“What are you in for?”
“I robbed a bank. You?”
“Kidnapping. How about you, little man?”
“Well… I videotaped five minutes of Lord of the Rings.”
And they all moved away from me…
If I bore a cocktail party with my ability to perform, from memory, the Woody Allen moose joke (verbatim, from his live album) is that just a misdemeanor? What if I quote Arnold on my blog? Take a picture of my wife in front of a movie poster?
It’s easy to laugh at this, but it’s also insanely scary.
