Another Entry in the "No Shit" File

Another entry into the "No Shit, Sherlock" news category.  Turns out, some of the food you can buy at movie theatre concessions stands is bad for you...

According to the article, Six Worst Things to Eat at the Movies (and this may shock you) the large tub of heavily buttered popcorn you just crushed before the movie was 10 minutes old?  Yup, just as you suspected.... BAD FOR YOU, to the tune of 1,283 calories 78 grams of fat, 49 grams of saturated fat (2.5 days worth)!

A full box of "bite sized Snickers?"  ALSO bad for you!!!  It only gets worse, nachos with fake cheese, whoppers, super-tankers of pop.  None of it good for you.

The best part?  The URL: "" - really?  It took an expert to tell us this information?  A health expert?  God save us all.  It only gets worse when the user generated content section tells us that "78% of users found this article helpful!"  Holy hell.  We are doomed.

If I may challenge the health experts at - I could rewrite this article a bit more briefly:
100% of snacks at movie theater are unhealthy, possibly deadly, served in portions that could kill someone from Mississippi.
