First. Sour Patch Kids.
Burritos or popcorn. It depends on the season.
beans and cornbread. nothing like a little methane for getting the best seats
Well it's not a snack, but I love getting a cherry and cola mixed icee when I go to the movies.
The wifes... nevermind.
Popcorn with junior mints or milk duds
Bob - It's been forever since I've lived out there. So, I don't remember how the theaters are set up in Lawrence. However, I know our theater here allows people to go in and buy just popcorn to take home, without having to watch a movie. You may look into that.
Despite this response being highly predictable and anticipated, prospector wins.
raisinets ........then a sip of jack & coke.
Whatever I can sneak in.
That's what I was thinking, and I carry a really HUGE purse.
I'm there with you Bobby.

Somewhere in time, when there was still a theater on 9th & Iowa, I was sitting down to enjoy a movie. Well, maybe it was the Varsity downtown, hell it could have been the Granada. Anyway, the lights went down, and the movie started. As I was lining up my beer cans on the floor, some super klutzy dumbass next to me knocked one over, and then the dreaded domino effect came into play. The real problem was those damn sloped floors, and the propensity for full unopened beer cans to roll when they are on their sides. The whole Acceleration = Force ÷ Mass crap. Of course this happened at a quiet period of the film, so you have the synergistic effect of sloped concrete, and a full aluminum beer can combining to create that so distinct sound as they roll the 30 rows of seats down to the very front of the theater. Now take that disheartening sound and multiply it times the 8 or 9 cans of beer that were forever lost, leaving me with only 2 for the movie. So here I am, stuck in a 1-1/2 hour movie with just 2 beers, and there is of course no way in hell that I could retrieve the cans from the front of the theater, the movie was playing. Plus they would have sprayed over half of the theater when I pulled the tab, leaving me with just foam. So I decide to get a tub of that super-buttery popcorn. The stuff was rancid or something, anyway, it did not play well with my stomach, and well, you know the story.
So no vomit inducing super-buttery movie popcorn ever again.
And that is the last time I went to a theater.
I'm disappointed in you people. I left the door wide open with my 5:53 remark and not a single one of you jokers walked in. Oh well. You've been called out. Anything posted past this time won't count.
You weren't first. Only posts that begin with "First" count.
Get off the pipe. I didn't mention anything about "First".
You just can't put a price on a good nap.
Southwind is such a dirt theatre, I wish we had a decent one.

Popcorn with Hot Talmales sooooo gooood
The Sith strikes again! Is "mammaries" a bad word or was it the word "groped" that did it?
You guys really need to have a set standard or at least let two other people read the posts because it may just be YOU who has no sense of humor (oh, and a few weeks ago you said that if ANYONE uses a word like a$$ or anyother word of that ilk you remove the post...look around kids)
HollisBrown for managing editor of LJW!!!
I don't remember saying you can't use the word "a$$." You can't directly insult another user by calling them an ass or use the modified version of ass that ends in hole, but generally that word is fine. If I did say you can't use it, I apologize for the confusion.
Hot blooded, every night
Hot blooded, you're looking so tight
Hot blooded, now you're driving me wild
Hot blooded, I'm so hot for you, child
Hot blooded, I'm a little bit high
Hot blooded, you're a little bit shy
Hot blooded, you're making me sing
Hot blooded, for your sweet sweet thing
"Ass" is fine as long as you're riding into town on a religious feast day.
Sally, you didn't tell us we can't say ass. In fact, you have never told us what words we can't use. Now might be the time to publish Wendy's list of non-negotiable, naughty words -- all the words not fit to print.
Good call. I'll think about this over the next couple of weeks, since I'd want to do something that's thorough, clear and accessible for everyone.
Whitney's going all George Carlin on us! She was such a nice girl when she got here. Ya'll have ruined her. Now she'll NEVER find a nice man.
"the modified version of ass that ends in hole"
I don't understand. Can you explain that? How might that be spelled?
Junior Mints or Nachos with lots of jalepenos.
Eww... jalapenos with Junior Mints? Yuck!
your forgiven cutie...
You sure you are not a bullock?
With lots of butter?
Popcorn, with lots of butter and salt. But really anymore, I agree with that A$$ T_O_B, I watch movies at home. I see about one movie a year at the theaters.
The old Fox Theater in downtown Topeka used to sell a soda pop called Green River which was bright green. Used to get that with one of the huge (to a 10 year old) whole dill pickles they sold out of a jar. They'd wrap it in white paper for you so pickle juice wouldn't run down your arm quite so much.
It's only a lion because it was in MO. If it had been in KS, it would still be "unconfirmed".
The chocolate-covered worms of my home worlds. My eating orifice is watering with the thought!
I'm reading these posts and wondering why we don't step in more barf at the theater. How can we do such things to our bodies and live to tell of it?
