White House press secretary Robert Gibbs on his cellphone

Other people's cellphones are really annoying, aren't they?

But today during the regular media briefing Gibbs had had enough of other people's cellphones going off and disrupting his official talking.

Watch the video and see what he does. Later, he suggested cotton candy would be added to the circus.
