There Ought to Be A Law

There's one thing that you see in films, with shocking regularity, and I hope one day they pass some sort of regulation to prevent the perpetuation of such shocking abuse.

What kind of filmic abuse am I on about?

Billiards table abuse, of course.

No one should ever be filmed placing a drink anywhere near a pool table, not on the rails, and especially not on the felt itself.

Even worse, pool tables are ever popular for filming people engaged in vigorous activities that may or may not involve the exchange of bodily fluids.

That ain't right.

Please filmmakers, please stop.

(was watching this film on IFC, and one of the characters placed her pint of ale right on the felt)
