Magic Yeast

Vinny Gambini--Did you buy these magic grits from the same guy who sold Jack his beanstalk beans?

It's probably illegal for me to quote that line from My Cousin Vinny.  The movie studios are suing a couple sites that make movie scripts available for free download.  $11 million bucks worth, I think it is.  You can't embed videos.  Now you can't transcribe a script because of why?  Because you and your friends will say "Hey gang, let's put on a show" and then reenact the movie in the barn for the neighborhood kids?  Because reading the script is so much better than watching the movie that you'll just download a 20 year old (or more) script and read it instead of paying 20th Century Fox $19.99 to watch the thing?

Hey Rupert, what I really want to do is read the script to Knocked Up instead of watching the movie.  How about neither?  How about you make better movies and then to slightly misquote Sam Goldwyn "The customers won't be staying away in droves".

Anyway, this is all about this yeast product which sounds way cool and I'd like some.  And the image is in public domain.  But I could watermark it and say that because I tweaked it, now some weird kind of rights make it MINE MINE MINE and I'll sue you if you use it.  (I won't.  Go.  Use it.  Enjoy it.  Buy one of my books instead.)
