Sometimes when you’re at the theatre watching a comedy, they’ll show outtakes at the end of the movie. Tonight, Han, George and I were at the theatre watching the movie 300. Far from a comedy, and with no chance of seeing outtakes at the end, we were entertained in other ways.
Precisely at the most pivotal and somber point in the movie, a man was walking down the stairs on the left side of the theatre; and just as he was stepping down the last few stairs he took an all-out nose dive head first and landed on the bottom walkway. It took him a couple seconds to stand up at which point he shook it off and slowly started walking. At that moment at least a dozen people in the audience were laughing. Others joined in and soon the whole theatre was clapping and cheering for the man. In an effort to curtail his embarrassment the man put his hands up in the air in a George Costanza-like fashion as if to say “Thank-you, Thank-you very much” as he exited the theatre.
