I suck at updating my blog! 

Right. Now on to something I really care about.
I read an article that was linked from Fark.com, my favorite new hangout. It concerns a young man thrown out of a theater for laughing too loudly during a showing of The Pink Panther. They actually threw this guy out of the theater!
At first, I was incensed! They've got some nerve!
Then I went ahead an read the whole article. That'll teach me. It seems the guy has a disability that sometimes causes him to break out in loud uncontrollable laughter. (Sounds almost as bad as Tourette Syndrome.)
People were complaining about how loud he was. Now it's nice that the theater has offered to give him a free personalized showing, but I think they're bending over backwards.
What if this guy had uncontrollable farting? What if he had Tourettes? Would we be so angry that he was thrown out?
I always wonder why the poor disabled guy gets the special attention and those of us who pay to actually hear all of the lines in a movie have to put up with something annoying (people who leave their cell phone rings on in theaters need to be shot). I know it's not his fault and I certainly don't blame him.
I blame his mother. Why the hell would she take him to see the movie knowing that funny things make him laugh loudly and uncontrollably? Geeze. Don't we abled people have rights, too?

Although, as I understand it, there's not that much to laugh about in that movie. Maybe she thought?... Nahhh
