Michael Bay Says The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Are Aliens
Everyone’s eyes rolled when they heard that CGI schlockmaster Michael Bay‘s production company would be handling the upcoming remake of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. But no one was quite expecting this.
“These turtles are from an alien race,” said Bay. “And they are going to be tough, edgy, funny and completely loveable.”
No, Michael Bay. NO. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are not aliens, THEY ARE MUTANTS. IT’S RIGHT THERE IN THE NAME.
The TMNT did not come from space. They were baby turtles who were dropped down the sewer and came into contact with radioactive ooze, and were raised by a karate-fighting rat. Aliens? That’s just stupid.
Also, Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raphael, and Donatello were “toughy, edgy, funny,” and “loveable” without your help, Bay. I met Michelangelo at a birthday party when I was five, and he was awesome. He said he “loved being a turtle.” But I guess that’s not good enough for you, Michael Bay.
What do you think about this TMNT/Alien business?
