Silly story of the day: Silent movie filmgoers complain about The Artist's silence
Now might be the time to give up on any hope for the future of humanity.
Film-goers in Liverpool have apparently demanded refunds after rocking up to see silent movie, The Artist, then complaining that it doesn't have any sound.
Cinema chain Odeon initially denied claims that staff had started asking customers if they knew it was a silent film due to complaints.
They then released this statement: "
These people are morons. Odeon Liverpool One can confirm it has issued a small number of refunds to guests who were unaware that The Artist is a silent film."
The Golden-Globe-winning-film's director Michael Hazanavicius has described the news as "hilarious". Uggie the dog was too busy out-thinking an entire British city to comment.
