Michael Bay’s Inspiration for the Teenage Alien Ninja Turtles [pic]

If the podcasts I listen to are any indication, getting geeks to agree on anything is like herding cats.  Well, when Michael Bay announced that the next Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie throws the mutant idea out the window in favor of alien ninja turtles, geeks have unanimously agreed that Bay needs to keep his hands off the TMNT franchise.  However, the one question I have had ever since I heard of this dumbass idea is where did he even dream up this concept?  It seems we now know.

An anonymous source tells me that Michael Bay saw this picture of a turtle (named Frankie) that was dressed up as a UFO by his owner Greg Christenson and had the crazy idea to make to turn the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles into aliens.

This is why dressing your pets up is always a bad idea.  It leads to the ruining of great franchises!  Seriously though, this is a cool costume idea for anybody with a pet turtle.
