This story gets a big Whiskey Tango Foxtrot. Up in Lancaster over the weekend, a man who asked a woman to stop talking on her cell phone during a movie was stabbed in the neck with a meat thermometer by the woman's apparent enraged boyfriend and another friend (yes, how dare he ask for silence during a movie, right? Geeeeez.). The man is expected to survive and two others who came to his aid were also injured during the incident at the Cinemark 22 theatre, according to KTLA. L.A. County Sheriff's say there are two male black suspects in the case that got a way. Update: The movie was Shutter Island.
