Also notice the sweet M1911A1 license plate!
The movie comes out June 24th, take your kids and educate them about John Moses Browning.
Guns? In my pixar films? No wai.
And the only thing i remember about Browning was that he made rifles out of scrap tin when he was just a wee boy :3
If that’s all you remember, pick yourself up a copy of the Holy Book of John Moses Browning. An excerpt:
1 In the beginning was the 1911, and the 1911 was THE pistol, and it was good. And behold the Lord said, “Thou shalt not muck with my disciple John’s design for it is good and it workith. For John made the 1911, and lo all of his weapons, from the designs which I, the Lord, gave him upon the mountain.”
2 “And shouldst thou muck with it, and hang all manner of foul implements upon it, and profane its internal parts, thou shalt surely have malfunctions, and in the midst of battle thou shalt surely come to harm.”
3 And as the ages passed men in their ignorance and arrogance didst forget the word of the Lord and began to profane the 1911. The tribe of the gamesman did place recoil spring guides and extended slide releases upon the 1911 and their metal smiths didst tighten the tolerances and alter parts to their liking, their clearness of mind being clouded by lust.
That is amazing. Thank you for making today awesome.
Okay, call me blasphemous, but I’m not giving up my beavertail grip safety. I think “St. John” would be okay with that.
Where can i find said book? I NEED IT.
I’m amazed you guys haven’t seen this before. Here’s the rest, it’s long:
4 Their artisans did hang all manner of foul implements upon the 1911 and did so alter it that it became impractical to purchase. For lo, the artisans didst charge a great tax upon the purchasers of the 1911 so that the lowly field worker could not afford one. And the profaning of the internal parts didst render it unworkable when the dust of the land fell upon it, and these profaners didst try and fit more rounds of ammunition into the magazines than the holy number of seven, appointed for the .45.
5 And lo, they didst install adjustable sights, which are an abomination unto the Lord. For they doth break and lose their zero when thou dost need true aim. And those who have done so will be slain in great numbers by their enemies in the great battle. a
6 And it came to pass that the Lord didst see the abomination wrought by man and didst cause, as he had warned, fearful malfunctions to come upon the abominations and upon the artisans who thought they could do no wrong.
7 Seeing the malfunctions and the confusion of men, the lord of the underworld did see an opportunity to further ensnare man and didst bring forth pistols made of plastic, whose form was such that they looked and felt like a brick, yet the eyes of man being clouded, they were consumed by the plastic pistol and did buy vast quantities of them.
8 And being a deceitful spirit, the lord of the underworld did make these plastic pistols unamenable to the artisans of earth and they were unable to muck much with the design, and lo these pistols did appear to function.
9 And the evil one also brought forth pistols in which the trigger didst both cock and fire them and which require a “dingus” to make them appear safe.
10 But man being stupid did not understand these new pistols and didst proceed to shoot themselves with the plastic pistol and with the trigger cocking pistols for lo their manual of arms required great intelligence which man had long since forsaken. Yet man continue to gloat over these new pistols blaming evil forces for the negligent discharges which they themselves had committed.
11 And when man had been totally ensnared with the plastic pistol, the lord of the underworld didst cause a plague of the terrible Ka-Boom to descend upon man and the plastic pistols delivered their retribution upon men. And there was a great wailing and gnashing of teeth in the land.
12 Then seeing that the eyes of man were slowly being opened and that man was truly sorrowful for his sinful misdeeds, the Lord did send his messengers in the form of artisans who did hear and obey the teachings of the prophet and who didst restore the profaned 1911s to their proper configuration, and lo, to the amazement of men they didst begin to work as the prophet had intended.
13 And the men of the land didst drive out the charlatans and profaners from the land, and there was joy and peace in the land, except for the evil sprits which tried occasionally to prey on the men and women of the land and who were sent to the place of eternal damnation b by the followers of John.
SO. WHERE’D YA GET IT FROM?
Google. “The Gospel according to John Moses Browning”.
Given Pixar’s rather liberal leanings, I’m sure this “character” is not going to be a good guy. But what is interesting is the actor who will be doing the voice… Bruce Campbell (from Evil Dead, Army of Darkness, Adventures of Brisco County Jr., currently Burn Notice). I’m quite curious on how that’s going to play out… and since my 7yr old son is a big Cars fan I’m sure I’ll be seeing the movie the first week it’s out.
I’ll almost bet you that Bruce said, “I’ll do the voice but I want my character to have a gun.” and Disney/Pixar said, “Yes Mr. Campbell!”
He’s a good guy amazingly enough –
Rod “Torque” Redline is considered by many as the greatest American spy in the world. Recruited after the Cold War for both his brains and brawn, Torque is a tough-as-nails Detroit muscle car with a mastery of disguises. In his latest deep-cover operation, he obtained vital information about the plot to sabotage the World Grand Prix. So Rod plans a rendezvous with his British counterparts to share his discoveries at the World Grand Prix welcome reception in Tokyo, Japan. But with the bad guys hot on his tailpipe, Rod is forced to ditch the intel early and with the first party guest he sees — a rusty American tow truck named Mater.
Well, that’s pretty cool… surprising, but cool.
I worship at The Chin’s feet… so to speak.
I’m actually impressed I saw gatling guns in the trailer, as well as firearms in The Incredibles (although mainly with the bad guys). You know a cartoon is really going politically correct though if only lasers are present. Remember the GI Joe cartoons of the 80’s?
Knowing – 50%
Red Lasers – 25%
Blue Lasers – 25%
And Sgt. Highgear it toting an SA-80 w/ bayonet.
Well, I think my post is getting hung up in the spam filter.
But there is also a car toting an SA-80 with bayonet. Sgt. Highgear.
Cool! Sorry about that.. the spam protection holds anything with links that it thinks is suspicious.
No prob. That’s what I thought was happening.
It’s nice to see Pixar actually traversed prior boundaries and added subtle weapons to their game plan.
It’ll be like Friendship is magic all over again. Made for 10-15 year old kids, but more popular with people over the age of 21 lol.
This guys sporting a gun too
Awesome. good find!
Cars seems to be on about half the cable channels right now. It’s not exactly subtle! Great movie, even if it’s an animated copy of “Doc Hollywood.”
New one looks good too — it’s obvious Disney is hot on pushing more toys. I hope no second graders get suspended for bringing these to class!
