Shocked by California's $17-billion cuts in education in the past two years, with $2.5 billion more in the offing, Stacey Attanasio-Gonsalves produced a grassroots video with help from parents at L.A.'s Wonderland school "to support the efforts of the California statewide PTA to prompt folks to take action," she wrote in an April 8 email. When she enlisted parent Brian Austin Green and actress Megan Fox (who may be the next Red Sonja) to star in the video, Funny or Die got behind it. The video (below) grabbed 150,000 hits soon after it went live Thursday morning. "Call, write, and annoy the governor until he cries for his Mommy," exhorts Fox.

The video pissed me off so much that I just signed this Say No to Cuts petition.
