*Five-year-old Spencer Silverman got a round of applause after MoMA security got him out of the chair at the request of his parents (who maybe should have gotten a few boos). After his sitting was asked: What were you thinking of while you were sitting? Answer: Godzilla pictures. Spencer later told his father that he could have sat for "25 more minutes."

  1. Some backstory to the above photo. The people on the line were kind enough to let Spencer cut to the front for his sitting. As his father I felt that it was unfair to keep him sitting there when he waited only a few minutes for his chance to sit. Knowing Spencer he truly could have sat for quite a while longer.
