    That’s so funny.
    It’s still very hard to resist the customary cheer when there’s a crash from the kitchen – dates back to boarding school days.

    There’s a special place in hell for the numpties who clap during the performance of a play, let alone stand when it’s over just because the person beside them does.

      But where do you stand on clapping after every jazz solo? I prefer to reserve my applause only for when I feel the performer plays something particularly exceptional – I don’t want to feel like I’m gong along with convention out of peer pressure

        Reminds me of the story about the fellow washed up on a small island. He lay conked out for three days, and was awoken by one of the natives. In the background, up in the hills, there were many drums being beaten. It went on and on, 24hours a day, non stop. He asked the native after a few days if there was any way to stop those drums as they were doing his head in.
        The native said ‘ no – you wouldn’t want those drums to stop’
        ‘why’ the fellow asked
        ‘Bass solo’ came the reply.

            agreed, but I guess it’s done in a style to keep the youtube masses interested -seems to be a winning formula with over 3 million hits in less than 3 weeks
