Lions And Tigers And Bears Oh My God Will You Sad Hacks Just Knock It Off

Here's a screen cap of the headline from a recent Salon article:

I have only one thing to say:

Stop it. Just fucking stop it.

When writers can't think of something to say but have three nouns at their disposal, why why why do they always end up pathetically referencing a seventy-year-old movie, appropriating and altering a quote that hasn't been the least bit amusing in at least sixty of those years?

The last even remotely successful use of any variant of the "Wizard of Oz" line was in "The Emperor's New Groove", and that was ten years ago, and it was the least funny joke in the entire production: if "The Emperor's New Groove", one of the cleverest movies of the last couple of decades, can't make something funny, then the rest of the world has no hope at all, so seriously, fucking drop it forever.
