Karaoke night
after the elderly relatives have left the Wedding Reception
when someone makes clever cultural references
if you’re ever a contestant on Jeopardy
when you’re watching Forrest Gump
just in case you find yourself at a Fraternity Party
when you’re watching Glee
during Saturday Night Live skits
