HOLLYWOOD – Michael Bay produced, Megan Fox starring and Jonathan Liebesman directed Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has hit the screens and is winning plaudits and applause universally, with not a single dissenter. But how much do we know about these ‘TMNTs’? And is there anyway we could kill them? The Studio Exec sent the FACT squad into the sewer of untruth to delivery the pizza of KNOWLEDGE.
1. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles don’t exist. They were just made up by some guy. First as a comic book, then a cartoon, then a film, and now this. I mean it’s pathetic really the lies people tell.
2. Among fans there is a huge controversy over adjectival order. In their first appearance they were called the Mutant Teenage Turtle Ninjas, but then this was changed to Ninja Teenage Turtle Mutants and even for a short period the Turtle Ninja Mutant Teenagers. In Los Angeles a series of drive-by shootings from rival gangs were blamed on the mutant ninja or ninja mutant dispute of 1998.
3. Although still labeled as Teenage, the Mutant Teenage Mutant Ninjas are all now in their mid-forties.
4. Donatello, Michelangelo, Raphael and Leonardo all take their names from German novelists.
5. Michael Bay.

HOLLYWOOD – As the whole world holds their collective breath in anticipation of the Michael Bay produced and Jonathan Liebesman directed Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles this Summer, news is already leaking of a prequel planned for next year: Pre-Teen Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Liebesman, who is slated to start directing the new film as soon as the first movie wraps, had this to say:
The new film will be an origin tale that will fill in the backstory of everyone’s favorite greenies. With the film we’re finishing up now, we’ve gone very dark. There’s a lot of stuff about needing heroes and some metaphysical stuff we put in there, all of which will go over the heads of many younger members of the audience. So we’re going to take out the subtlety and the philosophy (a lot of which we lifted straight from Schopenhauer), completely eliminate the Swedish dialogue and we’re going to add some really dumbed down humor and a couple of explosions and we’re good to go. Oh and the next film will be in color.
PTMNT will show how Michelangelo, Donatello, Raphael and Leonardo grew up, getting into mischief in the sewers of New York until they are recruited and guided by Splinter. Zac Efron (Donatello) said that the new film will be ‘much lighter. Nowhere near as serious as TMNT.’
Pre-Teen Mutant Ninja Turtles will be released August, 2015.
