Joe worked hard all his life, he didn't deserve to be kidnapped, tortured and beheaded by insurgents, but thatís what happened. On the plus side, Joe was really, really good at it! Actually, he was so satisfying that there was always a big argument over who would get to harm him and for how long (one of them brought an egg timer from home to keep it fair). Sure, Joe could have coasted through it, a lot of people do, but he didnít. He maintained a solid, consistent effort right up until he was about to be executed on camera loaded with cheap, kidnapper-grade filmstock. Too bad though, he couldn't maintain his top-drawer performance for the decapitation; it came off forced.

03/11/2005 Will Disney: boy, this short is a little insenstive, huh???
03/11/2005 TheBuyer: Dude, there's a fuckin war on, eh? You know?
03/11/2005 The Rid: Wicked inappropriate and wicked, wicked funny. My God, we're bad people. I want to give this a five. And I just might.
03/11/2005 Partytime: I guess Joe was just another "Little Eichman" eh author? John McCain hasn't suffered enough? This kinda shit is why we need to reinstate the House Committee on Unamerican Activities.
03/11/2005 The Rid: Disney: Is this short the reason for the disclaimer?
03/11/2005 Sergio (5): What nationality is Joe?
03/11/2005 Dylan Danko: kidnapper grade film stock
03/11/2005 John Slocum: I'm the president of the Disney fan club, but sumpthin bothers me about this one. Slocum will mull...Slocum will ponder...Slocum will cogitate...Slocum will worry....
03/11/2005 Mr. Joshua: Slocum, you're a good man. I'm certain that whatever decision you make will be the result of ruthlessly conscientious deliberation and painstakingly fair-minded judgement.
03/11/2005 qualcomm: it's frattily transgressive, not in execution, but just the conceit.
03/11/2005 Jon Matza (3): Egg-timer & filmstock jokes were semi-watercololer. Otherwise, phoned in.
03/11/2005 anonymous: 100% Fat Free
03/11/2005 Jon Matza: OK, what troglodyte chose this as the latest controversy?
03/11/2005 anonymous: The troggie in question is The Rid.
03/11/2005 Jon Matza: GET 'IM!!!
03/11/2005 Litcube: Hrm.
03/11/2005 Jawbreaker: Do you really think The Rid picked it as a controversy after calling it "wicked funny?"
03/11/2005 anonymous: Maybe this is Disney fan fiction?
03/11/2005 Litcube: 'Breaker: This is a very serious matter. Please remain behind the yellow tape.
03/11/2005 Klause Muppet (4):
03/11/2005 The Rid: I picked this as the controversy by accident. I mean to click the comment button. Oh, well. Now it's gotta controversy pick. FU.
03/11/2005 TheBuyer (4): good one Mr. Pony - seriously though, you know this is a very serious subject but 'it came off forced' is just too much of a dumb haw haw haw to ignore.
03/11/2005 anonymous: You dummies; Disney wrote this!
03/11/2005 Mr. Pony: I mean, just look! It's so clear!
03/11/2005 Mr. Pony: oops
03/11/2005 The Rid (5):
03/11/2005 Litcube (3):
03/11/2005 Will Disney: wasn't me
03/11/2005 Ewan Snow (3): sorry, but this is a tough quarter, buddy.
03/12/2005 Will Disney: told you it wasn't me!
03/12/2005 Mr. Pony: oops!
03/12/2005 Mr. Pony (3): I'm sorry that all my (ultimately futile and ridiculous) attempts to trick the BetVite crowd into thinking this was not Disney prevented me from voting or commenting on the short, author. There are some decent gags here , and I think the matter-of-fact tone was a good way to go, but something's not right here. Maybe I expect more work for something so easily offensive.
03/13/2005 BrainDamaged: A little thrift, maybe just 7% off!
03/13/2005 John Slocum (3):
09/6/2005 Dick Vomit: I assure you: terrorists shoot consumer video, the fucking hacks.
09/6/2005 The Rid: I'm not sure why I gave this five stars, but I still like the idea of "Kidnapper-grade film stock."
