I support the writers during their little strike as much as the next person. But I’d be lying if I said I didn’t find this ad funny.

The copy reads:

This is a message from TCM to all the Hollywood screenwriters on strike:

Keep it up, guys.

After all, the greatest movies have already been written.

That’s good copy, my friends.

This was lovingly handwritten on January 30th, 2008
