This strikes pure, unadulterated terror into my heart.
"Two live diamondback rattlesnakes were released in an Arizona movie theater during a showing of the new film 'Snakes on a Plane,' " reports the Internet Broadcasting System:
Authorities said pranksters released the young venomous rattlesnakes in a dark theater at the AMC Desert Ridge near Tatum and Loop 101 in Phoenix.
The two snakes caused a panic in the dark theater, according to the report.
"That to me is very scary," herpetological association representative Tom Whiting said. "I would hate to be watching a movie about snakes and have a rattlesnake bite me."
Why couldn't they have been more considerate and released them in the theater showing "Barnyard: The Original Party Animal" instead?
He makes a good point. Except, of course, for the fact that there are children at "Barnyard: The Original Party Animal!" Go ahead guys, release live snakes into a theatre full of kids!
I'm horrified, and yet, deep deep down there's a part of me that goes, "y'know, that's actually kind of a funny idea."
Oh, don't make that face at me! I said it was "deep deep down." I would never do something like...
y'know, if they made a sequel...
