A Pirate's Dignity.

A Calgary man was busted for video piracy when he was caught with a recording device in a theater.

If you're like me, the first thing you thought was "What movie was he busted at?". (He was caught while recording Sweeny Todd)

I'm waiting patiently for the guy who gets apprehended while trying to record The Land Before Time 28 - Aren't These Fucking Dinos Dead Yet?. It's bad enough that they are going to get caught and prosecuted, but to be taken in while trying to smuggle that type of shlock? Inconceivable.

I can see the trial:

"Your Honor, the suspect was noticed by police for his suspicious behavior."
"Which was..?"
"He was a lone 20-year old man sitting by himself at a kids movie, sir."
"I see..."
"Originally we thought he was a pedophile, but it turned out he was just recording the movie."
"You're sure he's not a pedophile?"
"Yes, sir. It was The Land Before Time - so we just think he's retarded."

It should be priceless.

  1. When I have alzheimers, and technically have special needs - different from the ones I have now - can I THEN bring a recorder into the theatre?

    Bah, screw that. I'll buy 4 movies and watch all four of them every day with my new friends.
