A Wee Bit of Nonsense

I see some strange things on the internet, and this is certainly one of them. I was unaware before just now that there was a film out there called The Wee Man and that it's out this year. 2013, not 70 years ago when words would pop up in their modern contexts as opposed to the giggly or inappropriate context of today - The Gay Divorcee would certainly be given a swift retitle if made now (note to Hollywood: do not remake The Gay Divorcee. While I guess we can give the producers some props for using a name that is (one can only assume) entirely relevant and sticking to it despite the laughs that may come at their production's expense... or, we could just point and giggle at the idea of somebody releasing a movie called The Wee Man. Could The Wee Man's title along make it an early Irina Palm d'Or contender for 2013?

Or maybe I'm just entirely juvenile and am the only one who finds it funny. That could definitely be the case.

Which is funny because I've seen Alice Creed and Martin Compston is no wee man. ;)
