DecemberNitro: *falls off stage, dies*

I was volunteering with a children's (7-14) community theatre company years ago. One of the kids was just a little shiat, you know? Always acting out for attention, always cracking "jokes" that weren't funny - he'd intentionally flub his lines during audition and "accidentally" say "booger" or something.

Anyway, one of the rules there was that every kid gets some sort of part in the show. We were doing...I think it was Into the Woods. Anyway, there was a cow. This kid, not surprisingly, became the back end of a cow.

The show was put on in an actual theatre, with a stage and a (small) orchestra pit.

On opening night, the cow comes on and wanders around stage. The little shiat kid, whose only job was to follow the other kid around while under a sheet and stand still when the cow stands still, starts farking around. While the cow is standing still at one point, he starts kinda dancing, stomping his feet, visibly picking his nose under the sheet, that sort of thing.

Finally, this ends with him wandering off a bit and falling off the damn stage into the orchestra pit, pulling the cow costume off of the other kid. We had to stop production, go fish him out of the orchestra pit (he was unhurt, but he acted like he'd broken every bone in his body). We asked him to not return.

That's how I felt when I read about Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark.
