How to Train Your Dragon Box-Office Victory Boon for Dragon Puns

As we previously noted, the animated movie How to Train Your Dragon won the weekend box office, in its fourth week of release. This was good news, not only for DreamWorks and people who like animated Vikings, but also for fans of tortured dragon puns! If you hadn't heard that dragons can fly, soar, breath fire, and singe, well, it's not the fault of the people writing How to Train Your Dragon headlines. Get your fill, because the Carey Mulligan–David Fincher adaptation of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo isn't going to be out for awhile.
