Whose idea was it to allow popcorn in movie theaters? I understand their advantages as a snack – addictive salty taste, crisp crunchy feel, light in the stomach, heavy on the pocketbook – however, popped corn is by far the noisiest snack in existence! How can I focus on a movie when I am bombarded by people snacking in surround sound? What’s worse is when it is accompanied by the opening of candy wrappers. The movie people always warn us to silence our cell phones… but what about our mouths?
