    N.Y. Judge: Broken-Tooth Popcorn Suit's a Dud


    NEW YORK (AP) -- Movie munchers beware! A New York judge says popcorn purchasers worried about breaking a tooth on unpopped kernels should nibble carefully -- or eat something else.

    Insurance broker Steve Kaplan says he encountered a double dud while watching the movie ``Superbad'' at the AMC-Lincoln Square Cinema a year ago: His tooth hurt and the movie was awful.

    Kaplan sued to recover $1,250 for dental repairs. But Manhattan Civil Court Judge Matthew Cooper ruled that Kaplan could not reasonably expect every kernel to be popped.
    I expect that this judge will be removed from the bench for employing common sense.

    Oh, I believe he really had a broken tooth from the popcorn; that's a common occurrence. That's also a known hazard of popcorn consumption. I'm just shocked that a judge would recognize the hazard.
