Epic Laughs

Three yuppies that will pass as college students (if not high school…OK, I won’t push it) entered an almost empty cinema.

One’s a graduate of Ateneo; the other two are from UP.

All three wore eyeglasses.

One brought a medium-sized can of original flavored Pik-nik. One wore barong. One almost choked from a single shoestring potato the other one brought.

All three laughed the loudest in a cinema that’s almost empty. All three laughed like they rented the theater for themselves. All three laughed at a movie that’s nothing but silly.


One may think that the three yuppies would pass as smart people. One will wonder why such smart people are laughing at something that’s nothing but silly. One will say, “Hmmm….”

All may think that the movie was silly. All will wonder why such silly movie draws audiences at all—and smart ones at that. All will say, “Three yuppies that will pass as college students who all wore eyeglasses, who laughed the loudest in a cinema that’s almost empty, who laughed like they rented the theater for themselves, who laughed at a movie that’s nothing but silly make Epic Movie funnier that it really is.”
