you must have been so excited about it, and it must have been just as bad as those delays on "League of Extraordinary Gentlemen". I'm sure you were really waiting with bated breath for the last...oh. Not so much? Oh. Not even a little bit...? Oh. Well, sorry about the delay anyway.

Sincerely,

Kevin Smith

Dear Historians,

Sorry for the apoplectic fits, heart attacks, and brain aneurysms. But hey, "This! Is! Sparta!" was a really cool line, right? We'll try to make the sequel a little more accurate. (Well, sure, there's gonna be a sequel. Did you see how much that movie made? I dunno, maybe Leonidas was stabbed with "time spears" or something. Oh, crap. Just lost a dozen more historians.)

Sincerely,

Zach Snyder

Dear Marvel,

Sorry about the "time bullets" prank. I didn't really expect you to publish it!

Sincerely,

Ed Brubaker

...and last but not least...

Dear Everyone,

Sorry for being so awesome. I'll try to be slightly less awesome in the future, but I can't promise anything.

Sincerely,

Simon Pegg

Dear Society at Large,

Sorry for letting Leonard Malton get away; we'll try harder next time.

Yours,

The Gremlins

Don't feel bad Pegg. You tried to be less awesome with "Run Fatboy Run" and "How to Lose Friends & Alienate People". Not your fault it didn't take.

Now, Edgar Wright...

Dr. Fans,

Sorry for making one of the coolest story arcs of Spiderman suck ass.

Sincerely,

Sam Raimi

p.s.
I made up for it a little with Drag Me to Hell.
