Snack on this, om­ni­plex

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

Time for yet more lit­i­ga­tion news. It has emerged that a film­goer in Detroit is su­ing his lo­cal cinema over the out­ra­geous prices it charges for snack food. Joshua Thompson ob­jected to pay­ing $8 for a Coke and a packet of Goobers (some class of choco­late-cov­ered nut), when the same pro­duce could be pur­chased for just $2.73 in a store.

“He got tired of be­ing taken ad­van­tage of,” Kerry Mor­gan, his lawyer, said. “It’s hard to jus­tify prices that are three and four times higher than any­where else.”

To para­phrase Lionel Hutz from The Simp­sons, I don’t use the word “hero” lightly, but Josh is, per­haps, the great­est hero in moviego­ing his­tory.
