General Ross in The Incredible Hulk

A tall green dude with arms that look like they’re stuffed full of bowling balls and a neck as wide as Hillary’s hips, shouldn’t have to stand there and be assaulted by the American Medical Association Alliance and their white-coated sissy spokeswoman.

The AMAA doesn’t want William Hurt’s character of Thunderbolt Ross to smoke in The Incredible Hulk. They’re all upset because he has a cigar dangling out of his face “through the entire film.” They believe fanboys will tear-ass out of the theatre to the nearest cigar store or even worse, to Cuba where the cigars are better.

If you heard the AMAA’s president Dianne Fenyk freaking out on the radio June 11th, issuing press releases, and trying to intimidate the MPAA to downgrade Hulk from a PG-13 rating to an R, you might wonder why they didn’t do the same thing with Bill Clinton, whose famous cigar was used for purposes other than smoking. Nobody tried to get his rating lowered.

Even sillier is that members of Americans for the Prevention of Gamma Ray Exposure is equally upset because the Incredible Hulk promotes electromagnetic radiation for muscle-building purposes.

We’re not The Onion, and we’re not making this up.

[Editor’s Note: We looked through all 60 of the production stills that we have for The Incredible Hulk, trying to find one with General Ross (William Hurt) chomping on the cigar, but we were unable to find anything. So we are not really sure what this AMAA lady is smoking…]
