Quote of the Day

Here's one of the best ideas I've heard in a long time:

'Virtually every theater makes a pre-show announcement about turning off cell phones, beepers and watch alarms. Soon after, the audience delivers the first laugh of the night, after a disembodied voice tells them to unwrap their candies now.

But here, at Ohio Light Opera in Wooster, there’s an announcement I’ve never heard, but one that hits the spot: “And please don’t talk during the overture.”'

i'm still suprised that people always laugh at the "unwrap your candies now" business. It's not new friends and it's not that funny either. Also, annoying when people STILL make noise unwrapping!
