Are You Not Entertained?

Lately, school has me feeling like Maximus Decimus Meridius (from Gladiator). 

In one particular scene early in his fighting career, Maximus quickly defeats a pretty intimidating gladiator with great ease. After lopping off the guy’s head, Maximus throws his helmet and sword to the ground. He looks out on the cheering audience and begins to yell: “Are you not entertained?!?! Is this not why you are here?!?!

As he yells this, however, the crowd continues to chant his name and fails to hear what he is trying to tell them. They are, indeed, entertained.
