1. The pixies that you hope will replenish the toilet paper when you've just used the last of it but are in too much of a hurry to replenish yourself.
2. The pixies that stole the last of the toilet tissue when you could swear there was at least half a roll 4 hours ago.
3. The pixies that laugh at you when you've just survived a spine chilling bout of diarrhea only to discover that the tissue pixies are not on your side today. The only thing within arm's reach that you can wipe your ass with is one last whispy sheet of toilet roll. The pixies leave this one sheet just to watch you attempt to use it.

Jack: "Linda? Can you come in here and pass me a new roll of toilet paper?"

Mike: "Phew, I could have shit through the eye of a needle!... dammit! Who the hell used the last of the tissue?"

A person who pays to go to the movies just to act like they're bored and spoil the experience for everyone else in the theatre.
They are unable to sit still for two hours without eating, talking or going to the bathroom. their weapons include noisy candy wrappers, perpetual cellphone conversations and whining about how they don't know what's going on in the movie because they spent the first half of it eating, urinating and talking on the phone.
Popcorn flickers have recently started attending live theatre performances. Thankfully, the house policies of no entry after the performance has started and no food in the auditorium keeps them to a minimum. For now.
Suzie: "Hey John, lets go catch a movie"
John: "Hell no Suzie! It's Saturday afternoon. The movie theatre will be full of Popcorn Flickers"
