Misadventure of a popcorn virgin

A New York insurance broker damaged a tooth when biting on an unpopped popcorn kernel at a movie theater. He sued the movie theater for $1,250 (the cost of the dental work.) Fortunately, the judge ruled that it was not reasonable to expect every kernel to be popped and ruled against this idiot.

This idiot is either the world’s best popcorn maker (every one of his kernels is popped) or a popcorn virgin. The likelihood that he is the best popcorn maker in the world is is about the same as that of President Bush (at any point in the future) being considered the greatest president this country has ever had.

If I was the judge, I would also have made this idiot pay the theater’s legal fees.
