  1. It would be funnier if, as soon as the guy with the video recorder arrived, the mayhem suddenly ended.

  2. Most of the party was fun and harmonious – and unrecorded. As soon as a fight broke out, someone with a camera showed to to capture it.

  3. DNH — the earlier stuff isn’t fun and harmonious. Once someone’s drinking directly from the punchbowl and people are wearing lampshades, people have already gotten drunk and out of control.

  4. Close, but no cigar. The guy showing up with the camera is simply another horrible event in a party that has been getting out of control. No self-respecting host would dream of wanting a record of everything that has been happening there. Unless, of course, the new guest is his lawyer, and is simply offering a way to defend against liability lawsuits later.

  5. This is why we can’t have “fun” parties any more – everybody has a video camera in their phone, everyone is afraid to do something stupid/cringeworthy/suitable for youtube. All of the inappropriate behavior has to stop once people might be recorded and *gasp* held accountable for their actions. (Unless you’re still in college, apparently, where such behavior appears to still be celebrated and encouraged, eve if it might cost you a job somewhere down the line when a prospective employer checks out your FB feed).

  7. I read it as the party’s bad turn being attributed to the presence of a camera, like a superstitious person might imagine their forgetting their umbrella one day has caused it to be the one day it rains.

  8. Could it also be an America’s Funniest Home Videos reference? There was a time that show was all the rage

  9. Has anybody ever really worn a lampshade on his head?

    Seems to me that would obstruct his vision and he might slip on a banana peel

  10. I have never seen someone wearing a lampshade, but I think the idea is that you put it on and say “Look at the ridiculous hats the ladies are wearing these days” and then after you get laughs you take it off. And then you pull your shirt tail through your fly and pull out the linings of your pants pockets and say “Look, I’m an elephant!”
