Joe Queenan & the Camelot Incident

"A guy sat down next to me on the Metroliner in Washington and started making phone calls," the writer and humorist Joe Queenan once recalled. "I told him he could make one more call, but after that I's start singing show tunes. He thought I was joking and kept on phoning. So I faced his right ear and started belting out, If ever I would leave you, it wouldn't be in summer, which is from Camelot. He'd thought I was joking. He found out..."

[Queenan later told a therapist about this incident. "Do you think singing show tunes is a form of anger?" he asked. "Yes," the man replied. Queenan agreed: "Especially," he added, "from Camelot!"]
