During 23rd Viewing Of Titanic Local Woman Still Hopes Ship Won’t Hit Iceberg

WESTCHESTER, NY — It was her 23rd viewing of the classic film Titanic, when local woman Joanne Pipers was still hoping the ship wouldn’t hit that pesky iceberg. Joanne became a die hard Titanic fan after she discovered the movie during a James Cameron marathon on TNT last month. After watching it she went out and bought a VCR and a VCR tape of the movie. You know, the one where you have to put in a second tape to watch the rest of the movie? Since then she’s watched the movie a total of 23 times. Which means she has spent 69 hours of the past month watching this movie.

Anyway, during the first viewing she was on the edge of her seat when the ship was about to hit the iceberg. But like we mentioned, this past Tuesday was Joanne’s 23rd viewing. 23rd. And she still claims she really thought the ship would miss it this time. We had a chance to sit down with Joanne to get the scoop.

HippoThoughts: So, Joanne. We can’t help but ask… don’t you kind of see it coming?

Joanne: Well let me ask you this, if you walked in a crosswalk during the Don’t Walk sign and got hit by a car, would you see that coming??

HT: Uh, yes I think I would see that coming.

Joanne: Well what if you saw gum on a seat and then sat in the seat and then the gum got stuck to your pants? Would you see that coming??

HT: Ummmm, yes. Yes I believe I would.

Joanne: YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND. IF THEY JUST VEER LEFT A LITTLE BIT MORE NEXT TIME, WE WILL NEVER HAVE TO ENDURE ANOTHER INSUFFERABLE ‘COULD HE HAVE FIT ON THE DOOR’ BUZZFEED QUIZ!

Joanne’s passion for the movie is no doubt admirable. Her 24th viewing is coming up on Friday. She’s very optimistic that this time… they will see the iceberg coming.
