This Will Be Funny to Exactly Two People

It reminded me a lot of the ending to A Charlie Brown Christmas, where all the Peanuts characters cheer “Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown!” and then Charlie Brown joins them as they break into song. Except instead of the Peanuts gang it was about thirty people I didn’t know at some random party, and instead of cheering as I walked by they were screaming into a cellular phone as I listened on a cellular phone in an entirely different state, and then instead of breaking into song I just sort of shook my head a bit and hung up.
