at the movies

I was at a movie last week.

There was one scene where one of the characters, this really dorky looking guy with a hat, walks into a restaurant and asks the crowd in general "Have any of you read books that have then influenced your lives?"

One man in the crowd raises his hand and says "I read Lolita and ever since then I have been molesting teenage girls."

Everyone in the theatre burst into laughter.

There was a row of five young women sitting together.

There was no laughter from that row.

Silence.
