When Harry Met Sally gets me every single time. It doesn’t matter it if I catch it in the beginning or the middle or the (extremely stressful) New Year’s Eve end, I always end up watching whatever’s left. There’s just something about 1989 Billy Crystal that pulls me in. And that’s why I got so excited to when I saw that Improv Everywhere re-enacted the famous orgasm scene in Katz’s Deli recently, the exact place where the scene originally took place. And I know you know the scene that I’m talking about. There aren’t too many rom-coms that can make a “deli orgasms” a thing. (Although I shudder to think that’s a thing on Urban Dictionary.)
While I expect you to know what it means when someone says, “I’ll have what she’s having,” I’ll forgive you for not being as familiar with Improv Everywhere. They’re a hilarious prank group that pulls off all kinds of zany stunts. Whenever I’m in a large crowd that starts acting strange, I always cross my fingers that I’m about to witness one. So far it turns out that I just have a strange propensity for weird crowds with lots of excess energy. But one day…maybe…if the Angels win the pennant.
Until then I can just keep appreciating the fact that there people out there who are brave enough to orgasm publicly while other people are eating dinner. And note, I did say people and not person. Because why should only one person get to re-enact this amazing scene!?
