    Why not 5...Bg4? Bad bishop is gone and Black can make White choose between either protecting his pawn on e5 or on b4.

    If amateurs worried about practical endings as much as obscure openings we'd all be masters by now.

    this opening happens in the french after the following moves..

    with obscure compensation for the pawn, in my experience playing against this position, white's compensation gives him barely an = game, most of the threats are superficial...direct, but his lead in development makes up for that. The position is roughly = in my opinion, and like BEES says, why not 5..Bg4?, it is definitely an improvement over the french continuation move order line, so....

    It's funny, but nobody seems to want to take that pawn anymore!!!

    But that's the point..... black doesn't take the pawn!?  Am I in some alternate universe here?!  After 3.b4 ..... what's black's plan?

    Lol, I was referring to the d5 pawn. 

    Yeah it is funny and your alone on this one.

    Sorry but the Black  move of c4 is misguided as much as the White move e5.

    Here is the basic rule, do not move a pawn twice in the opening unless you have a very good reason.

    Black's move 1. e4  d5  2. e5?  c5! is not a greedy grab for the center, It is just the best move available and gives Black a slight advantage.

    This line came up in a blitz game. It was pretty funny......

         Even better if black grabs the pawn on e5........

    Apparently, I was too cautious in my initial assessment. 3.B4 seems to win for white in all variations......

    Ok, don't clobber me..... I don't seriously think this is a good line for white. I just like posting funny games that miraculously turn out in my favor.
