Don’t sue over spilt popcorn.

8 Mar

Some man (read: asshat) in Livonia, MI, sued an AMC theatre because of a movie snack tab. Various articles report he paid eight dollars for popcorn and a soda. Some say popcorn and Goobers. Some say that he didn’t buy anything but was pissed he couldn’t bring in outside eats.

But they all said he hired a lawyer and is suing. Over popcorn.

Are you fucking kidding me? We all know popcorn is delicious. We all know movie snacks are expensive—they have to be! Theatres don’t make tons of money on the actual ticket prices, after all. Their profits come from the sugary and salty treats.

But even still, to sue? Over a Lincoln and some Washingtons?

This is why people hate our country. Because we’re fucking brats with swizzle sticks up our asses.

“He got tired of being taken advantage of,” the asshat’s lawyer told the the Detroit Free Press. “It’s hard to justify prices that are three and four times higher than anywhere else.”

Louis Vuitton handbags cost like a thousand times more than the cheap handbag I schlep around, and you don’t see me crying blood all over the place.

Besides, has this guy even tasted movie theatre popcorn? It’s like crunchy pieces of angel wings. It’s totally worth the upcharge in my humble opinion.

Mmm. Maybe it’s time to go see a movie.

Oh, so that's why movie popcorn is so expensive.
