Today In Embarrassed Clapping

Posted by Kevin "the Intern" Otzenberger on Thu, Nov 18, 2010 at 2:14 PM

They do things differently down in South America. Here, we have a group of Argentinian lawmakers shouting through a legislative hearing that looks like it's being held at a job fair. But amid the chaos, one politician has the sudden brass to break it all up with a moment of clarity. A clarity that comes in the form of a good old fashioned white collar beating.

So then, if you've just been slapped by your professional colleague in front of everybody, what do you do? Do you keep talking? Do you cry? Do you body slam her through a table? No. You grin and applaud. "Thank you ma'am, may I have another?"

If only he'd just clapped more slowly!
