“Getting Shrek’d” has a whole other meaning now


Hates_escalators

I was only at least eighteen years old, I loved Shrek so much I had all the Shrek movies and merchandise. I prayed to my lord Shrek every night, thanking him for the wonderful life I'd been given. "Shrek is love," I'd say. "Shrek is life." My father hears me this and slaps me, calling me a donkey. I knew that he was only jealous of my devotion to Shrek. I slaps him back and calls him a Farquaad and he sands me to bad without any onions oup. I am crying now and my face hurts, I'm making my way up to my bedroom, the cold bare floorboards are so cold on my bare feet and I see the door is slightly ajar and the light is on. I gently open the door, and am suddenly overwhelmed by the smell of onions and see a figure seated on my bed. The figure turns. It's Shrek! "This is my swamp," he says as he lifts me up with his powerful yet soft ogre hands and places me on the bed on my hands and knees. I am ready....... Shrek then leaves out my open window into the dark cold night without doing anything even vaguely sexual to me. Shrek is love. Shrek is life.

What the flip


VextonHerstellerEDH

Tastes like pasta


Datpanda1999

It is, though it’s been changed a bit


Hates_escalators

I always write it out each time so it's not always the same. I have done a couple versions where some of the original 'stuff' happens but they're not a kid because ick. All of the typos and misspellings are intentional


Datpanda1999

Yeah the age in the original one always bothered me. I’m glad you changed it


Hates_escalators

I can't link the original video because NSFW language


cynthic

You scared the hell out of me. I thought I was reading a modified version of the cursed copy pasta. Then it turns out to be wholesome in the end.

I do it for Shrek


Hates_escalators

I push against his force

Shrek is love

Yes, I’m not even remotely religious and I know that historically speak the Book of Exodus are all fictitious events, but Prince of Egypt was an amazing movie. Beautiful images, great songs, epic themes, it is one of my favorite DreamWorks up there with Road to El Dorado.

This would be a good subreddit name.


pongobuff

A good part of Exodus is non-fiction, the treatment and migration of the Jews


ZoeLaMort

> The consensus among modern scholars is that the story in the Book of Exodus is best understood as a myth, and does not describe historical events. [Wikipedia: Book of Exodus](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Book_of_Exodus)


SushiGolerk

Wikipedia is great for finding sources, but should never be invoked as a source itself.


Dunderbaer

This exact quote has the following source: Collins, John J. (2005). The Bible After Babel: Historical Criticism in a Postmodern Age. Eerdmans. ISBN 9780802828927.

You can say that about a ton of things in the Bible. I mean, you'd be hard pressed to find a historian worth their salt that would say Jesus didn't exist. The claims about His miracles and resurrection and such are what is disagreed upon.

I never even heard of Prince of Egypt tbh


Jauxsonn

You should give it a watch. Even if you aren't religious, it is a great movie. In fact, with the exception of the VeggieTales series, it is one of the best Christian based films I have ever seen. For reference, I am a Christian.


wolfenyeager

Prince of Egypt is hella underrated, prob cause religion


blac_sheep90

And getting to possibly work with the original Shrek voice must have sucked! Some dude named Chris Farley.


GrandMoffTarkan

Meanwhile at Disney someone got thrown off Poccahantas to work on the dead end Lion King


Bitten_byte

Me: hey this shouldn't be here, isn't there a rule that needs to be 20 years ago? Googles shrek, remembers it came out in 2001. I fell old.


Jauxsonn

I'll make you feel worse: 'Frozen' was 9 years ago.


Hates_escalators

I have actually never seen that movie fortunately


gkiller0

Prince of Egypt was a failure ?, how , that movie was amazing it have incredible animation, very good use of 3d and 2d and is base on one of the most known stories of the bible.


Jauxsonn

They aren't saying the movie was a failure. It is saying people failed - not delivering on deadlines, bad animation, things like that - while working on it and their punishment was being reassigned to work on 'Shrek.'


ManOfLaBook

What's the context of "failing on Prince of Egypt"? It opened to commercial and critical acclaim.


FenHarels_Heart

Not working hard enough or failing to meet quality standards. They're talking about the development of the movies.


ManOfLaBook

Thanks, didn't know that. I thought the movie was fantastic.


AnInconspiciousfish

The higher-ups were probably just being dickheads. The movie was phenomenal

granitebuckeyes

People aren’t happy about the phrase “failing on Prince of Egypt” in the meme, but this article uses almost exactly the same wording. https://nypost.com/2010/05/16/ugly-green-montrous/amp/ ETA: Having read the full article now, it was a very different film at that time. Essentially everybody who was Shreked was let go and they started over, eventually making the masterpiece with new people.


pvtie

the fact that I don't know what the fuck Prince Of Egypt is really proves this point


ThyCringeKing

Watch it! It’s such a good movie!


Accomplished_Mix7827

It's really good. It's a beautifully-animated musical about the Exodus. In Jewish circles, it is *the* Passover movie.


dinguslinguist

Sir I believe you’re ignoring A Rugrats Passover


Accomplished_Mix7827

You're right, one of two iconic Passover films.


ManOfLaBook

The biblical story of the book of Exodus. Fantastic movie. We watch it every year at this time


blizzard2798c

It's great. Has a ridiculous cast that I never picked up on as a kid


Whooshed_me

It's a religious movie that even non religious people should be able to enjoy for it's overall quality.


CrescentPotato

It's a religious movie that barely focuses on religion itself


deliriousgoomba

It's a gorgeous movie. Top to bottom, absolutely S class movie. It's breathtaking.


RexLynxPRT

No f*cking way is Shrek 20 years... Holy sh*t... You just made me feel old...


Bokbok95

They didn’t fail prince of Egypt that was a good movie


Half-Assed_Hero

Pretty sure they meant failing to meet development/production deadlines, not the final product.


DhananjayAshok

This being history shocks me


HunLepto

Shrek 1 was such a phenomenal movie for sure, it's still one of my favorite childhood movies. 2nd one was still good, but anything made after that shouldn't be called a Shrek movie and should be treated as a separate movie series instead.
