As a freelance writer who frequently covers entertainment topics, I wouldn't exactly say that my job is dangerous. It's true that sitting in front of a computer for hours each day will eventually destroy my body, but it's not like I'm parachuting into raging wildfires. However, I've decided that there are in fact times when the task of writing about Hollywood's latest offerings deserves hazard pay, and today is one of those occasions. Dear readers, I have watched the Dumb and Dumber To trailer.
In a mere 2 minutes and 40 seconds, I experienced increased intracranial pressure. My neurons ceased to function normally and saliva poured unbidden from my slackened mouth. Thankfully the natural plasticity of the human brain means my prognosis is hopeful, but I'm certain permanent damage occurred.
I have included the video here, but I must issue a stern warning: do NOT watch the Dumb and Dumber To trailer if you are operating a vehicle or caring for small children.
