Apparently not all Harry Potter fans are sissies

From Sky News:

Police have charged a teen over a bleach attack on a mother who had asked a group to be quiet during a Harry Potter film.  The 46-year-old woman was with her husband and two children at the Vue cinema in Leeds, Britain, last week.  During a screening of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince she asked a group of at least five teenagers to stop making a noise. West Yorkshire Police said two people in the group followed the family to a nearby restaurant after the screening and threw bleach over the mother’s head and back.

She suffered burns to her skin and possible permanent damage to her eyes.  A 16-year-old boy will appear before a Leeds magistrate on Monday, charged with wounding with intent to commit grievous bodily harm.  Police said another teen was arrested over the incident, but has been released on bail pending further inquiries.

Clearly the kids are to blame for this whole incident, but this is why you have to watch your mouth in public these days.  You might think you’re the tough-talking king-of-the-hill when you’re shushing someone at the movies, but they might be prepared to take the disagreement ten degrees deeper than SSSSH!  When Jess and I went to see Funny People last friday, there was a 5 year old in the theater.  At first I thought we were in the wrong place, I went back out, asked the manager (suit) guy if theater 2 was where they were showing the movie.  He said it was.  I asked him if Funny People was still rated R.  He told me it was.  I told him there was a five year old in the theater.  He made a face like he tasted poop on his toothbrush and turned away from me.

Honestly, I’m not sure the 5 year old actually spoke English, but it’s still terrible parenting.  This story still isn’t as good as the Fat Kid in Florida who got so jazzed by seeing the movie 300 3 times in a row, that he kicked a bitchy girl at the evening screening down a flight of stairs while screaming “This IS Sparta.”

Now that’s a STORY!
