I’ve heard that fancier restaurants use classical music because … well … it’s supposed to make people feel classy. Same with certain stores. If wine is served while classical music is playing people will think it’s a better wine. And classy means rich, right? Because everyone knows that rich people are classy. And listen to classical music. Exclusively.

As classical music plays in the background, a man and woman dressed for a black tie cocktail party haughtily describe their life since Michael R. Bloomberg became mayor. “Can you believe Michael Bloomberg pulled off four more years?” the man asks. “That’s good for us,” the woman coos. “Since Michael’s been mayor, we’ve gotten four times richer, just like he has.”

Ah yes … no one haughty would listen to anything but classical music. I’m just sure of it.

I read it here.


  1. Really, people who think that only rich and haughty people listen to classical music should see me… Or my boyfriend, with his dreadlocks. Or any other person at school.

  2. It’s pretty funny, isn’t it? But, alas, the stereotype does come from somewhere. Too bad ….
