I'm not sure why, but I'm not a big fan of Kevin Smith movies. Trust me, I've tried to like them and want to like them, but I just don't get his films. Outside of a few memorable moments – the roof hockey scene in Clerks, the three-nippled psychic from Mall Rats, Salma Hayek stripping in Dogma – they're all, as a whole, kind of boring.
I'm sharing these sure to be hated and vilified thoughts on Kevin Smith because he ran into Marty and Patti Hansen while dining at a Pappasito's at the DFW airport. At first he thought they were the typical old boring white married couple, but after they recognized him and bought his meal, they totally changed his mind. Kevin then wrote a very inspirational / sappy Facebook post about the experience. In just 24 hours, it's received over 215,000 Likes and 12,000 shares.

In addition to Kevin Smith movies, know what else I don't get? How this post received 216,000 likes and nearly 12,000 shares. I know I'm about as sentimental as the guy who works at the video store from Clerks, but it doesn't make sense to me. I can see writing a blog post about it, but sharing it on a private Facebook page takes things too far.
That being said, it is nice to see an old couple from Oklahoma get some positive attention. Say what you want about Oklahomans, but we always go out of our way to kiss celebrity ass. We'll pay for your meals and even pretend to like your movies. Just be nice to us.
