The Jonas Brothers get a ripe idea

I can’t stop laughing.

It’s just so… so… horrible, really, but still—I can’t stop laughing.

Look; we’re fans of the Walter the Farting Dog series of books by William Kotzwinkle and Glenn Murray. Who isn’t? These books have their place in literature, and by that I mean they inspired legions of reluctant readers to love books. That they’ve done so through flatulence and the never-ending hilarity it affords, well, so be it.

The fact that there’s going to be a Walter the Farting Dog movie is… weird enough. But then yesterday I saw that Fox has landed the Jonas Brothers to appear in the film:

The title character in the “Walter” books is a fat dog with severe flatulence. The brothers play musicians whose parents are asked to care for the dog by an aunt just before she passes away.

“By the time they’ve driven the dog home, everybody’s head is out the window of the family station wagon but Frankie, and only because he has a serious sinus problem and doesn’t notice the stench coming from Walter,” said Peter Farrelly.

While his brothers play music, Frankie and the gaseous hound get involved in a plot that involves liberating a koi fish and thwarting jewel thieves.

Really? Really? That sounds so dreadful. And also like my kids will absolutely love it.
