The movie Bohemian Rhapsody opens today. In the mid-1970's the song itself was a spectacular hit in Great Britain, but it only had moderate success in the US where it rose only as far as No. 9 on Billboard's Hot 100.
In one scene of the movie Freddie Mercury threatens to walk out on a record company executive if he doesn't release Bohemian Rhapsody as the first single off the "A Night at the Opera" album. The executive is played by Mike Meyers, a casting choice made with purposeful irony because the film Wayne's World, released in 1992 and starring Mike Meyers and Dana Carvey, was responsible for introducing Bohemian Rhapsody to a new generation of American music fans. After the film's release Bohemian Rhapsody rose to No. 2 on the American charts.

As well, Mike Meyers had to fight to have Bohemian Rhapsody used as the song. The execs wanted a Guns 'N Roses song at the time. Mike threatened to walk from the film... and they backed down and let him do the song.

Reminds me of one of my favorite jokes. I preapologize for the language but it is central to the joke.
So the judge says to Mickey, "I can't give you a divorce just because you say your wife is crazy" Mickey responds(in a Mickey Mouse voice if possible) "Judge, I did not say she was crazy, I said she was fucking Goofy."
Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts
"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.
If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?
