According to NBC, a Seattle area movie theatre was evacuated on Friday (November 29) after receiving a leaking package of bodily fluids.
The North Bend Theatre in North Bend, WA, received a package that was labelled as including a "highly contagious human substance," which was leaking through its box. Hazmat teams were called to the scene, where they soon determined it was a box of piss.

The peepee package had apparently been intended for a clinic in Tacoma, some 40 miles away from the North Bend Theatre. The theatre manager was taken to a hospital as a precaution, but he did not sustain injuries as a result of the incident, nor did any moviegoers.
How the box of piss wound up at the movie theatre is unclear, but cinemagoers should be thankful that the staff didn't mistake it for their popcorn's free butter substitute.
