So two atheists walk into a movie theater…

... and one of them is expelled. Actually, one was expelled and the other was Expelled.

This has to be read to be believed. Normally I'd add that the

manager movie producer obviously had good taste, but there's no way I can make my usual sarcastic snark about PZ here, because the manager of the theater producer is obviously a total jerk. He's within his rights, but that doesn't make him any less of a tool.

A few updates: Here's a (very NSFW language-ridden) first-hand account of what happened from someone who was right there. You may be amused to hear that the Kevin Miller, who wrote the movie, has a fallacious account of what happened on his blog; the spin is that PZ wasn't invited, though the truth is you didn't need an invitation to go. He also links to another account that is at very strict odds against PZ's own account and that of the other first-hand witness. Oh, those wacky creationists! Is there nothing they can't lie about?

Another update (March 22): PZ has posted clarifying (to me at least) that it was the producer of the movie who had him thrown out, not the theater manager. I wanted to make sure that this was corrected, because I certainly don't want innocent people to be falsely accused of anything.
