"Thanks Frank, but I think we'll go with Kate's proposal this time." Frank screamed & pounded on the table. "No, mine! mine mine mine!" He tore up his meeting minutes, dropped trow and rolled around urinating on himself. Frank was a talking dog and he was trying to execute a hostile take over of Kate's sausage company. Kate held an emergency board meeting while Frank yelped at the door. They considered Frank's offer of a chewed slipper in return for absolute control of her sausage company. Kate 's co-executives worked out a counter deal:Frank would relinquish his hold of the door, & they'd consider using a DIFFERENT dog in the next sausage batch.Frank barked his decision: "I'll think about it!" The co-executives nodded in approval at his fair and even-handed decision and shuffled out the building and over a cliff. Being lemmings they were prone to re-enacting Disney's concocted stampede over the cliff. That is one of the main reasons you don't often see lemmings in Senior Executive positions. An answer came the next day; NO. But Warner Brothers was more than happy to produce The Lemming King, with hopes of cashing in on a new animated musical classic. But tragedy was to haunt the film from day one. In fact, Disney-Warner Bros. had to scrap several projects, and make back scratch by editing them into a compilation film: "Song of the Menstruating Lemming". It was a hit that none could fault in the industry! It made it to Bollywood that summer with much adulation. The only thing that was wrong with the project was a whistle-blowing insider learned the actors were all white guys wearing Indian makeup (they worked cheaper). The film executives were furious, cancelling the project immediately.

And rightly so.

The film was doomed due to Bollywood prudishness. “Song of the Lemming Whose Time of the Month Had Arrived” just isn’t a catchy enough title.

I imagine it’s pretty cheap of Disney to re-purpose their banned or otherwise obscure or controversial materials into a single film.

To spoil it for those who may not know, this is a reference to “Song of the South”, “The Story of Menstruation”, and the urban legend (does Snopes still exist?) about Disney forcing lemmings to dive off cliffs to their deaths.
