The blatant idea theft
Not cool. Wanted to spread the word 'cuz it's one thing when just a person does this, but when a business does it then we really gotta make sure they know folks are paying attention. Cartoonists UNITE!
UPDATE! Looks like we spooked them enough to get it taken down. Jim is super relieved. High five, guys!

And that’s just sad.
Noah is not a perfect film, but it’s still one that I think everyone should watch, both religious and non. Noah is, at it’s core, an interpretation of the classic story by an amazing film mak
