Woman Pretends To Be Pregnant So She Could Sneak Snacks Into Cinema
Every now and then the internet lights up with news of a ‘genius’ life-hack. Sometimes the idea is inspired, sometimes it’s a little hackneyed, sometimes it just seems like it’d be kind of a good idea except for the fact that the ‘problem’ it solves isn’t actually that much of a problem. Take this solution to getting snacks into the cinema for example…
Now, maybe things are different overseas, but I don’t remember the last time I had trouble taking snacks into the cinema. Because I am tighter than a nun’s naughty, taking food from the supermarket into the cinema is my modus operandi, and I’ve never had to pretend I was pregnant.
In recent weeks I’ve taken a vast range of junk food into the cinema: cream buns, a toblerone, pistachio nuts, chocolate milk, maltesers, you get the idea. More than that, much to my beautiful fiancee’s chagrin, I regularly take four or five beers, a bottle opener and a f*****g stubbie cooler into the cinema. How? I use a state of the art invention called a bag. Seriously, you blokes should get one. They hold all sorts of sh**. Pretty handy things.
I dunno, maybe I’m just a cynical old b*****d and it’s actually difficult to get food into cinemas overseas. Anyway, what I reckon is probably unimportant, but some chick has gone viral for her method of getting goodies into a cinema: she pretends she’s up the duff.
Yep, she’s got a big polystyrene bowl that she fills with goodies and puts under her shirt. After all who’s gonna question a pregnant woman?
I guess the biggest benefit of it is that you can use it as a bowl, but doesn’t that defeat the purpose of sneaking it into the cinema in the first place. magine the usher walking up the aisle, shining his torch across the patrons, hoping desperately to see some bloke trying to fool his missus with the popcorn trick, when lo and behold, some bint’s got a f*****g bowl full of goodies.
If he’s like any usher I’ve ever seen he’d wonder who gives a f*** and why she didn’t just use a bag.
What do you reckon? Would you try it or would you just use a bloody bag?
