pop culture BLOW OFF of the day: The Little Mermaid

When I was nine years old, my next door neighbor and I went to see The Wizard starring the always charming Fred Savage and afterwards, we decided to be rebellious and sneak into a movie without paying for it. That movie was The Little Mermaid. To this day, it remains one of my all time favorite Disney films and not just because some disgruntled animator gave the priest a big fat erection in the wedding scene. (what, it's his knee and not an erection? Yeah, right. Shut up. Stop ruining it for me.)

Mainly, I love the movie, because I think Sebastian is the best movie wingman ever. He's so protective of Ariel and totally wants to help her win her man. But as much as I love the story, I've always kind of resented the fact that Ariel had to BLOW OFF her dad for her future hubby. Instead, why couldn't Prince Eric get a pair of fins (or flippers) and some scuba gear and go live with her? Or maybe they could have at least done a bi-land/bi-sea arrangement. Anyway, here's my favorite song from the movie. I'm so glad I never got cock-blocked by a pair of evil eels.
