The Clap

I hate when people clap at movies. Seriously. What the fuck? Who are you clapping for? You're really just clapping for yourself. Or, to what? other people that you understood and appreciated what the movie was trying to say? Are you that insecure? I can tolerate it on an airplane because at least the pilot is present to bathe in your adulation, but not at movies...unless it's the premiere.


  1. Completely agreed--although I think you're being very generous with your tolerance of the airplane clap...

  2. I confess to having clapped at the end of Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy. Maybe so that Douglas Adams could hear it in Heaven.
