A couple of years ago my maternal family was shocked to learn that DreamWorks would be making a movie about a big green ogre who shared their last name. No one knew what an ogre was, at the time no one expected him to be remotely lovable, and it quickly became known that their last name meant “Fear” in German.
Thank goodness for the Irish.
I always thought this was funny because it really brought Shrek and me closer together and I could make fun of my cousins but I could hide behind my paternal last name and it was only something that people found out about me when I wanted to use it as a fun fact.
Karma has retaliated.
I would like to thank Eli Roth for taking on the project to make a movie about a shark named Meg. I can’t even hide from this one once I’ve gotten married. It was bad enough getting compared to the loser sister on Family Guy, but now I’m going to be a giant, prehistoric, man eating shark? That just isn’t fair…

Get ready… I’m coming… Insert Jaws music here…
