Please say you're only joking. Please.

If Jesus Christ hadn't risen from the dead, he'd surely be spinning in his grave right now.

Read the following and soak up the irony:

Mel Gibson's film-distribution outfit is suing Regal Entertainment Group for $40 million or more, claiming the movie chain shortchanged the company on revenues from "The Passion of the Christ."

Regal, the nation's largest movie chain, agreed to pay Gibson's Icon Distribution 55 percent of receipts but reneged in May and offered only 34 percent, George Hedges, an attorney for Icon, said Tuesday.

Icon filed the lawsuit Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court, saying Regal owed the company "in excess" of $40 million.

This is pathetic...absolutely pathetic.

I suppose it was inevitable that a movie that raked at the box office was destined for a debacle such as this...even if the movie was about Jesus, who, if I remember correctly, had a beef with greed. I wonder if any of the people involved in this ugly mess even know the meaning of the word "irony". How about "losers"? Maybe "blood suckers"?

Gods are surely shaking their heads. Or laughing. Or maybe they're not even paying attention anymore.

If I'm the court appointed to deal with these a-holes, I make them give all the money to charity. Thing is, none of these jokers even need the cash. None!

They're all loaded! Rich! Wealthy! Rolling in dough!

Pathetic. Just pathetic.
