Anthropologist Wanted

Emailed to me by two different people: The American Scene boys have a party.
“Over here is like the conversation party, and over here is like the dance party,” pronounced Mr. Salam. He danced vigorously, and alone, in the living room to Ghostface Killah, the Libertines, the Clash, the New Pornographers.
These two lines in juxtaposition amused me:

"So far, no one had established any reverse traffic up to the bedrooms."

"Mr. Douthat proudly declared in the dining room that the corkscrew had been broken from use."
