Shocked at the Mocking of Dukes of Hazzard 

Ben Jones, fka Cooter the mechanic on TV's Dukes of Hazzard and former Member of Congress, is all riled up over the script for the upcoming big screen remake of the campy show. He feels the movie "mocks the good clean family values" of the original.

Please. Moonshine running brothers, a sister who was most famous for her skimpy shorts and tied up shirts and distracting the brothers' adversaries, incompetent police officers, corrupt city officials and lengthy featuring of reckless driving including rocket modifications that likely aren't actually street legal.

Not to mention the quality of the scripts and acting.

I'm shocked, shocked to learn that someone is mocking this show. But in case you're thinking of following Jones' advice and skipping the flick, be aware that you'll also be missing out on Lynda Carter, of that most family friendly of shows, Wonder Woman.
