Wot About The Punchline?

Maybe They Were Playing It For Laughs

A British couple in Lincoln who went to see a play billed as capable of making you "laugh until they throw you out" were thrown out - for laughing. They were told not to go back into the auditorium, as other theatre-goers had complained they were "laughing at moments that weren't funny, kicking the seats in front and being loud".

Well it lived up to it's name then. They laughed till they were thrown out!

(Although I am not sure why they would kick seats when laughing...)

Surely laughing at things is a matter of opinion when and how long for.
Bureaucracy gone mad again!

I would have been thrown out I'm sure. My sense of humour has goy me into trouble more times than I could mention!
This story is right up my street! Obviously the rest had no sense of humour or didn't get the jokes.
