Library Musical. "Sometimes, you are moved by such a strong emotion that you can only express it through song. As we learn from musical theatre that emotion can swell up anytime: in a corner deli, on a playground, in an open field--and even at the library."

That was funny and cute. And, dammit, ballsy.

Grrrr, I can't get it to come up here at work. Does it have anything to do with a woman named Marian?

Where's a librarian when you need one?

Hey, I recognize that library...and some of the people inside it. Might it be at Columbia University?

Ahh, those crazy kids.

This is an oldie but a goodie. Thought it was a dobule post, but I guess it's ne'er graced these hallowed blue halls.

Some of the people at the tables were trying to hide their laughing--very funny. Can't wait to get home to have sound.

If someone got on my subway train and started lecturing... I'd either pee my pants laughing or have to make out with them right there. Maybe both. Hopefully not in that order.

TPSh, what train do you take and when?

What, how is this different from what happens in the library every day? Most places, you can't throw a Chilton's without hitting a couple breaking out in song.

I, too, immediately thought of "Music Man" Harold Hill attempting to woo a disinterested Marian Paroo. Oh, we've got trouble ...

That would make a good flashmob, to do a bigger number in some public place (like the train station opera).

I wish I had video of Singing Christian Asian Man. He's a guy here in DC that appears on the METRO: gets on the car, says "thank you very much" and then sings one song, usually a Christian hymn, and exits at the next stop. His sincerity is both humorous and poignant.
