The kids got home from school and we ate a quick dinner because we had BIG PLANS! We were going to a school family function.......drive-in movie night. Grab your blanket and a bucket of popcorn and settle in for a little quality time with the family watching a great double feature, right?
Sure. We excitedly packed our blankets and snacks and headed off to the drive-in. We watched a cute movie about hamsters who are a special ops force for the government. They thwarted the evil plans of a mole ( a real mole who played a "mole" in the special ops force)(how convenient). Anyway, the plot rolls along and comes to a happy conclusion as all furry creatures involved lived happily ever after (including the evil mole who had a change of heart)(of course)(hey, it's a kids' movie).
On to the second movie. Once again, sweet kids' movie.....this time Night at the Museum 2..........what a wonderful time.......isn't this nice.....what's that?? Oh, good! They just started ANOTHER movie on a second screen at the back of the drive-in.
Great! Oh, wow, it's about clowns.
BUT, not just any clown. This is a clown that no child will ever forget!!
Oh, my! We don't want to frighten our kids with images of a scary clown chasing people around trying to hurt them. Instead, let's make the movie safer feeling for the kids by KILLING THE CLOWN!!!
Yes, that's right folks. I took my kids to a drive-in movie tonight for a school function and while we were there they showed the new R-rated movie "Zombieland". Oops. Someone apparently didn't consult the schedule very closely.
I wonder how this will play out in the principal's office Monday morning when his phone lines are lit up by angry parents.
I think I'll stick with my own clowns.....they're cuter!
