Toronto’s Grip Limited Gets, *Ahem*, Acquired by OmniCorp

Well, you can guess where this is going on this auspicious day, but Toronto-based Grip Limited, which has previously handed over creative duties to 10-year-olds, has been “acquired” by something called OmniCorp, a company that’s apparently posted $3.2 billion in profits last year.

Here’s one choice line from the announce:

“‘We couldn’t be happier about joining the OmniCorp family,” said visibly distressed founding partner David Crichton. “The technical and digital knowhow that OmniCorp brings to the table is unparalleled in the industry,’ Crichton explained between shrieks of pain as a titanium claw tightened around his neck.”

Above is one depiction that shows James Cameron‘s dream lives on. Go here for more info on this unusual, potentially apocalyptic agreement.
