    Edit: apparently there will be not one but TWO sequels. Huzzah!

As they left the woman said to the man, clearly referring to what she had only just seen, "God, that was awful."

    I'm still annoyed that I didn't have the quick-wittedness to yell "bigots" at them as they left. As it was I spent the next 15 minutes quietly…
