Curious George Learns A Hard Lesson About Desire

Werner Herzog Reads Curious George

Bleak German director Werner Herzog reads and interprets Curious George: "This should give you a dim view of human potential."

The Man in the Big Yellow Hat is no friend to George — he lures him out of his home, tosses him into a bag and tells him how great his life will be on display in a cage in the zoo. Some friend. And I don't even want to get started on that other child classic Babar, about an elephant that is an old lady's gigolo... From Stupid Is The New Awesome, via The Zeray Gazette.

  1. "Stupid is the New Awesome." I cannot think of a truer statement.

  2. Nailed the zeitgeist right on the head.
