Theater Packed With Children Accidentally Shown Saw 3D; In Related News Thousands Of Therapists Grow Dollar Sign Eyeballs

    A theater full of children expected to see Mega-Mind. Instead they got Saw 3D and a fresh batch of the Hershey Squirts in their underwear (Hint – that isn’t a candy available at the refreshment stand.)

    Children were at Showcase Cinemas to see a Dreamworks cartoon in 3D, but instead they saw the horror movie “Saw 3-D.” Parents said when the previews came on they started to worry because the previews were a little advanced for children.

    They never expected the gore and violent horror film “Saw.”

    Sure. Sure. Previews are a clue. I’m no Angela Lansbury but also a clue: the big words SAW 3D on the screen. Case closed.

    The children were told to cover their eyes in the scenes of murder and mutilation played for several minutes before the movie theater corrected the problem. Theatre operators realized the mistake and the correct movie, “Megamind,” was put on, but parents said the damage was already done and their children are still shaken by it.

    Damn it! You’re supposed to put SPOILER! Now you’ve ruined Saw 3D. “The damage was already done” is precursor for “filed a class action lawsuit.” These kids are going to milk this for all it’s worth. “I’d love to ___________ Mom, but Saw really screwed me up. Where are my meds? I’ll be in my room playing Call of Duty.”

    The children were given one free ticket as a result of the mix up, but the Rau family’s 7-year-old son told them that he does not want to see a movie again for a very long time.

    Yup. That’s also how I feel after most Will Ferrell movies.
