Walter Mencken 11 a.m., May 24
So before last night's Green Lantern screening, a representative from ComicsOnline.com came out with a little bag full of Flash and Green Lantern rings. "Is everyone excited to see Green Lantern?" he asked.
A few people clapped.
"Wow," he said. "Theater 17 was a lot more enthusiastic."
Then he asked some Green Lantern trivia questions, and threw rings to those who answered them correctly. (Worryingly, no one knew the oath.)
As he was preparing to leave, he shouted, "What movie are you guys gonna see?"
A mild chorus replied, "Green Lantern."
"You guys are not enthusiastic!" he shouted back. "What movie are you going to see?!"
A mildly less mild chorus replied, "Green Lantern."
It made me think of this. Funny, that.
